I have about 8300 miles on my Wing , at how many miles should I change the tires?
You have your Michelin on yet ????????I still have the front tire (E3's) that came with the bike. Thats 15K of my own riding. No idea how many was on it before I got it. Lee can attest that it was thin in North Carolina, so I guess I am taking it in on Monday cause "Daddy needs a new pair of shoes".
That is like bringing your own bottle into a bar. He doesn't want to mount a tire he doesn't sell for such a little profit. There are plenty of tire shops that will mount it for you.im thinking about a car tire now , but i called my local honda dealer and he will not do it
I live like 3 miles from there , that's were I bought the wing, but they will not do itGordo have you tried Pete's Cycle shop on Belair Rd. I use to get work done there years ago when I lived in Parkville. Sorry I missed you all in DC but it was a really good day. I'm up in Shrewsbury PA .
Thanks Larry never even thought about taking it to mid atlantic that's 2 miles away from meThat is like bringing your own bottle into a bar. He doesn't want to mount a tire he doesn't sell for such a little profit. There are plenty of tire shops that will mount it for you.
Tip from other darksiders on tire mounting. Don't call them, go to their shop and ask them. Over the phone, they don't want to get into a debate on it over a phone call. One way or the other on this issue. Some people have been known to call motorcycle shops to ask them that question only to tell them about the "liability" of a car tire on a motorcycle, yada yada yada.
Here is a generic motorcycle shop that mounts and balances tires in your city. Check them out:
Mid Atlantic Cycles
"We Service Most Japanese Bikes"

When I google motorcycle tire shops in your city, these guys come up:
Doug's Tire Service
103 W Belle St, Ridgely, MD 21660
Bel Air Motorcycle

Is this the Honda Shop that won't do it?

Also, if you ever shopped for tires at Motorcycle superstore, they give you a list of preferred installers. That is where I found the shop that mounts and balances motorcycle tires about 15 blocks from my home. They mounted my tires without comment.
