    IMO Cockpit Tyres Chiang Mai are the most competitive for MC tyre pricing.

    FWIW I shopped round last year in both Chiang Rai & Chiang Mai and no one was able to beat the Cockpit prices I'd been quoted. The owner of the Cockpit tyre store is a motorcycle fan and goes out of his way to help fellow bikers source tyres and more. His bike and a few others are parked inside the tyre bay.

    Cockpit Tyres (backs onto the CM Airport).
    Hang Dong Rd. (Highway 108) heading northeast (ttowards CM).
    Opposite Maisamakee Soi 5 &
    Across the road from the large Honda cars dealership

    NB. No association or anything to gain personally from the endorsement.
