2013 Beemer Club Bulk Tire Order

by Bill Wallace

Once again I will be canvassing members for their interest in ordering tires for the upcoming riding season. For new members, this tire order has been an annual event for the past several years. It is really quite simple for a member to receive at least a 30% discount off retail, plus have the mounting and balancing free for each tire. The nice thing about it is: you do not have to install the tires at the time of purchase but rather you can wait have them installed when you wish at a later date, not a bad deal.

If you are interested please contact me at home 250.652.0214 or with brand and model of tire and the size information and I will be able to get a quote for you. There is no obligation to buy a tire if you are not satisfied with the price, however if you accept the quote the rest of the club members will expect you to honor the price as a collective group. We are buying tires as a group under quoted prices, if someone cancels then the price of the tires could be jeopardized.

All tires purchased in 2013 are fresh new tires directly from the factory. It makes sense to purchase tires this time of the year as you get this special deal for your Beemer. Whereas, if you wait till the summer to buy a tire at a higher price, you may have to wait for a tire shipment or have to accept another tire brand when your tire is destroyed by a nail. It's up to you on how you approach this, but eventually you will need tires.

I would like to get this tire order finalized, by February 14 at the latest as members are requiring these tires before February is out due to their ride south.
