Anybody buy tires from Chapparal Motorsports in California? Thanks, shopping for new tires for my 2012 250 Rebel with original tires on it...only 900 miles on it, but figure tires aren't really safe. Looking at Bridgestones, but any advice is welcome. Thanks!

If you haven't mounted motorcycle tires before, it's a good idea to place something between the rim and tire iron to avoid marring the rim. Heavy plastic bottles, old leather gloves or store bought protectors will work. I find it easier to (carefully) saw through the steel threads on the rim than to fight getting the old, stiff tire off. Just be careful not to cut the rim if you do this.
