    My buddy and I are in Vegas for a few days and he needs a new rear tire. Best shop in the area? Talked to cycle gear and they wanted the wheel for 24hrs to do a tire change.

    I’d rather give business to a local shop but a good dealer will do if that’s what the locals use.

    It’s your best bet for tires in Vegas.

    If you are passing through Saint George try Rocky Mountain MC/ATV. They mounted and balanced a tire (off the bike) for $16.

    Thanks! We are going through St. George next week and their website says they have the tires we are looking for. We'll give them a call tomorrow.

    I was there three weeks ago - found some cracks I didn't like in my old tire while stopping in Tonopah. Their web warehouse is in Salt Lake, limited selection in St. George. They quoted the tire at $200, but the final bill was $275 so there must have been some extra fees. They did let me take off the wheel in the parking lot, which got me outta there real quick. Otherwise I would have waited the whole day since they only had one dude working in the shop. Was real happy not to have that cracked tire constantly on my mind on the rest of my trip!

    Was hoping to pick up a new rear tire there a few weeks ago, but they didn't have anything in the St. George location.
