    Jake Wilson has good prices. That is who I use for tires.

    I just purchase a set of Dunlop E3's from DennisKirk, absolute best price I found anywhere.

    Motorcycle Superstore and Dennis Kirk both advertise that they will beat anybody's price (both have free shipping). All you have to do is mail them the web link with the lower price. I have bought several tires from Motorcycle S.S. and the oldest date code tire I ever got was 4 months old.

    Another vote for Motorcycle Superstore, good prices and fast shipping, just got a set of HD Dunlop from them and the date code is last December of 11.

    Well I tried Rocky Mountain ATV/MC they had low prices and free shipping. How do you check for date code when it arrives?

    I should have read the tip before posting it. It doesn't seem to have date code info. There will be an oval on the side of the tire, inside will be 4 digits, first two are week and last two are year. Say today is the 10 th. week of the year, a tire made sometime since last sunday would read 1012.
