Your Harley tires cost money to ship too. You are simply not seeing the cost because it is built in to the price of the tire.

There are fewer Model T's on the road than Harleys so you have to pay a bit more.

Here's the best deal that I know of:

The last time I checked, the only source for Wards Riverside was Lucas.

looks like snyders is the best deal at 152 each with about 50.00 for shipping.

Another alternative is to wait for a nearby swap meet that is attended by a vendor with tires and save the shipping.

If u buy them off a vendor at a swapmeet, then u have to pay sales tax. Can't win.

I know the sales tax rules vary by state, but if I recall correctly, I have never paid sales tax on items I purchased in advance and the vendor simply delivered to the swap meet.

Lang's Old Car Parts "drop-ships" tires direct from the manufacturer. _They use their buying power to ensure that Lang's customers receive only fresh rubber tires. _When I unwrap tires purchased from Lang's, the pungent stink of fresh rubber fills the room. _I believe they are now selling Wards Riversides.

Without naming names, I have a friend who is a professional restorer who lives driving distance from one of the tire companies. He sells me tires for his cost plus shipping. I asked once about picking them up from him while visiting and he said he would have to charge tax. It was about a wash. I opted to have them shipped. His supplier ships directly to me, charges him. He charges me and never sees the tires. That kind of thing doesn't usually happen to me, but I luck out on tires.

I got my full set of white Wards Riversides for Pete, my '12 through Langs, but they were drop shipped from Lucas. And oh yeh, they're not white anymore! And only two months old.

Check with Cokers in Chattanooga ,Tn. He sometimes has good deals on good tires when they have been in stock a while. I buy model A tires from him when I get firestones because the cost the same everywhere.. I did call on some 21s the other day and they were high. Be worth checking on. Tim
