I'm sure all the Express owners here have wondered where to get good tires. The only ones I've found in the rather unusual size needed are Cheng Shins and Kendas. Neither are what you would call high quality.
But if you live in parts of Europe you can also get a set of Pirellis that'll fit. For reasons unknown to me Pirelli doesn't sell them to north america, nor will they do a special order of them. I've checked.
So I decided to look into having someone who lives in one of the countries Pirelli does sell them to ship some to me. I've found someone ready and willing, but there's one small problem. Cost.
A pair of Pirelli ML12s in the right size will cost about $80 by the time they get from Italy to Canada, and half that cost is shipping. The shipping price would stay about the same though if I were to order more than 2. So here I am, wondering if any other Express owners would like to pitch in some money to get a set of very good tires brought in. The more people who are interested, the cheaper the tires will get.
If you would be willing to pay for quality tires to replace your old, cracked, or simply cheap ones, let me know so I can work out if this is worth it.
