We planning either a clockwise loop, UK, Latvia, Russia, Mongolia, China, Kryg, Kaza, Russia, Ukraine, UK,

Either way.

Space for a Land Cruiser?

Gra.
Honestly, no idea on space right now. Live in a shared house now, so no...but planning on moving in a few months...so who knows. PM me when you know details.

If you don't mind to look it up would be appreciated. Infos are always good. We where thinking of getting some TKC 80 from Korea (thats where they are fabricated anyway). Our Uzbek neighbor is importing Matiz in big numbers from there. Heard good comments only about Heidenau. Have you hear of MITAS? I think they're Czech too. Nice pattern.

Never heard of Mitas, but looked them up and it looks like their MC Tires are just licensed continentals. The company I was talking to before was Yshop.cz - Pneumatiky. Someone in the owners family has been to K-Stan before. It looks like they only sell Pirelli and Metzler (same parent company I think). Pretty good pricing as I recall, especially if you buy in bulk. I think a friend and I have someone coming from Germany who can bring ours directly and skip the shipping...we'll see. If not, might be interested in going in with you on a shipment...just have to see what happens.

Hi. You said:I've found at least one company that might be willing to do a bulk shipment for a good price (I think it was Metzler Saharas that I was looking at). They were out of the Czech Republic, they seemed to have a good price and good exchange rate to CZ currency. I can look up their info if you want.

This would be very helpful. Thanks.
