Need DS tyres 90/90-R21, 150/80-R18, Puerto Montt

Hi Guys ...

I'll be in the Puerto Montt area in Chile for about a week, currently in Pucon, and heading south. I'm looking for good tyres. I need a front replacement now; the rear is still good for 2000km.

It's been a challenge finding good dual sport tyres in Argentina. Hopefully Chile will be easier. Anyone know here I can find a 90/90-R21 in Puerto Montt or surrounding areas. I'll be back in Argentina (Bariloche) in about a month.

Preferably, I'm looking something like a TKC80, Mitas E10, Karoo 3, or similar. In one month I'll be desperate and accept anything I can get, even a street tyre, so hopefully it doesn't come to that.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
