Where to buy TKC80's in Los Angeles?

New to Los Angeles, and wondering if anyone knew a good place to get some TKC80's put on my R1200GSA. Any recommended shops in the area? I'm in Long Beach.

I live in Long Beach too. I would highly recommend ordering the tires online and finding a cheap mom and pop that can install them.

You might try BA Moto in Signal Hill. I happened upon them just driving around one day and they're a cool group of guys that ride brits, but they also know Japanese and maybe BMW, but they can definitely mount and balance a tire for cheaper than a dealer shop.

Also, in Signal Hill, there is a place called Extreme Supply. They are an online retailer, but you can go in and buy stuff too. Just give them a call first. They might have your tires. I used them for some Held gloves and they let me try on different sizes and beat any other prices I could find.

I always order online and mount/bal myself, but if you're looking for someone to install tires on your bike I'm sure they could help you.

Mc tireworks in Lomita. Where Anaheim street meets western. Good dudes. As mom and pop as you can get.

Good source for tires and while you wait install.

Also, Valdi & son David, independent BMW tech's with tires in stock. Good folk with very personalized service.

Both shops are close, in Torrance.
