Mitas,
Facebook is just one of many place to market your tires. Why stick with one thing? That makes ZERO sense. We use all methods possible:

Maybe you should take note and work on getting these tires easily available in the US!


In fact, ADV is a MUCH better place to concentrate your efforts in those tires i've mentioned above, as ADV is filled with riders actively looking for better tires.

p.s. Thanks for posting those pictures. Now let's seem them mounted on bikes!

If the following sounds silly to you, please ignore it, it' s not my area of expertise, but I'll give it a shot because I need a better selection of tires, such as the E07/10. Maybe this could be a way to convince more dealers that your tires are worth selling. For example, sponsoring some riders/clubs/events/rallies/etc with tires, and showing that your tires are longer lasting, better grip, etc, might convince dealers that people who spend over $150 for a tire such as TKC/K60 would pay the same for your tires. In the end, initially, it all comes down to money given that the brand is not all that well known by most people in North-America.




good to know...
