Online Motorcycle Tire Retailers:  Tire purchasing tips - Make sure your tires are in stock before you finalize the order.  Get a confirmed shipping date.  Always use a credit card (don't pay by cash or check!).  Make sure your credit card will not be charged until the tires are actually shipped.  Be careful of shipping and handling charges; also, some retailers will add on a percentage of the sales price as an added "handling" charge.  Be careful and ask first!
