Shinko 705 buy?

I don't remember where I bought mine from last time, but I'm about due for a new rear. I remember the price was good and they shipped for free. Anyone have any two cents on where to buy?
Figured I'd throw it out here while I spent my last 30 min at work "window shopping'.
Cheers.

They charge a flat rate of $7.95 for shipping, one or ten tires.

Thanks.
I thought that's where I might have ordered from last time, but I thought I remember the shipping for free and I thought a better price.
I think the best I've found so far shipped is amazon at $81 bucks.
Typically, I'd just order from whatever, but I'm being cheep for the next couple weeks. Saving up for a new Sig since the Taurus I bought is made of saltines (sorry, venting), plus daughter decided she needed a cavity filled.

My heart goes out to you about the Taurus. 709 slim?

I actually like my Slim.. I sold my LCP to get it..

And I'm looking foward to the thoughs on the 705.. I know more and more people are using them.. My eyes and ears are always open to an inexpensive, long lasting, decent gravel tire..

My Mil Pro is having a 25-30% FTF rate. It's going back. I'm picking up a Sig p229 which is what I wanted in the first place, but I got cheap. I love Sigs. I already have a Sig 5 series rifle. But back on topic

Paper, I have a post that I followed up on a couple days ago in regards to my 705 experience thus far. But for a quick review, I love the 705. http://www.klrforum.com/showthread.php?t=10035&page=3
