Tyres, tyres, tyres...
Forgive me for bringing up this old topic again.
I am in Cape town preparing for a trans Africa up the East Coast on my 85' Tenere and i am really having trouble finding a good option for my rear tyre. I would love to get a Michelin Desert, but im told theyre not made in 18", i would not mind a T63, but Michelin SA is out of stock indefinately! The incredibly unhelpful salesman has said he may be able to get me a Pirelli ,im not familiar with these and i will have to pay for it before i see it. What i can get is a Continental TKC70 (or a TKC80 but only in 140/80/18, will this fit?). The TKC70 looks ok, but ive never heard of anyone using them.
I am soon to lose my sense of humour! Any advice will help.
