With the warmer weather this last weekend I decided to see why the left rear tire needed air so often on my GT19. I found as I suspected that the rear tires have the same problem as the front two had last summer when I replaced them. I sprayed soap and water on the tires and found that the slow leaks were coming from the sidewalls. Where is the best place to purchase two new 23x10.50x12 tires? Locally they are $50 - $75 each which seems to be excessive. Any suggestions to save $$$ will be appreciated.

Sounds like a good price local. I have been looking for a pair of turfs and most online dealers are that or above.

A lot of guys go with tubes.
You should get years more out of the tires you have.
I think that's the way I'm going when the GT5000's leak finally annoys me to do something.

Tubes or a pair of used is going to be the only way to beat your local dealers price you posted.
