Its been on my mind for some time now, I need to order 4 new tires for my car, + a spare RIM and Tire! Each Rim weighs around 31 LBS (apprx 14 KG) and each tire weighs around 52 LBS (approx. 23 KG). The other major problem is that the cost of shipping is around 4 times more than the cost of the the items. The spare Rim costs 35 KD + (78 KD shipping), each tire will cost me around 225 USD x5 =1125 (Shipping costs approx. = 638 KWD) if using normal shipping via aramex i.e. way more than it would normally cost me :s ).
I’ve been told you can do another sort of shipping if its more than 40 KG, i’ll give them a call tomorrow to check. If any of you know where I can get Nittos here in Kuwait, please do let me know. I’ve checked a few places, including ORP and Summit, but they don’t have the size and type i want. I want Nittos due to the higher speed ratings on the tires (SR rating = 180 Km/h), all other similar tires (all terrain tires) have a max speed rating of 160 Km/h which isn’t what i’m looking for :D.
Facts and figures :
Tire Size i’m looking for : 305/60/R18
Total Weight of 5 tires : 23*5 = 115 KG
1 Moto Metal 18″ Rim : Weight = 14 KG
Total weight = 129 KG
I called Aramex today, gave them my number but they never called back :s .. Gotta wait till after the eid break I guess 😀
Happy holidays everyone!
