    I'm from Ohio, but took a last minute trip out west. Horrible internet connection.. Took almost 10min to get to this site! Due to frustration after 30 wasted minutes simply looking for a dealer near Denver, I figured I'd just ask here.

    Anyways, my tires are getting bad about 1500 miles before I expected them to, so I'm looking for a dealer that sells/installs them (wheels will be still on bike) for a Buell Ulysses. I always do tire changes myself, but my health is falling, and I don't have the tools with me anyways. Don't really care about brand.. Just need some road based tires, and a dealer who won't blow my entire budget.. Any suggestions would be awesome! Thanks

    Call TFOG Wheelsports
    He has taken care of my tire needs with little or no notice a couple times. Does ride in appointments. Great prices also. Hopefully he has your sizes in stock. Bet he does.

    Woody's Wheel Works are great folks who stock and sell tires. (303) 936-0232

    Rocky Mountain Harley was the local Buell Dealer. Doubt they stock tires for the Buells any longer. (303) 703-2885

    Grand Prix in Littleton has a large inventory (mostly Dunlop) and they do on the bike tire changes for any brand bike. (303) 223-6465

    TFOG Wheelsports. He does Buell work. Most of the local Buell club uses him for tires, etc....

    performance cycle offers the widest selection of tires. if convenient, you can buy the tires there and take elsewhere for installation.

    woody's wheel works are great. if they stock the tires you want, go there before tfog.

    Awesome call on TFOG! It's right by red Rock amphitheater, which was where I was planning on going today. Since it was so close (and they weren't open when I left) I just stopped in... Quoted me a fair price.. And is installing them right now.. Thanks!
