Question tyres needed


Actually I am in Udaipur, India. I need to organize new tyres for my motorbike BMW F650, model 1999. The tyres I need are:
Front tyre: 100/90 × 19 57s, for tube, street type,
Rear tyre: 130/80 × 17 65s, for tube, street type.

Does anybody knows were to get those tyres in India OR Nepal? I already emailed Navnit Motors in Mumbai. They kept me a week on the hook and finally replied with "Can you send us a picture of the tyres you actually use?" Well ...

Thanks for help,

Tobias, or by whatever alias you'll dream up next....

DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT POST ON THIS OR ANY OTHER THREAD UNTIL YOU'VE BEEN UNBANNED! Give me a minute or 2 (I just need to check the manual...) and I'll be able to ban your entire ip range. You have already been spoken to in private. Deal with it and express your grievance through the correct channels.

Moderators are unpaid and have better things to do with their time than playing cat and mouse with you.

Thanks for your understanding!
