17" Tires in Ouagadougou or Bamako

My rear tire (K60) is nicely spitting off chunks of rubber, I'm now in Ouaga and need a different tire.

If anyone knows of place to buy a new rear, or pick up an old leave behind here in Ouaga, please let me know.

I'll look around tomorrow, and if come up empty will consider making it to Bamako.

Any suggestions as to overlander type places in either city where leave behinds might be kicking about also much appreciated.

Happy New Ye

Sorry, don't have any suggestions (never been to W.Africa), but know that the HUbb search functon is close to useless. However, if you Google

site:horizonsunlimited.com tyres Ouagadougou

and

site:horizonsunlimited.com tyres Bamako

there are a few results that might be useful.

Good luck and Happy New Year
Chris

Thanks Chris. I did use google to search the site but your post reminded me that the spelling of the word tires is different in these parts. A new search with the proper spelling yielded more clues but no answers as of yet, thanks again.
