That is a very popular runflat, especially if your riding style is not extremely aggressive. If you ride very aggressively, the most popular runflat is the Yokohama AVID ENVigor ZP. Given where you live, I think the Alpin would work just fine.

BTW, where have you been? Thought you were coming to one of the recent Ride-Ins. Stopped by your house, but you weren't home. Talked with your son.

I also liked the Kumho Ectsa quite a bit http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/tires/kumho/size/viewProductDetail.do?ra=/tires/kumho/size/viewProductResults&fl=&pc=33729&ar=55&rd=16&cs=195

The Kumho gave me a firmer feeling ride when accelerating briskly out of a corner, the Alpin in the winter version gives me a bit of a squirm. Others have said the same thing, and said the squirm goes away after the tire has worn down the shoulders a bit. The Kumho however tends to track angled pavement a bit more than the Alpin.

But I would gladly use either tire again. Have an Alpin on the bike now, and a Kumho on the spare rim. Just my opinion. The first link answers your original question of where to get one.
