Need new tires, what would you suggest? For road please, not track. Also tire size or a website that you know of that sells them cheap, thanks.

Not sure where you are exactly in Ca but you should check out Cycle Gear. They have stores all over or you can check out there website at cyclegear.com

The tire size stock is a 120/65-17 and a 180/55-17 rear. You will have a bit of time finding that front so go with a 120/70-17 you won't notice the difference. I would recommend the new Michelin Pilot Powers.

Good Luck

For road use it all depends on your riding style, if you spend most of your time in a straight line then a more touring orientated tyre ( over 4000 miles from a rear tyre ) would be best i.e Bridgstone's 020 or Michelin's Pilot Road

For a good all round tyre ( around 4000 miles from a rear tyre ) then Bridgestone's 010, Michelin's Pilot Sport, Pirelli's Diablo ( standard compound ) Dunlop's 207 are all good

For fast road use ( not worried about getting more than 1500-2000 miles from a rear tyre ) then How about Bridgestones's 012ss or 014, Pirelli Diablo Corsa, Dunlop 208rr or Michelin Pilot Powers

What he said. I can't recommend that last part from what your post has originally said. Mainly because those higher performance tires have to be quite warm to be sticky, and can cause a rider a lot of issues if they aren't.
