What tire and where to have it mounted?

Looking for a good budget 120/70/17 tire that is less than $80 shipped if possible and who can mount and balance for the cheapest near Schaumburg? I rather have it done while I wait so I don't have downtime.

I have a slightly used tire you can have for $30. I'll check the brand when I get home, but I think it's a Michilin Pilot Power.

I can drop the tire off @ Chicago Performance for you. He can mount it up for you. Give him the cash, he will add it to my credit.

That may work, can you send me pictures please and about how many miles on it?

Look at this tire, do you think it needs replacing? This is only 1 side of it

This guy does not understand Dugster.... Let him be.

If Dave wants to help him, that's ok. Unfortunately I only have stacks of 20 dollar tires. And I don't have a waiting room.

That doesn't look worn? Sorry I'm still new to bikes, and never seen a car tire look like this. Maybe because they aren't as soft.?

that wear pattern is at the edge of the tires, something 99% of people will never use on the street.

I personally would run those for at least this season, ultimately it is your decision

The tire I have is a pirelli dragon supercorsa. It has been on the track a bit, but has plenty of life in it. Idk what this tire would sell for. Nick, what do you think it's worth?

I have a few front tires, that are not badly worn - take offs from racing.
also I know someone in streamwood that can swap your tire for a good price...

I've got a stock Dunlop front tire you can have for free, but you have to drive to brookfield to get it. I have a matching rear you can have too, but it's squared off a bit.

They don't have a ton of life left, but the miles per $$ is worth it
