Rocky mountain is pretty steady with prices. Just watch where you buy from, some quote prices including shipping and others play the BS games and make a small fortune on shipping. Some have decent prices with shipping but they don't have any parts in stock so it takes three weeks to get it. We are in a big crap shoot with our TWs. The very best price is often a very bad joke and some vendors don't give a crap about you. Always ask if the part is in stock and ready to ship before you buy.Gary - What's a good site to buy TW tires? Thanks!
Even if you have to pay shipping to return the TW31, it's in your best interest. he shinko is a little cheaper anyway, it'll be a wash in the end for a much better tire.hi again guys.
well, that is good to know about the front, but maybe too late. I just thought putting the original tire brand and sizes was a good move. and no, the cheapest I could find for a trailwing 34 was 108 bucks, and the cheapest for the trailwing 31 was 72 dollars. (and that was out of Chapparal Motorsports in San Bernadino, CA. an Amazon.com vendor) my local shop will mount them for 25 a piece. so a little over 230 dollars total to have new tires for me here in Ohio. I did not know about the Shinko as I'm new to the tw200. just got it this week. I'll post pics soon.
I appreciate all the replies and advice.
Such a true statement... The TW31 got the nickname "deathwing" for a reason. They just are not very good at all.Even if you have to pay shipping to return the TW31, it's in your best interest. he shinko is a little cheaper anyway, it'll be a wash in the end for a much better tire.
For the front just get a tube used for the rear of a "normal" dirt bike.yeah, I'm going to go ahead and get the new tubes too. it makes sense that they are just as expired as the tires. looks like about 20-25 bucks a piece at chapparal motor sports and bike bandit. the sizes of 180/80-14 and 130/80-18 are always the expensive ones.....because I see that regular motorcycle tubes can be as low as 7 dollars. man, these tw fat tires are expensive!!!!
does anyone know of a cheaper tube for the sizes I mentioned above. or the original tw200 tire tube sizes for front and rear....or is 20-25 dollars the general norm?
