Affordable tyres (can you believe it!) in costa rica
While wandering around San Hose looking for a curry restaurant (which turned out to be on the other side of the city!) we came across Autoruespuestos Cheng.
Although primarily a car parts outlet the shop is divided neatly in two for both cars and bikes. We managed to pick up a couple of rear Pirelli MT60s (130-80 17") for only £68 each, including 10% off for buying two!
We had previously heard of horror stories of $200-$300 a tyre, in Panama City we recently met a Swiss rider who spent a whopping $800 on two heidenau k60 in Costa Rica! Ouch!
Anyway, its worth giving these guys a try they looked well stocked with brake pads, filters, bits bobs and having 4 stores across the city meant one of their outlets probably has the missing item you are looking for.
