    Afternoon-

    I just bought new tires online for my 1150gs. Does anybody know a reliable place in Maryland (Rockville area) or Va. (Tysons corner area) that will do a good job and not charge an arm & leg to do it?

    Local shop in Rockville just quoted me $95.00 per tire...seems a bit high to me.

    Appreciate any advice or past experience you may have.
    Thanks.

    Thanks!
    I called and spoke to George.

    You're right - seems like a real stand up guy and will do the job for me. Heading there in a couple days.

    Appreciate the quick reply.

    You could also try EUBMW in Alexandria, VA 571-294-2386
    Bet they would give you a good deal.

    Have you tried RAM Cycles on Gude Dr? I have never dealt with them but have heard good things.

    This may be too far to consider but I use JT Motorsports in Frederick, MD. I carry the wheels and tires in to them and they mount and balance for $35 each. Several times they have beat internet prices on tires also. They are a Kawasaki, Suzuki, KTM dealer.
