I don't know about buying them in bulk but Speedmind tires are awesome! They are wrapped in plastic so the shelf life is..........well............very long.

i looked all over for doing the same thing - and i actually ended up going through my LHS - they gave me the best deal around $12/pair for Jaco 28mm foams - granted i bought 40 pair - but i knew i would be using them, so it saves me in the long run.

check with your LHS to see if they can doing something for you -

if not...www.allstarhobbies.com had some good prices - you will just need to actually give someone a call and let them know you want to place a large order.

"Just" in a box. The tires stay fresh unless exposed to light.

GQ offers a great deal on tires. The new compounds RED/TAN AND RED are just about the same as Dbl. Pink/Orange and Dbl. Pink. Click the link below. Ray
