RTW rider will be needing a tire in Costa Rica

Hey guys. I am posting this for a friend. Him and his wife are from the UK and are on a RTW trip and will be in Costa Rica in a week or so. He is on a Tenere 660 and "I'm looking for a 130/ 80/ 17 ether a Continental TKC80 or a Heidenau K60 Scout or Metzeler Karoo." He is headed to SA from there.
Any contact info on a shop or a place to recieve a tire would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Pura vida.

Dan

Safari Line in downtown San José (http://www.safari-line.com/index.php). Also La Moto AG (www.lamotoCR) in downtown area. Motos Indianápolis (http://www.grupoindianapolis.com/) in La Uruca. Motos Papillo (http://www.papillo.co.cr/) in Alajuela. All of those I've shopped and trust.
And, of course, the BMW Motorrad dealership where they charge you an arm and a leg for everything but do it with a big courteous smile. (www.motocicletasbmw.com)

Forgot one more: Motos Pazos (http://www.motospazos.com/) in Pavas

Hey Vargas and Wipe-out, thanks for the info! I am sending this to them now. I might call ahead and make sure its in stock. Looks like they are in central Guatemala right now. Not sure what route they are taking. I gave them the location to a few of my favorite areas in CR... Flamingo Beach, Arenal, etc. Thanks friends!
