Rear tire price help

I found an Avon 200/70-15 for $218. free shipping....... sounded good but not sure, any better prices to be had?

Plus Ive been looking into going over to the darkside but had trouble finding a tire that will measure up to the mc 200 series tires size wise. The 200/70-15 come up to a 26inch diameter, not so with the ds tires I shopped the closest was 24.98in. for the 195/65, even the 205/65 was 25.49, not even sure it would fit in there.

Any I might have missed, was thinking of going light truck tire, not quite as wide but taller?

Looking for longevity and RPM change on the top end.

I've decided to accept the fact - I'll always be a big kid!

I get my tires from here since I found they have the best prices and free shipping. I personally don't like the idea of putting a car/truck tire on a motorcycle.I know alot of people do it but motorcycle tires are made differently for the handling capabilities .Just my 2 cents.

I've been buying Metzlers from motorcyclesuperstore.com (They carry a bunch of brands too) They have free shipping and have provided superb service and fast shipping times so far. Also they have consistently been the lowest price when I have looked.

Good Luck !
