Where to get a tire quick?

As the title says, where can I get a tire quick, before Sunday? I need a Metzler M-3 190/50-17. If I pull the wheel off I would have to borrow a stand from someone if possible. I want to participate in Ken's class on the 1st but won't be able too with my current tire.

I see one of the vendors has it for $210.

Suggestions? Help?

Any dealer that has a Parts Unlimited account can get it within the week, as long as the PU warehouse in WI or NC has them, which they should.

You can put a Pirelli take off on there today if you want. It'd be a lot cheaper than new, would meet your goals, and we could get it on there today.

BTW - Metzler has the same profile as a Pirelli.

Good point. Metzler and Pirelli are the same company. IIRC, most of the tires are made in the same plant and there is substantial overlap in compounds, profiles, etc.

No response, so I guess I can't put it on for you today.

Just got home.

Wink, I appreciate the offer. I'm down to cords and trailerless. That jaunt from Joliet would probably kill me if I tried.

Cheyenne, PM sent.

Thanks All.
