Need Tire 190x50x17 for Hayabusa Asheville NC

NYC/NJ to Cherokee on Skyway, BRP Cherohala. Made it to Asheville tonight but one of our crew of 10 needs a back tire for his Hayabusa bad.

Down to the center threads we are just outside Asheville needing a tire and preferably mounting. Heading west to Cherokee for a day or two.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

PS - Asheville is happening. Wow.

worth a call at least but Waynesville Cycle is right off the parkway in Waynesville. May have your size and could mount it for you as well. I had to do the same thing years ago with a Hawk rear tire that was shot...

Check with Wheeler Performance on 129 in Robbinsville NC. He'll have it, most likely. He's right on your way to the Skyway and Deal's Gap.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

We ended up at Wheeler Performance who did a fantastic job on the tire with the issue. So good in fact that I got a new rear Shinko 705 with a front wheel balance and truing and Evil Bill got a new Pirelli Angel GT.

Tomorrow we're off to Tellico Pl. Half Sack and I (aka Wetsuit) are leaving early to do a figure eight of the dirt track out and paved Cherohala back to the Iron Horse lodge to pick up the rest of the crew after their breakfast. Then back to Tellico on the Cherohala again!
