Default Cheap place to buy tyres in Doha

Mt R, in his first few jetlagged days, had a blow out on his tyre.

He fitted the spare but as yet been unable to find a cheap tyre place.

So, after he has sorted the plumber out, he can then sort the tyre out. I do not fancy walking miles and miles and miles if we have another puncture.

Anyone know best place?

Yeh I bet they fitted the naff tyre days before, knowing it would blow and you would fit with a nice new one.

Take him over a tyre in your luggage. Hey now here's a thought: you could take a few over and flog them

HEY! the engine, gearbox, exhaust were NOT my fault. Blame dumb Kiwi Co Colin Walker for engine and dumb Kiwi Te Rapa Motors for the rest ........... now I wonder WHY Colin Walker Autos are having a closing down sale??

What you been saying after I left?

New tyre needed real bad now. Spare is almost bare. Road surface hot hot hot hot and with all this braking to avoiding hitting the dumb drivers ... well rubber is worn thin.

Just need the bank loan first. QR825???? QR825 for a new tyre! Surely they are not as expensive as that surely???
