    source for cheap folding tires

    Am looking for a place that sells popular tires (specifically 20" 406 for me, high pressure) at less than retail prices. Having gotten accustomed to Nashbar/Performance prices that usually end up with 50% off normal retail prices for road tires, would like to find a similar thing.

    Thanks,

    Well it is not Nashbar you want, I got a good price on 20 x 1.50 60 psi knobbies from them but that was all they had.Have you looked at Gaerlan?

    Yeah, I've looked there (Gaerlan). Seems like mostly MSRP for all tires.

    Perhaps just not enough demand in general for 30-50% off MSRP on 20" tires?

    well

    all good 20 inch tires ( high pressure, compound and such ) are as expensive to make as full size high performance tires.... BUT usually the demand is very much smaller......

    I started selling Schwalbe tires and specialize on 20 inch ( and 16 ) but again the demand is somewhat limited. No 50 % off here any time soon ... :-)

    Sometimes people are just facisnated that they even can find them.... like mango colored stelvios ... or the new 1.5 racers ( which will be in stock in 2 weeks ) ... no need to discount them ...

    Check out bike tires direct, they have several 20" HP tires at good discounts, including Kenda, Continental and Schwalbe.

    Last time I needed tires I used airbomb.com. I got Kendas with reflective sidewalls (406) in 1.35" for about 15 bucks. This code- TPM77- works on the website for 10%.

    That seems to be the best buy. Around 30-40% under MSRP.

    Thanks,
