Meet Ken Wahlster of 8 Ball Motorcycle Tires in Kearny Villa

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ken Wahlster.

Ken, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.

8 Ball Motorcycle Tires is changing the way riders think about motorcycle tires.

We believe that “traction is everything” and you’ll quickly find yourself connecting with our team on a personal level in order to tailor your tires to your machine and your requirements. We only do one thing… MOTORCYCLE TIRES… and our goal is to be the very best at what we do!

At 8 Ball we know that those two small contact patches on your motorcycle tires are probably the most critical part of your motorcycle’s performance and your riding experience. That’s why we are dedicated to changing the way motorcycle riders shop for motorcycle tires. We stock all the top brands and have the largest selection of the motorcycle tire sizes in San Diego. Our labor rates and tire prices are competitive with internet prices and our Price Match Guarantee will match any advertised price (local or internet) on any in stock tires. Stop in to see us on “Motorcycle Row” in the heart of San Diego. No appointment necessary.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I am happy to report it has been a relatively smooth road getting to where we are today. We’ve been open for 1 year and customers have been very receptive to the new concept and very happy with our service. It makes sense.. when people need tires for their cars, they don’t go back to the dealer. They go to Discount Tires, Big O or Costco. We are doing the same thing for the motorcycle industry. We provide competitive prices, fast service by knowledgeable staff and welcoming environment. Not rocket science… just good old fashioned customer service. Our customers have helped us make 8 Ball better over the first year and we look forward to many more to come (as well as several new locations opening soon).

Please tell us about 8 Ball Motorcycle Tires.

We believe that “traction is everything” and you’ll quickly find yourself connecting with our team on a personal level in order to tailor your tires to your machine and your requirements.
