Does this seem right?

Pirelli Diablos
$129.99cdn/front
$193.99cdn/rear

I was quoted much more from other dealerships...just want to know if this is too good to be true.

I asked for the Diablos and M1's from MotoInter here in Montreal.
I got this:

Pirelli Diablos
$129.99cdn/front
$193.99cdn/rear

Metzeler M1's
$145.98/front
$218.99/rear

Are Metzelers supposed to be more expensive?
I thought the Pirellis were the slightly better tire.

Pirelli/Metzeler, can't really go wrong with either choice! As for the Pirelli's being the better tire..maybe, maybe not! If you asked 200 people this board that have actually ridden on both tires, you would probably get a 50/50 split on that question. I only ridden pirelli's on my old RZ back in the day so i cannot comment. As far as price goes...metzelers always do seem to come in a bit more pricey for some reason. Just remember that price is not always indicative of value or performance.

If you don't shop around, or wait too long, you'll get raped on tire prices in Ontario. I got some Dunlop 208s last winter at McBrides for $375/pair; this year I'm picking up 2 pairs for $325/pair in Montreal at MotoInternationale.

The locals only go down to around $440/pair - not enough volume to compete, I guess.
