Dunlop Elite 130/70HB-18 front tire

This product was the best price I could find. When I went to my local shop, they wanted $295.00 for this same tire. I received it when I was supposed to and so far I am very pleased with the bike is handling with the new tire.

Lowest price, good website

Let's face it, I ordered a name brand product that was an OEM replacement for what I already had. The comparison of the product is moot. The website on the other hand is quite good, easy to search, remembers my bike info, and gives me products that actually match my bike without having to wade through endless levels of generic products. I do feel that the review page could be simplified.
