I didn't see much in Syria, Allepo had some small bikes shops in the hotel district of town, only serving small bikes, mostly imported from China.

Turkey has dealers, etc. Not sure of availability outside of major centers of Istanbul/Ankara etc. One of our ever friendly Turkish members should be along shortly to answer that for you

hi there,i donot live in turkey, but i was in touch with these guys to procure off road tyres for my KTM adv. They deal in Continental,Metzeler,Pirelli,Bridgestone and Dunlop which covers most of the reputable bike tyre brands (assuming that you are indeed looking for motorcycle tyres).http://www.eris.com.tr/best of luck

You don't say what kind of tyres.... car, 4X4, road bike , off road bike ..... uni-cycle or what ???

If it's a car or 4x4 you'll have no problem . If its a bike and it's over 125cc you'll have big problems in Syria because the only large capacity bikes are ridden by the police.

Motorbike tyres

To Vicky thankyou for your reply thats good information and to Gecko, yes motorbike tyres.

Horizons Unlimited is a Motorbike Website, so naturally I thought everyone was talking motorbikes first off, although have seen other modes of transport on here... Unicycle.. funny !!

G'day! Got new tyres last week in Antalya, south coast of Turkiye. No problem. As you come into the city yuo will see all the car dealerships on the right side. There is a man in the service dept. at the BMW shop who speaks english and will send you to the tyre shop. Easy.
Good traveling for you!! Bootlace.
