I priced a set of tires at the local dealership today. About $500.00 for a set of reg. Dunlops mounted and balanced. $120.00 for labor. A friend of mine works at a tire store. I'm gonna see what kind of prices he can come up with.

Done deal after a lot of time going over reviews, I ordered a set of E3's. MT90-HB 16 front, MU90-HB 16 rear. $273.00 to the door, 3-5 days delivery. Glad this part is over. Might try to plug my rear tire tomorrow, or leave the nails in it since it's not losing pressure. I'm a little leary about leaving them in, but there's no telling how long they've been in there. I'll be nut's if I don't ride for a week.

May be. I just felt the E3 was a little more time tested. Could be wrong, I don't know. Both had really good reviews. It was a hard decision, I think either way I would've been alright. I was really tired of wracking my brain, I'm glad it's done.

I'm leaning toward the M-C II'S aswell.... The only thing i'm not sure about is the lack of white walls...??? Can't seem to determine if they're available... I think my Classic wears white walls well...

My Dunlops have been good to me, mind you...

08 FLHTC. Breathing well and getting lots to drink.

I agree. They both seem to get good reviews.

After several hundred miles on the E3's, I must say I'm well pleased. They are everything people said they were. I know any new set of tires will feel better than worn out ones. But these tires seem to grip well and feel like you're on a rail. As for the mileage, only time will tell. So far, I would recommend these tires for anyone.
