    I know that Pirelli and Metzler have good suppliers here , also that Bridgestone seem to have wide distibution , but what other choices you may ask.....

    Michelin are available but distribution is patchy ,Pilot sport , pilot power and off road tyres available

    well Dunlop also have distribution here although it seems patchy, HD cruiser tyres are well catered for by Dunlop but some Roadsmarts, Sportsmarts and Qualifiers are around and they are very good tyres,

    Maxxis also seem to be getting more distribution they are not a bad general use tyre and as they are Korean will probably challenge the big boys technology soon .

    Some cruiser and chopper shops have stocks of AVON cruiser tyres due to AVON making large 200-300mm tyres for that market but AVON 's excellent other road and sport bike products are not available here .

    Continental dont seem to be available at all ????

    Please add any info you have to this list

    I'm looking for a Bridgestone BT090 150/60 VR18. My usual source in BKK, Mr. Pairoj (Ek Pai Boon) at Big Bendum, doesn't stock them anymore. Does anyone know who is the importer/distributer for Bridgestone bike tyres in BKK? Despite searching, I can't find them. Thanks!

    I treated my little mini beast to some new tires-those fantastic DeeStone 809s. Made right here in Thailand. And they're not hard; they are concrete :)

    Might give DeeStones a miss. When I bought em, I thought the guy mis pronounced Bridgestone. Boy was I wrong. Ha!
