Tire Price Drop

I've noticed that Pirelli DRC's and Angel GT's have dropped about 10% this week. Is it a seasonal thing?

Re: Tire Price Drop

Is proportional to the bike cost, now at $50.000.- , joys of electroencephalogram graphics of economy in our country

But is impossible to compare prices between countries, there are so many variables, managed by so poor brained people...
