Firstly appologies for coming into this forum on another users id , I am Simons girlfriend Sue.
Simon has just called from Morroco ,and asked me to post this thread , he is at this moment an hour west of Erfoud
with a friend and travelling companion that he met on here , Paul from London
They are both safe and well , and are staying the night with some friendly Berbers in their tent.They need of Tyres , apparently the tyres they have , are wearing at greater rate than anticipated.
Does anyone know of any tyres in southern Morroco.

Many thanks in advance

Hi Sue

If they travel on motorbikes try this mobile, from a guy who owns a garage in Zagora. I don't know if he has tyres, but maybe he can help them out.

Generally speaking tyres have to be ordered in from Cassablanca, however Wilderness Wheels in Ouarzazate have a stock of tyres for their own bikes, 250 and 400 Hondas.

Otherwise, go gently until southern Spain.
