Smile New tyres in Penang (Heidenau?)

Dear All,

Anyone live in or know Penang well? Can you recommend where best to try for new tyres for my Tiger 800XC? I've been using Heidenau K60s and love them (they handle great on & off road), but not sure if I'll be able to order them in Malaysia (amazingly I have had 24,000km from the front and 14,000km from the rear, but they're down to the bare bones...)

I'm arriving there from Belawan around 1 Nov (via Mr Lim at Cakra Shipping).

Thanks!
