I think the tyre thread was deleted when Jow couldn't handle it and deleted the entire thread cause he's a big penis laper. As far as Dunlops are concerned we've have only 2 people in North America, and someone said Martin orders directly from England. Does anyone know the price from England to here.

Aaron,
I think it's like $30 a pair. It's no cheaper than getting them here in the US. It's just that you DO get them if you need them during race season, they are probably fresher, and they may sometimes have compounds not available here in the US.

they have something like 11 different compounds available over there. and im not kidding. i was told by a guy that tires are whats lost the most in shipping. apparently, ups has a warehouse outside of georgia i think that has a large section just full of new tires.


and you made me do it. there is contact info for the guy in canada on the skulls group, and uscra group i think. i was able to do the entire transaction with phil via email.

I hope they make a batch of the soft compound again... early 2002 was the last batch I think. Works great with a soft on the front and medium on the rear.

y'all know a site that lists the tires and compounds, so we can
see what's available?

Scott.... I'm seeing around $320 plus shipping.
You don't pay the VAT Tax you know.
Still the exchange rate is crap right now... about 1.83 dollars to the pound.

Like the old saying goes....how fast you wanna go/ how much money you got.
