Help - Need Canadian source for Nokians

We just got a good dump of snow (Saskatoon SK Canada) over the weekend & the forcast calls for snow right through to Friday! The snow on my deck is about a foot deep - deeper were it's drifted in.

The highs are predicted to be hovering just above/below the freezing mark, so we've got lots of ice covered with snow/slush. So much for easing into winter cycling!

I searched all the LBSs & nobody sells the Nokians. If they sell studded tires they typically stock the Innovas which, after reading posts here & elsewere, sound like junk.

So... I've been searching on-line for a Canadian source for 700c Nokian w106s. So far no luck.

Thanks for the quick reply. They don't list the 700c size though.

If you need something quicker, Schwalbes get a good recommendation. MEC now also sells them in 700cx38.
