Tires suppliers

I am on my way to Alaska and would like to change my rear tire around Fort St John, BC. I am looking for a pilot rd 2 or 3. I should be there around the 18-19 of June. Whitehorse, YK would also be fine. Depending on cost I can change it earlier in Edmonton. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Re: Tires suppliers

I rode from Jasper to Fort St John and if you think your tire will need to be replaced in Fort St John do it in Edmonton. There is a lot of nothing between Edmonton and Fort St John not the kind of place you want to push a tire for one more day of service.

Re: Tires suppliers

A huge thank you to Gary for changing my rear tire and providing some great hospitality! Also for suggesting places to purchase. It was my first time changing a tire and a great learning curve!
It proves what a great bunch of people are on this site! I leave Fort St John in the morning as the Alaska adventure continues! 5,800 kms to here so far from Newfoundland.
