Any members in Europe who would be willing to purchase this tire on my behalf, and mail to USA?

Dunlop Wintersport ROF 175/60/16

This particular size is no longer available in the USA, but I hear it is available overseas.

Hi Alex. I'm not sure that tyre will be easy to find here either. I've looked on some of the UK's largest suppliers and they are not listing it. I do have a contact in the business so I've left him a message to check and get back to me.

The only ones on UK eBay are these used ones...

I'll post back when I hear more and if I can find one I'm happy to get it for you.

How did you get on Alex? I can look for some other suppliers if that one doesn't work out.

Yikes!
I was hoping to ask for prices for an Austone myself as I dont really care about the Run Flat. Figured if shipping tires in from over there maybe slide in an Austone or 2?

If you can slide in 1 or 2 Austones for a decent price let me know. Looking at near $300 for a Run flat tough maybe not since I can already buy an Austone here in USA.

Wow, those aren't cheap are they? Are they really that good a tire for the money and the trouble? Don't yell at me I'm just asking. :waving:

...Are they really that good a tire for the money and the trouble?...
They make for an extremely smooth ride, but the thing I like most is that they are a RunOnFlat... which I find very comforting when out in the middle of nowhere.

If you're not already hooked on them, then I'm not going to push one on you.

Alex, I have no experience with the tire you speak of, but I did install a Yokohama Avid Envigor 195/55-16 Run Flat on mine. I just got back from NY state, 700 miles today alone (5000 in the past couple of weeks) and this tire gives a great ride. A couple of times I twisted the throttle to 95 MPH and it felt like it was gliding on air all the way.

I paid $180 dollars for mine from a local tire guy, Tire Rack also has them available for $171 plus shipping. Might be worth a try before spending the big $$.

For those of you who are installing your own tires, and have never installed a Run Flat, Be patient........ These things are stout! I can sit on this tire before it went on the rim and there was zero deflection in the side wall..........

Just one thing lads , make sure it is a SP3 winter sport , as here are other types of winter sports rof and they are directional and the thread pattern is different and are not good on a wing . So it has to be the SP3 model of the winter sport.here is a link to the tyre here in Ireland ,
