Default tires



I have owned two Rialtas. Fiinding tires for them has been a real problem. I had a blowout while traveling in Maine and it took me over a week to find tires like the original equipment.


More recently, I decided to replace all four tires on my 2001 HD. Again, no success in my central NY state area.


I went on line and found a very responsive vendor. I wanted the same size and brand as original equipment. I talked to them on Wednesday, they said they would ship on Friday and I had the tires on Monday. Good service and a good price. I paid shipping and the local mounting and balancing charge. It work out well.

I bought the tires from "tirerack.com". I found their phone number on the web site and talked with several knowlegable folks. The front tires were in inventory when I called on a Wednesday and they expected the rears later in the week. All worked as planned. They shipped both sets late Friday and I had them late in the day on Monday. Great service and a good price. They are like the original equipment "Continental Vanco"


I am a happy camper.
