Good source for Nitto NT01's?

After Thill this weekend I have definitely exceeded the limits of the old Toyo T1-S's on the car - a nice spin in turn 11 (on exit, due to excessive wheelspin when getting on the power), a lovely Novolari-inspired power drift under full power in 4th through the apex of turn 7, and zero front end bite for turns 14 and 15 all indicate these tires are done.

I played good tag with a gent driving a worked Audi 4wd S4 turbo wagon (meth injection and all the RS4 motor parts) driving on NT01's, and I think I'd like to give them a try. I just can't find a good source locally. Anyone got a good source for fair prices that will drop ship?

Discount Tire carries them for a cheap price, I got my NT05s through them.

I've found these guys:

Discount Tire doesn't carry this size, which I need to fit my rear 9.5" BBS rims. For the fronts (8.5", 235s), they charge a bit less than Discount Tire, so unless someone's got a better price source, this looks like the way to go:

Just FYI, but if you order the NT01s from Discount Tire, and submit the receipt, Speedventures will give you a rebate/discount per tire off one of their track days.

Check FAQ #21
