Pretty much just the title. I've been looking at options for both my Miata and the ole' stock car and I'm curious where the rest of you fine folks like to shop.

There used to be a good article on that topic here, but it's missing now?

Found this old thread on the topic of used tires:

https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/grm/sources-for-used-slicks/153388/page1/

Checking USDRRT and eBay for used Spec Miata slicks will be the easy option for that car.

I haven't found the need to buy race tires, new or old, but let me ask around the office and see what they have to say.

We also touched on used race tires in a previous update for the LS-swapped 350Z: The trick for scoring fast, inexpensive race tires | Project LS-Swapped 350Z

Is John Berget tire still around?  Wisconsin, I think.

Yup; I used John Berget. You can also get new tires from them.

I use the aforementioned JB racing tire for used and my local place (Sierra Tire) for new

Yeah, we've been running BimmerWorld's leftovers recently, although they don't have Miata sizes. (I've asked.)

Check FB and CL and see if any one local is selling them. If not see if there is a local race shop or race prep shop. I used to get takes off Hoosier SM7s for $200-$300 a set that had 60% or more life left in them.  I tripped over the guy on Ebay and it turned out he was local.
