One of the very best and most popular motorcycle tire vendors, SouthWestMoto Tires, is no more. Blaine, the owner of SWM, sold the business and retired, reportedly to do a lot more riding. SWM sold exclusively online from its Tucson location, and was famous for cheap prices, free shipping on 2 or more, and extremely quick delivery. I've used SWM 4 or 5 times and couldn't have been happier. Blaine was able to deliver a special OEM-coded front BT-021 for my ZR-7S within 48 hours, and he didn't even stock it. SWM has been absorbed into OnAnyMoto
, also in Tucson. Early reports on OAM's service are encouraging (check this thread
on ADVRider for example); the new owner is apparently aware of the high expectations.
