Default Flat Tire!!! - New Tire Help

Ok Iv Only Been Riding This Bike For 3 Months And On A Long Ride With Some Buddies I Hit A Staple On The Road and My Tire Goes Flat Now I Need A New One..

What I Need Help On Is What Is A Good Price To Pay And Want Brand Should I Buy.

Right Now Its A: Dunlop 180/55 ZR17, Sportmax Radial D207.

On Ebay They Only Have 1 D208, Will That Work Or Should I Get A Hole New Set? Tomorrow My Dealership Is Open So I Will Also Get There Oppinion.. They Mostly Want Money Though Like When I Bought My Exhaust For 600 From Ebay Dealer Wanted 800 Without Tax ANd Tried To Tell Me That Ebay Is Garbage.......

Well Any Help Would Be Greatful

( I Have A Plug.. 2 Plugs In It And Its Holding Nicely But Had To Drive It On It Flat For About Half A Kilometer.. So I Really Don't Think I Should Drive On It Even Though Its Holding Air Nicely)

Cheers

Six year old tires should be discarded, e-Bay has great deals on tires. Get a new set. Find the brand you want, then just compare prices. Dunlops, Michellin, Pirelli, Bridgestone; all good tires.
