Just wanted to know if any of you have purchased tires through the US. I am looking at the Tourance which seems to be $100 less in the US.I noticed some online supplier don't ship tires to Canada. If anyone has info that would be great.

I will be installing my 3rd Tourance on the back of my Wee shortly. Only tire I will buy now, gets a good 16-20 thousand KM and performs well in all pavement situations.

I buy mine thru www.imotorcyclestore.com in the States. I live very close to the US, and have it sent there, then drive over and install it myself. That saves me gst/pst/duty. Shipping is free. 150.00 US.

MAW online sells the tourance for 135.00 but shipping isnt free, so probably works out about the same.

Cheers!

ps: the Tourance full list price in canada is 306.00, add the taxes and you can see there is quite a savings buying and picking up across the line.

Hey CYKZflyer,

You can have stuff shipped here if you are considering it.

Reasonable price to receive and hold your packages. Just over the bridge at Lewiston so its easy to get to. I've used them a few times.

I got a set of Tourance tires + installation + GST + PST for $450 out the door in Ottawa. Just the taxes are over $50 so the tires + install were less than $400.

Since I wouldn't do the install myself, and most shop around here charge $40-50/tire, my local tire price wasn't bad at all.

For what it's worth..

Thanks for the input guys.The best I can seem to do here in Toronto is $215.00 plus tax and install. Drives me crazy that the price in the US is $140.00.:???:
