    Less expensive places to buy tires like Shwalbe Racing Ralph and Nobby Nic in GTA?

    Does anybody know any stores in Durham and GTA that stock Racing Ralph and Nobby Nic tires at lower prices than most stores? I know I can get stuff cheaper online, just wondering if there are good places to get tires locally and quicker if in stock. Worth checking anyways.

    If you are ever looking for a pair of Rocket Ron 29er EVO used twice, I will give you a deep discount.

    i doubt you'll find those tires available at most if not all LBS.
    I have ordered Ralphs through LBS (with a discount) once and had to wait about 2 weeks.
    From then on it's only online order - last time from CRC i had tires delivered in 3 days.
    Prices in both cases were roughly the same.

    Yeah, not surprised there aren't many stores that do stock em, but, just hoping a store or two does have some stock worth checking out.

    Silent Sports stocks both at a good price.

    CRC has never taken more than 7 days (usually 5) to ship anything and 50% of the time it comes in tax free. It's often half the time and price of the LBS. I have more tires in rotation than I thought I'd ever need lol.

    As stated above by FatRed, Silent Sports had some great tires when I was there a few weeks ago and the prices were $20 less than anywhere else local. They also had Louis Garneau shoes for $50 less than I paid on sale 2 weeks earlier. Doh!
