Revzilla, best place to buy. I ordered 4 Angel GT tires (2 rear and 2 front) and they were delivered after 2 days to my Miami shipper (I live in Guatemala). Just got them, I will review them in separate post.

I would like to know what would be good tires for traveling on a bit of gravel. I am going on a trip with my bother who has a 1200GSA, so there may be some back roads. Any suggestions, other than buy a 1200GSA.

Getting a front PR4GT installed/balanced for $185 plus tax. That's with me bringing the wheel in already off the bike. Local Des Moines shop called Cycle Clinic.

I think Revzilla is a great supplier. I buy a lot of stuff from them. I understand they will drop ship tires to your dealer for mounting which is convenient. HOWEVER, Jake Wilson sells the Pirelli Angel GT's much cheaper than Revzilla with tires arriving in 3 days. Have some in transit now.

I think thats outrageous!

I bring in the wheels off my bike and get front & rear tires mounted and balanced for less than $80.00 at my local BMW dealer.

That includes the tire. $160 for the tire and $25 for the mount and balance. Just the front. PR4 GT.

A couple of weeks ago I ordered a set of PR4GT's from Rocky Mountain ATV. 340. 79 and they were at my door in 3 days. I first tried to order through Revzilla but the fronts weren't available, at that time. I just now did a little price comparison of Revzilla and Rocky Mountain ATV for PR4GT's. Revzilla: front 158. 05 rear 228.38. Rocky Mountain: front 140.99 rear 199.99. Total from Revzilla 386.43 Rocky Mountain ATV 340.98 (this is close to what I paid a couple of weeks ago). Same tires, both have free shipping and both have fast delivery.

Edit: Revzilla does offer Zilla cash so, depending on what you buy, you may get a little savings on your next purchase. At this time I have 10 bucks worth of Zilla cash. Personally, I kind of like the old fashion way of just paying a good price and be done with it.
