I see you're listed as a dealer for Heidenau tires. Do you have any K60's in stock?

Hope you do well on your new venture.

Take care,

Greg

Well, he does cages too.

I can hook up with you pretty much anytime after 5PM this week, if that doesn't work I can check with Dan to see when he's available (usually during business hours most days).

I'm assuming this is for your WR250R, is that correct?

Heidenau doesn't make the exact size called for on the WR250R (80/100-21 front, 120/80-18 rear) closest they make is a 90/90-21 and 110/80-18, both of which we have in stock.

AKtracks,

As per Heidenau's German website they do make the following T- and S-rated sizes:

T-rated (118mph)
120/80 - 18 M/C 62 T
120/90 - 18 M/C 71 T

They also make the

S-rated (112mph)
4.10 - 18 60S
4.00 - 18 64S

which should be interchangeable with the 120s.


Can you get any of those?

Stephen,

Can you pass along the URL that your looking at for those? The US importer doesn't have those sizes listed in the K60 tread design, only the K65 and K36.

Also, as an update for anyone following this thread, Heidenau is still working out issues EU regulation changes governing the rubber compounds used in tires have suspending manufacturing of the K60. It appears they have it sorted out, except for the 150/70-17, which they're expecting to have test productions done at the end of the month.

See here:

http://www.reifenwerk-heidenau.de/mo...ofil=38&pic=48

It is the German website of Heidenau, the manufacturer. One can buy all sizes in Europe! Couldn't imagine why they wouldn't sell those to the US and Canada?

I'd stock the 120/90-18 M/C 71T, it has the higher load index and the higher speed rating. It is the size for the 1981-1987 R80G/S and it is a perfect tire for it! I don't know why the h*ll the US distributor would not import it.

Probably because they'd only sell 10 tires in that size per season in the US and Canada.

Barb: In speaking to the importer, that's pretty close to the case. Having not received previous requests for that size, he hasn't been stocking them.

StephenB: It sounds like you were already in touch with the importer as well, but if you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
