Zipp 3Zero Moto Wheels from SRAM (in the flesh) - April 17, 2019, 12:58 p.m.

Why not support your local shop?  With online you have to spend a certain amount for free shipping, sizes/casing not available.

Maxxis are great tires but super pricey. The new Michelin Wild Enduros are worth looking at.... $80 retail.
