Hi

Looking at 5.10-17 Rear and 3.25-21 front, Tube Type in the Kenda.
Was going to have a set shipped to Tbilisi but the freight was more than the tyres then there is the unknowen customs Duty on top

Both brands are not available in Turkey or not in good conditions.
You can have it sent to your name by official post office not cargo or DHL.
you can receieve it anywhere in Turkey in your name without any problems within 20 days if;
1-you make proforma invoice less than 100 Euros
2-Delivery point
Your Name + PTT.postrestant + city name +Turkey
for eg. you can make city name Trabzon

All bikers do this way or use our club address and they pick their deliveries when they are in İstanbul.

For your information, in Georgia you will have to fill 12 forms at different 12 desks to get any parcel.

Or you can have Metzeler,Michelin,Pirelli,mitas,IRC. which we prefer here.

Wish you all the best.


5.10-17 hiç bize gelmedi.
Means never imported to Turkey yet.

3.25-21 kenda var, tarihleri 3 yıllık
Available but shell life is about 3 years.Not sure about stocking conditions.

Hi Mehmet

Thanks for the above info, looks like it will have to be the the Metzeler Enduro Sahara 3 or Mitas if available in Tube Tyres front 90/90-21 and rear 130/80-17 are these available in Turkey, would like to buy in Turkey than spend 3 /4 days trying to sort out customs etc after shipping from the UK.
