Where To Find Tires?

Postby Tylophone » Wed Dec 22, 2021 3:54 pm

I'm having a hell of a time finding somewhere that carries race compound tires for small bikes, such as my 250 Ducati. I need a set of 18" tires with 2.75 front and 3.00 rear widths. I'm aware Heidenau makes tires these sizes but I can't seem to find any shops that carry them.

Any suggestions?

I use these sizes on my Silverstone. I cannot remember who the distributor is for Canada but I did manage to get one (a rear I think) last fall for Shannonville, through my usual dealer in Ottawa. I was told this was the last one available at the time but usually, come the new year, they will be bringing in new stock. At least I hope they continue to stock these sizes for us lightweight riders otherwise I may have to import them from the UK.

Try Andrew @ Townmoto(VRRA Sponsor) and then fortnine for Heidenau. Any bike shop can order them, but as we've all experienced, the importer didn't do us any favors the last couple of years.
