I have a new set of hubs and wheels and other goodies to build, and I can not find a rear MS3 110/90-19 Starcross Tire....nation wide back order.:banghead:
Any one have a tip on where a single tire can be had? I have tried every source I have including other brand is acceptable.

Try calling a cycle gear store store in Hayward, CA.

I was there yesterday and they had a couple of those tires. I know this because i was going to buy one. they will be able to mail it to you.

Good luck finding the tire!!!

I have been having trouble finding 140/80-18 S-12s. I heard that there was a huge recall on Michelin street bike tires so maybe they are concentrating on making those instead of the offroad tires...?

I was told they moved the factory across the waters! I have 3 left that I picked up from my sponsor. I just started running the Maxxis SI and it seems to be a really awesome tire.

Where did you find one at? I've got three backordered from three different vendors. When they finally do show up, I will be able to open my very own tire store. Rocky' site says backordered on the 110-90-19...

I called Cycle gear store in Ga...and had them locate. Tire was in store Tenn. I call Cycle Gear Web site sales and had them drop ship from the Tenn Store. Tire is more expensive from them, but I have to have it to build out my new wheels
