Whats the catch on this tire "deal"

I recently realized that I'm gonna need new tires on my bike and being a broke college naturally im looking for the best deal, the best deal on a set of Michelin Pilot Power 2CTs. I amazon search everything and I found the rear for 128.58 and the front for 104.07. Every where else I've seen them for way more so I'm wondering is there something I'm missing between the lines. Has anybody out there ever bought these 2CTs from Amazon and if so what was your Experience?

Re: Whats the catch on this tire "deal"

2ct's are great for the streets, you'll get plenty of miles out of them! I had a set awhile ago and for the price point, grip, and wear, they're outstanding tires!

I'm sure our Vendors could get you deals on tires, but I doubt anything that would beat those prices from amazon. I'd look into where they're coming from, what company, and do a little research before I purchased... If you feel there's a catch, maybe there is... Look into it...

RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.
