Michelin Desert Dealers

Hi Everybody,

I am in Mali and trying to get Michelin Desert tyres front and back fro my Tenere. Have tried all over Germany (on the net) but no luck. Does anyone have any idea where I may be able to get these in teh UK ? I will be in Europe in 2 weeks time and would be able to pick them up myself.

Regards,

Heye

Txs Chris, I have tried all over Germany, no success. Kevin from Bracken referred me to Wattling tyres (0208-6903366) and bingo. They'll ship them in a few days. Anyone need tyres, speak to Nick or Jon at Wattling.

Cheers,

Heye

Are you coming to Europe through Spain? I know a place in Almeria where you can pick em up after contacting Michelin Spain directly.
I don't have the phone numbers on me, but mail me direclty and I'll can give you more info. (I've put in on the HUBB some time ago but can't find it back)

If it would help you to get them in Belgium just let me know, I can arrange that they are waiting at my Honda Dealer when you come by.

PS: try the Michelin website based in France

www.michelin.fr

you can contact them via this link:

I got an answer of them within a couple of days with the info I needed. (needed a tire change in South Spain)
