Default V710's Is tire rack really the only source

SO I need new r-compounds.

I hear kumho is coming out with new compound and other stuff but long story short, is there another place besides tirerack to order them. The 225/50/15's are up around 180 now. They have gone up about $20 per tire since last year.

The cheap place for Canadians to get them now is through Tirerack. That probably doesn't help you

edge racing does not carry them. And I am not getting used ones as I want to be competitive.

You sure a local dealer can't get them for you?

for about the same price, or a bit more. So with shipping it is a wash and i'd rather support tirerack since i've had excellent service from them and they support SCCA.

I'm just trying to be cheap like everyone else here lol
