I'm having trouble finding them here in the lower 48. I'll try going straight to Avon. Thanks for the post back.

I get mine here https://www.petes-superbike.com/roadrid ... _3413.html

The cheapest prices you'll find and they'll ship to the US. With your high US $ they cost practically nothing.

130/80/18 https://www.petes-superbike.com/1308018 ... 35307.html
