All season tyres

I am going over to Turkey next week and returning in January 2015. Have tried without success to get all season tyres (ie M + S markings) but no tyre supplier has any in stock (unbelievable really). Does anyone know if they are available in Turkey as I will require them before returning via Austria and Germany.

Alternatively I could leave the car in Turkey from Jan- April but I am unsure whether I am able to do that or not. I currently have a 2 year residency permit which expires Nov 2015 and am aged 65+ - I recall that this may allow me to keep a car in Turkey longer than the norm -without having to put into customs etc?? Any info will be helpful.

Re: All season tyres

I bought Bridgestone all seasons here a couple of years ago from Lassa, I did have to wait a week or two for them to get them in though. There was a purge here some time ago but like using your phone whilst driving, taxi drivers smoking, drink driving, speeding and jumping red lights, there doesn't seem to be much enforsement.

thanks KK. My problem isnt Turkey so much as Germany and Austria who are very strict on tyres after the 31st October.

Have you tried the following.......

Tyres Online with Local Fitting - Blackcircles.com

or

etyres - tyre glossary - M+S

Failing that I would have thought you'd have no problem finding what you want driving down through Germany or Austria

If the problem is just Austria Frankfurterland, why don't you just avoid them both on your way back?

Re: All season tyres

We did this last year through Austria to Turkey and I fitted Hankook Optimo 4s tyres

Buy Hankook Optimo 4S H730 Tyres Online at Blackcircles.com

I found them good, low noise and grippy but never needed them for snow and ice, however they do satisfy the needs of the correct markings for the Austrian and German Police. I kept them on and they are great for rain.

been trying to get them for weeks now Bruce - even in Germany-without any luck. My size of tyre makes it more difficult - 195/50r/16
