Rib Tube Suppliers ?

Hi Guys I have been asked to source decent quality fair priced rib tubes by a friend so can anyone recommend me a suitable tube manufacturer for avon sr4s sr5.4s etc instead of spending the big bucks on the genuine article Regards Gary

Hi.

I'm sure either of the Rib.net guys in Dartmouth will do you a decent set of tubes at a fair price.

Not sure what 'handles' either Paul Tilley or Ed are using these days however.
I'm sure sombody will post them.

Nasher.

It might even be worth trying Avon - they've been promoting their retube business. There was a post on this a while back.

At least if you get a price from them you know the most you're going to pay!

Just my 0.02 but another vote for Paul Tilley from me. Excellent service - fair price - great quality product.

I also found Paul to be very communicative and helpful - even provided me with a photographic running commentary of the work in progress via email.

Couldn't ask for more
