Tire Changing in DC/NOVA area?

Talk to the Space's or Xssquiggy, they both have mack daddy Coats 220's. Or visit your local dealer and spend $$$$$$$$$$$$$ ordering tires and having them installed.

I recomend ordering what you want from Southwestmototires.com and being real nice to one of the people mentioned above and they just may allow you to learn on thier Coats...........

Fix that situation, would you? Your place is a lot closer to me than your pop's.

Woo hoo, I might have to get in on this too.

My KLR needs a fresh hoop on the front.

Sorry, not as quick on the uptake. Ours should be in operation on Sunday, still have to build a base for it, but your welcome once it has been christened.

Thanks for that. I couldn't wait. I had a screw in my front tire and I had to replace it right away. I basically got "screwed" because my tire/wheel insurance wouldn't cover anything because there was 2/32" of an inch left on the tire and Bob's had already gone through much of the process by the time the insurance company refused my claim. They won't cover the replacement cost of a worn tire. So it was $114 for the tire and $64 to put it on and balance it.
