I honestly just wish i could find tires up here for something close to what i could get them for down south. Shipped up or purchased locally, it chaps my ass to pay double for rubber than i used to.
Looks like you're in FBKS so it might not help but Alaska Leather meets those requirements for me. I have bought tires from Barb at a better price than I could find anywhere on line even if they did ship them for free. They have somehow always had the gear I needed, in my size, and for on-line comparable pricing or better. I do go there during sales and movie night when they've got killer discounts. Besides all that, it's fun going there and they treat you like family

Riding as much as my old frame will allow!
