brazil postal service
how good / reliable is the brazil post ? would you trust it with your tyres ?
I am starting my trip in suriname then go through french guyuana into brazil heading south taking in all the dirt roads of the amazon. i have heard the price of tyres in brazil is mad and the selection not so good .this leaves me with bringing my own tyres but i realy dont want to carry them. i was thinking if i carry them over the border then ship them from the first city to another city on route. how hard to arrange is this and how reliable ??
thanks kito

Is somehow reliable, but depending on the place you are expecting to receive the deliveries, you gonna have problem with delays, specially in the nearby of the Amazon jungle. Also the price for this will be extremely expensive and you gonna need to attach the invoice (in Portuguese) of the tires otherwise the Brazilian customs will confiscate your tires.
