Sourcing Kenda 18" red tyres in the UK

I bought a Haro Downtown 18" for my son for his birthday. One of the tyres is faulty, there's a tear in the sidewall. I called the dealer for a replacement and he said he can't get me one as you can only get the red tyres (Kenda Kontact K841 18x2.25) with a bike, you can't buy them separately. My son really wants the black bike/red tyre look so I thought I'd have a look myself as he'll need a new tyre or two eventually anyway but I literally can't find one anywhere in the UK. I know I could return the bike to the dealer and get the same bike from somewhere else but if I did that I'd still need to replace the tyres sooner or later.

Does anyone know where I can get one please, I feel bad for my son as he's got a shiny new BMX that he's not been able to ride it.

Thanks very much in advance.

They don't exist I'm afraid. Your best bet would be to contact the haro distributor moore and large, they might have a spare one from a bike they've had to strip. But that's about your only chance

There's a brand named "Duro" that makes an 18" tire in red of a 1.95" size.

The shade doesn't exactly match the Kenda, but if you can't find any Kontact tires, maybe this is the next best?
