where are you staying and what sizes and type of tires you
are looking for.

Best to set it up ahead of time and they will have tires ready.

I'm in Scottsdale and I know of several small independent shops who can help out.

Thanks for the response Walkingbear. I am not sure what tire I will be putting on my 2009 DL1000 this time. I may have to do both. I will be in East Mesa and have some time to look around with a car. I am looking for a shop with a good selection and good prices. Hopefully get some input about what may work for me.

I don't like to give too much of advice on tires because there's always someone else that knows a lot more than everyone else which will certainly dispute every tire selection but I do have a tire changer. You're welcome to use that if you need it.

:) I'm on the East side. Power Rd and Germann.

I'm with Walkingbear on this one after having to buy a front tire at one store and a rear at a second store. I would not make my selection based on store advice and figure it out here by asking experienced riders for their recommendations based upon the terrain and distances you plan on covering.

My recommendations:
a. Buy the tires in advance and ship them to an ADVrs house where you can change them.
b. decide upon the tire(s) you want now and make arrangements with a local store to buy them in advance of your arrival and then have them mounted when you get here.
c. roll the dice and see what happens when you get here. Be prepared to lose a few days if they don't have what you want.

What tires to buy? I have nothing to offer on that topic :)

Hey Cyberdos , Very generous offer and its truly appreciated. I am in good shape for tools and a place to do the change. If a shop can talk me into it with a good deal , then they'll have my business.

Looks like members here gave me a couple good leads here. Thanks. If I get something sent to me I'll have a tire in hand , if not I can work with the contacts here and get it done.

Without getting into nitty gritty of it I am 1/2 way through a rear and have really "unpleasant" aggressive new tire on the front and the noise is too much to bear. Will be going way more on the street side with some dirt capability.

Thanks all
