Any place in BC Canada to get tires cheaply

While I know motorcycle tires are expensive everywhere. In my home province of BC they seem outrageously pricey compared to say the USA.

Has anyone found a good place to buy tires in BC where I can save a little cash, over the usual gouging I take at any dealers in the okanagan.

Where are you in BC and what kind of tires do you want?

Falling down is your bodies way of saying you just screwed up.

Armstrong BC, and I like Pirelli, and Michelins.

Time alone with ones thoughts, is quality time.

They say there is a lack of jobs. Seems here to be more a lack of people willing to work hard, and take pride in the work they do.

If you end up calling Bill you might want to be a little more specific on tire choice. Oh yeah, tell him I sent you.

Free shipping in Canada. No provincial sales tax outside Ontario.

Michelin's new Power Pure sport tire with Light Tire Technology offers exceptional performance, and is reasonably priced.

I liked the price of the Conti motions from Gnarly Parts and Accessories, in B.C. about 290 for the set. But if your in a hurry you may want to tell them such when you order. I ordered mine around Oct. 20 and received an e-mail today saying they have just been shipped. My tires are still okay so don't mind the little delay! Plus the bike is up for the winter.

Thanks.

Bluestreak is by far the cheapest place I can order new tires from.
Will place order next week for 4 new tires.

Garage
Western Power Sports have a once per year tire sale in Feb / March with all tires at 40% off list

That is where I got my Pirelli Angels last year at about equal to US prices

Contact me by PM with your email address and I can send you the spreadsheet with comparative prices

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.
