I have never purchased tires for my 2009 C14 that I got last fall. Cycle gear quoted me 415 plus 25 for each mount if I bring in Wheels. This for Michelin 5. I have the tire irons and ability to change tires but with a machine that will run this fast I feel I need balancing. Facing this every 5K miles makes me squeak a bit. Can't imagine what it would cost if I just took in the bike to a shop and said do it. I realize with 4 riders I will get 17 opinions on tire choices so that is not the issue. What is the best way to do tires if not afraid of a little work. I would have to check all the fasteners after someone else did it anyway. I'm way to old to be too trusting. I will check prices for buying online with shipping. Thank You all.
