    Default Where to Buy Bridgestone (or any brand) Rain Tires?

    Been searching around for Bridgestone rain tires on the internet but none of the major retailers sell them it seems (STG, Revzilla, etc.). Is there some reason these places don't carry them? I've found Pirelli rains here and there but not in the sizes I need. Anyone know a reputable place that sells Bridgestone rains (or really any brand besides Pirelli)?

    I want to buy a set for my Z1k so I can set it up for my rainy track day bike since it already has a bunch of crash protection bits on it. It takes a 120/190 front/rear on it but I think a 120/180 would work...not sure what that translates to in terms of rain tires sizes.

    I herd Perelli tires don't work when you're on the lawn so I can see why Gabe wouldn't listen to 90% of the forum that has steered him wrong in every thread he's ever posted.
    -Gabe, is a racist.

    Just like that hitch I should've installed myself that ended up being a huge pain in the ass and that SV I should've bought instead of my FZR which I now love and trailering two bikes with my car that was "totally going to be fine" which ended up destroying the rear tires.

    I'll stick with bridgestones for now When the time comes and I want to pay too much for tires, I know what brand to buy
