I would love to be host to you and your friend in October. Let me know whatever you finalize.
Regarding the tires, there are a number of ways you can have a pair in Pakistan:
1. If, you're ok with using tires dated '07 or previous, then those can be arranged, with little or no problem. May cost you between 50 to 100$ per tire , depending upon the health of the tire or the seller's discreation.
2. If you're looking forward for a new set of tires of either '10 or newer manufacturing, then those will need to be imported, which may cost alot, depending upon how you would be able to arrange for that.
3. If you have a friend travelling this way, you can choose to send them over and i'll be happy to store them for you till you come here. This would be most cost effective way for anyone looking for fresh tires upon arrival.
4. We can get them delivered to Pakistan through our countrymen working in Suzuki dubai showrooms. But expect them to be near the expensive end of the rates since Dubai is generally expensive.
For importing a fresh tire, you'll neeed to factor in the transportation cost on top of the tire cost. Carrying a set of tires might just be too much when you're travelling two up. however, you can also buy a set in turkey.
