Midwest Motorsports has them for $96.00 of course then you have to pay shipping which I'm sure will bring it over $105, I get mine from a local distributor here in Alabama and the last ones I bought, I think were $96 or $97.

I have received numerous comments and telephone calls over the course of the last two months regarding the recent price increase in the I.M.C.A. G-60 tire. The topic seems to be a continued concern for many of our members and rightfully so. Let me start by saying the recent price increase had nothing to do with this organization. I.M.C.A. is not making one thin dime from this recent increase.
Race Tires America maintains the increase is due to increased production costs and the price hike was reduced from the initial four percent, to only two percent in 2005.
The suggested retail racer-price of the tire remains under $100, but when applicable taxes are applied, and any freight, it pushes a hundred dollar bill and in some areas is over that.
The price increase has led us, and many of our members, to wonder where we will be with the G-60 price next season, not to mention three, five or 10 years down the road.
For that reason, I.M.C.A. has considered opening up the tire rule in 2006 to other manufacturers, or a possible tire change altogether. We have opened our spec tire rule up for bid for the 2006-2008 racing seasons in all divisions and are currently taking bid proposals.
Look for more details in upcoming editions of Inside I.M.C.A

Whenever there is a monopoly on a part or rule, eventually the price(s) will go only where astronaughts have gone.

Okay. That said. Blind Barney I pay $90 per tire. IMCA American Racers. But that is when myself and at least one other racer friend buy "X" amount of tires. No shipping costs and a small break in price per tire. Looks like I should have bought more last year when I was thinking about it,...
