SouthWestMoto Tires is History

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.

Seems like the site is still up and selling tires. Happy for Blaine in his retirement, and I hope the new buyer changes absolutely nothing about Blaine's great prices and top-notch customer service.
