Best online tire site?

Just wondering if there are any sites I've missed as I look for my summer tires.

Generally, the most price competitive I've found is www.biketiresdirect.com.

The knowledge base of these forums is amazing, thanks in advance.

All my recent tire purchases (other than an emergancy purchase of some 27"ers) have come from ProBikeKit. I've bought from biketiresdirect as well in the past and have good prices on some, but not other tires.

It depends on closeouts. For instance, Michelin Pro Race 2 tires are now being phased out. There might be a hot sale going on and then it dries up. If you go to probikekit or biketiresdirect, they might be out of it and then try fullcycles.com

I've found some great deals on ebay.

A pair of Michelin Carbon folders for $17; new (+ $6 shipping; such a deal!).

Even got the yellow stripe to match the princess's Orbea!

Like I posted last yr in the feedback section, biketiresdirect ships the fastest, has the most consistent pricing, has the freshest stock and even will take back boxed tires if you order the wrong size, etc.

Amazing customer service I received my return shipment right after (about 1-2 days) I sent the return back.

BikeTiresDirect usually has the best prices on tires, clothing, components, etc.
