For example a Dunlop756 in Colorado
Rockymountainmc.com $46.99+$8.00 shipping = $54.99
Performance Cycle (Local joint)$59.99
Vickery Yamaha (Yamaha Dealer)$70.99
Boulder Yamaha (Colo Power sp)$99.99
It is obvious where I buy my tires but what the hell. Why is there such a diffrents??? To me, If I owned a dealship I would more or less sell tires for cost to attrack people to come in to my store for other things.

Good luck, I tried ordering a set of tires from them and the guy told me that they wouldn't ship east of the rockies.

Rocky Mountain gets volume discounts so they can afford to charge you less.
Vickery, Fay Myers, etc. charge what they want and it's worked for them for years. Why change? If people are dumb enough to spend the extra cash there it's their own fault. My local Yamaha dealer charges $800 for freight and setup on a new WR. It blows me away that people buy from them.

If they want my business they will advertise the tires at their best price. I dont think its right to have to shop around yourself and then give them (DK) the business to save $1. They are going to have to do a LOT better than $1 to get my business.
I will buy from the guy that has the best advertised price.
But thanks for the head up comp182.
