Default Cheapest place to buy tires

Where is the cheapest place to buy pre-mounted 1/8 buggy tires? I'm mostly interested in Blockades and Gridirons. Looking for a specific place, not just "online" or "Ebay". Thanks.

I would probably say Amain.
proline premounts are $30.99 for blockades.
they have got some specials on the Tazer and BigBlox for $25 a pair - bigblox are very similar and maybe worth a try if you want to save a few $$.

Not to be an as$ but you can find really good prices on tires if you shop and search. On EBAY - I picked up Blockades for truggy in two compounds (MX and Soft) for 10 bucks a pair. I also found Buggy Blockades for (tires and foams) set of 4 for $25 shipped...

Sweep and VP Pro. Great tires and better pricing than the other "big" brands.

He only sells PL tire/compounds that are being discontinued (the reason why his tires prices are so cheap), if you find a tire you like from him make sure you stock up.
