I've bought my last two sets of E-07 Dakars for $295 shipped from moto-race off eBay.  My Yamaha dealer will mount and balance them for $30/ea if I bring the wheels to them.  Worth every penny on the Dakars to have dealer mount them, IMHO.

Best prices I have found, have bought several sets of motorcycle tires from them
http://www.americanmototire.com/catalog/

Doesn't look like they carry Mitas.  I got my recent E-07 Dakars from Twisted Throttle.  Manufactured early this year (make sure they aren't aged wherever you get them).  Others here are lucky, I'm being quoted $50-60 per tire off bike.  Planning to attempt my own mounting at this point when I get time.

I haven't bought a tire anywhere but on line for over five years.  Mostly, I buy from Rocky Mountain ATV; best prices I've found at any of the various on line retailers.  I change them myself, with a Motion Pro Bead Popper and a handful of Motion Pro tire irons.

I was just about to purchase my tires form Americanmototire.com till I realized they applied tax and shipping..  Gave Rocky Mountian a look and they had the tires even cheaper, plus not tax or shipping!!!  And its going to be here in two days!!  Can't beat that deal at all.  $260.76 to the door for front/rear Trail Attack 2's... This is actually my first time replacing the tires on my bike, they gave me about 8,000 long miles, but after my 4th puncher its time for new ones....   That staple actually went through all the way...  ::010::

So thanks for saving me some bucks with the Rocky Mountian site!!!

Extremely happy with the Shinko 804/805 combo. Just about to install my second set. Should be around the 6-7k mark on my rear. Front looks like it will go to 8-9k but so cheap that I just replace them in pairs though... I think $170 for a pair shipped.

I thought about getting some Shinko's, but while tires are tires I just could not pull the trigger on them.  I know a lot of people on the forum use them though.

You're welcome, Kabish.  I've had nothing but good customer experiences with Rocky Mountain ATV.  As an added benefit, they sell OEM parts for the S10.  I bought OEM brake pads from them not too long ago.
