Tire Search


I was told that I needed to change my rear tires and the front tires were fine, so I thought it would be a simple task to get that done. I have Continental ContactSport 2 as the rear tires, and they gave their measures to see if they have it at the dealership which they said they didn’t. Then I contacted the tire dealer in Kuwait and a few other shops, turns out they don’t have them either. I called up 5 shops and they all told me it would take 4 to 6 weeks to get any high speed tire, so I called a friend and ask him to look around as well. Then they told me the Michelins were available but my problem with that is that I don’t want to get tires that I’m not familiar with, they might be better, they most probably are, but I just wanted tires that I am used and know their limitations. The funny part that my rear tires were basicaly slicks when they took them out, they had almost nothing left.


After I was about to go to Michelins I got a call for a tire place just off of the 4th ring road, opposite Chevrolet. I went their and to my luck they had the same tires I had going for 146 KD a tire, but was negotiated down to 112 KD, and I’m sure they are making a huge margin from it. I’m just happy I found them, and when I was driving I feel that there is more traction available with the car.
