Online Tire stores that will ship to Canada???
« on: August 16, 2006, 10:18:14 AM »
Question to all Canadian Visionaries, ;D

Any of you guys buy tires online?  Ive found a bunch of bargain online stores but they dont ship to Canada.   I have a few local dealers that will sell, but I am looking for the best deal. ::) Any suggestions???

Thank you very much!!! ;D ;D ;D

It'll be hard to find a cheap tire and trust it on your bike at the same time...

Plus, most shops will not be super happy to install a tire you bought somewhere else.

My humble opinion: Shop around your area. If you find a good price, and the fellows look like they won't ding the rotor or damage the rim while installing the new tire, do business with them.

That's the one (and only) thing on my Vision that I actually spend money on.

Bought my last tires from
http://oldbikebarn.com/

The good part is they have both US and Canadian (Lachine, Que.) locations so any shhipment is free of border hassles.

The bad part is the only time I've seen good pricing from them is their sale between Christmas and New Years.
