Damn, they have my tire! I just payed 70 for mine shipped and could have got it for 45! Well, noted for next time. Thanks for the link!

Rocky Mountain also takes an extra $10 off, if you buy both front and rear tires from them. They also have a second site Jake Wilson, same prices. That means you can get a set of Metzeler ME880 for less than $200 delivered. Best prices I've seen!

These people rock
http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com and http://www.jakewilson.com (two sites, but same company and service)! I wanted to purchase Metzeler ME880 tires, but the price was just a bit out of my range. However, with all the discounts (10% code and $10 tire combo credit) I was able to purchased a set of Metzeler ME880 for under $200, shipped same day and great customer service (we emailed back and forth because I wanted the 'freshest' tires they had in stock). They also have straight, 45 degree and 90 degree metal valve stems for $2/piece. Picked up a 90 degree for the back (the current straight one makes it difficult to check the pressure) and straight for the front. I hope to get the new shoes installed this week.

Got my tires today (ME880's)! Great deal, I got the oversized. Probably won't get them on till next week. Can't wait to try them out.

How do you know you are getting fresh tires...

I believe their volume is large enough that there's no problem with stale tires. Ordered four from Jake Wilson and the oldest one was four months old.

I emailed them prior to placing the order and they had a tech run down and get the manufacture date off the tires. They was very responsive and got me the dates within an hour or two. The front was under 1 year old and the rear was almost exactly 1 year old. About the same as the local shops who wanted over $100 more for the set.

I then placed the order and sent a second email to confirm that I would receive the tires specified. Again, they quickly emailed a confirmation and the tires were shipped that day. I got them two or three days later and verified that the dates were indeed the ones they specified. Jake Wilson had the best price (with all the discounts) on Metzelers that I could find and followed it up with good service (and 90 degree metal stems). I would definitely buy from them again.
