Cheapest I found $171.85 at American Moto

https://www.americanmototire.com/street-cruiser-touring/avon-av91-cobra-chrome-120-70-21-68v-front-2120093-mc.html

My dealer has one in stock and will sell to me for $180 and after getting mounted it will save me almost $30 enough for one side of brake pads ;D

Thanks man!

I figure I go thru a set of tires each year, so I cheaped out on this first set of tires on the '08.  I got a Pirelli Diablo for the back.  It's pattern kind of looks like a Metzler, and the tread depth is no where near the Avon.  I bought a Shinko for the front...right around $100.  We'll see how they work.

Curious on how you like the Shinzo. Iím getting mixed reviews from people I ask about them.
