airhead O-rings

I don't have a dealer near me and have to mail order parts, so to avoid shipping costs and a wait I was wondering if there is a hardware store or automotive equivalent for the 2 small o-rings that go over the upper studs between the airhead cylinder and block.

The o rings are 11x2. I would stay away from the Chinese cheapos.

If you lived next door to a dealer, you'd be paying the cost of shipping parts to that dealer.

My local Bearing Supply (Applied Technology) charges me shipping if what I want is not available at that branch.
