Shocks &Tires

Any advice on the best place to buy shocks (O.E.M. / Ohlin / Wilber) & Tires (Bridgestone) in Canada? Specifically Ontario, G.T.A. region.
The dollar is good against the U.S. right now but shipping costs add up too.
Thanks all.

Re: Shocks &Tires

I know tires are about half the price in the US. If you are planning any trips to the US, I would order and have them shipped to the businesses in the border cities that cater to Canadians. Usually they charge around $5 per parcel to use their address. Shipping is quite often free from on-line vendors shipping in the States.

I imagine that there will be quite a savings on shocks as well.

Check out Pete's Superbike in Montreal. Excellent prices, shipping is $20.00 for two tires. Next day delivery.
