I've had great luck with Kenda K270 getting over 10,000 miles on every one if thats available. Here in Antigua i found three!!!
I read about your tire troubles, thanks for taking the time to post that info. It is why I had planned to pick up new rubber here in Texas. It never dawned on me I might have trouble finding a set of Anakees here in this great state. I mentioned my tire woes to a guy at the Salty Dog last night and he said "Somebody in Houston has those tires" He has to be right. I'll find a set.
No worries. I will find a set somewhere this week and get underway again. In the meantime I'm enjoying my stay in Port Aransas immensely.
