14" tire recommendation please,...

I'm looking for a 14"x2" tire. It's preferable with a street tread, and definitely needs some puncture protection (even though I'll be using Slime or Armor-Dilloz). I found some Schwalbe Big Apple's (14x2.0"), but they're not available in the USA. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Pardon my curiosity, but ordering from Europe is not an option for you?

(Possibly, European friends may order for you?)

I'm considering it. The price isn't too bad actually. If I purchased these in the USA (if they were even available) it would be at least triple the price PER TIRE!

Not available for me, unfortunately. Not even if I attempt to import.

I would try Vee Speedster if in need - but for sure they suffer the same limitations as every BMX tire, heavy, no protection, no rain skills. I ride Apples on my 14", but i would never recommend Schwalbe. Let's say they are the smallest possible catastrophe in that very size.

Total 51.98 ($65.72USD) - less expensive than if I'd ordered them in the USA. Order placed,...THANK YOU!!!
