Arrowhead is cheaper by $20 front and $27 rear.

Also depends on stock situation... whoever actually has them can be considered the cheapest at the time!

Did that include shipping, disposal fee, etc?

Whitehorse and Arrow both charge $10 shipping per tire.

Does anyone ever check the manufacturing date on the tires you recieve? In May I put a Continental RoadAttack on my V-Strom and it was two years old. I have already wore the rear RoadAttack out and will be buying one tomorrow. Hopefully it will be newer than two years. The Avon Distanzia's on my KLR were less than a year old.

Both rear tires went, almost exactly, 6000 miles. Many of those miles are with luggage. The tires would have been good for many more miles if I could have ridden them on the sides only

Major hyjack alert

Sorry but I like to talk about tires.
I'm working for a rental place lately.
We sent out a bunch of bikes last month for a 2500 mile trip through the very hot parts.
The VFR, the Connni14 and the ST1300 had Road Attacks. Two up with lots of luggage and the tires were looking a little flat in the middle already with a ridge to get up and wiggle on in a corner. The even heavier bikes had Marathons and they still looked like new. Gold Wings, K1200LT.

A friend is using a Bridgestone Battle Wing on the rear of his DL1000 and he swears he gets 8,000+ miles. The RoadAttack on the front of my bike looks like it will last through another 6,000 miles. Tourance is another good choice. One thing I like about the RoadAttack is how well it handles wet, dry, cold or hot.
