Honda dealer price for tires

Looking at replacing front and rear tires on my 2014 Goldwing. I have decided on replacing with the original Bridgestone radial tires. Dealers in my area are quoting $530 -$550 for tires, install, and balancing. Just curious what everyone else has paid. I don't have a lift or jack to do it myself. I have 13,000 miles on tires.

You can buy a set of Bridgestone tires from wingstuff.com for $314.00 (they are on sale now) and take them to any bike repair shop and the usual price here in GA $30.00 per tire mount and balanced. Or take tires and bike to any repair shop and pay $30.00 per tire and $50.00 more for them to take the wheels off. Wingstuff doesn't charge taxes or shipping.
So your price would be either $374.00 or $424.00. But it's here in GA. If you are in Florida you can order the tires to my address and when they come you can take a pleasure trip to ATL and I will take you to my shop to have them installed.

I get mine through our shop through Parts Canada (employee rate is cost + 15%) but obviously not everyone gets that deal. Canadian retail is higher than US but I net down to just about Wingstuff price VIP and no cross border taxes or exchange rates. We don't have a m/c tire tech in town so I send the bike or wheels to Riverside in St Albert (100 miles away) and they charge me $125 for mounting front and rear, no balance since I have centramatics.

Another thing to consider. Buy online, have your dealer install them and hope you don't have a warranty issue with the tire. Your dealer will probably charge you again to dismount the tires and you will have to send them back. And wait for replacements. Then pay again to have them mounted again.
I realize this scenario is not not common, but!
Also, you keep your dealer in business I have a very good rapport with my dealer and want to keep it that way. He comes pretty close to the online price for tires and parts.

Agreed . But you're just screwing the parts department, not the mechanic. Don't screw the mechanic. He's your best friend.

And the dealer's profit margin. He owns the parts dept.

Checked with Bridgestone today on the current $50 rebate for two tires. Of course it does not cover the G709 and G704! Still waiting on two more price quotes from other dealers. Sure wish my buddy in North Carolina lived closer, he has a nice lift table with wheel chock and drop panel.
