Where to get DS tyres

Hello all

Recently moved to BC, Canada from the UK and own a KTM SE. Have done a bit of online searching and these guys http://www.canadasmotorcycle.ca so far are the cheapest place to get dirt tyres for it. Before I go ahead and place my order I wondered if there is any secret, amazing, local place to get them that I have not heard of, either online or walk in off the street.

Many apologies if you are bored/sick and tyred () of threads on tyres. I know what I'm after, just looking for a good place to source them.

Many thanks all in advance!

You can check out Gnarly Parts http://www.gnarlyparts.ca/index.php?cPath=5978 located right there in BC, pretty reasonable prices also or you can try across the border shops online. Sometimes you can find a good deal on DS Tires at your local dealers if you phone around. All depends on what exactly your looking for and who has what in stock and how long it's been there.

I'm purchased gear and tires from all 3, good experiences with every one.

www.dualsportplus.com is also very good.

I was just in DSP today (well, yesterday) and they have a pretty good sale on TKC's and a lot of inventory.

Cheers - but I'm not a fan of TKC's. I'm after a 908 rear and Mt21. 908 rear isn't ideal but it will last the ride down and still be pretty darn good in everything except the worst mud.....if there is any I'll get though it somehow!

Hey a local!!! Haha!

It's in March - Easter week. I'll be riding down - it's the noob rally in DV - even though I'm not a noob it looks like gun and I'm signed up to the tricky rides. Another SE nearby - we should meet up sometime for a rip
