Tyre availability in India

Hi there,

A friend of mine is on his way to India and wanted to know or he can get tyres in India somewhere? Any ideas? He needs front 90-90-21 and rear 130-80-17.
Hope to hear from you.
Thank you.

Cheers, Bossit. :-)

Hi.

A friend has a contact for those size tyres in New Delhi if that's of any use. Not European makes, but useable.

PM me if it's close to your friend's route.
