I was shocked to find out today that Mototireguy passed away last year. May he rest in peace.

Does anyone know if someone else has taken over the business? Last week, I sent an email to mototireguy@gmail.com asking about what tires to buy and got a response. At this point I was unaware that Robbie had passed away so I shipped some tires out to his shop's address. The tires were delivered and signed for, but since then I've been unable to get a reply from mototireguy@gmail.com and his phone number goes directly to voicemail.

Damn I was going to make a similar post last night. I’ve only had Robbie change my tires for the past 10 years. I’m not quite sure who to go to now...

The guy running the shop was a fella named Turk. He said he was the master tenant. When I last got my tires done by Robbie, he mentioned he had a business partner so I guess that must be Turk. Turk mentioned that Robbies family is considering what to do with the business, but I didnít press any further on that. Iím headed back tomorrow to get some q3ís mounted. Iíll try to figure out how much longer mototireguy is expected to be around.

Makes sense now why the show was or is being held in that lot.

Turk was cool to talk to. He told me about his days working on set building for the matrix 2 while he changed my tires out.
