Karoo 3 failure in Ensenada

had a Karoo 3 split about 1.5 inches. In Valle Trinidad now. Anywhere in Ensenada that can help? We had a tire place put a patch but the hole is too big and its showing a quarter inch gash still on the outside of the tire.

Any ideas?

I will probably be hard to find a suitable tire at the shops there they usually have small scooters, 125/250s or quads my guess your best bet would be get back to SD then head back down..

Since you are so close to mikes, can you contact anyone there and see if there's and old used tire you could slap on just to get you across the border? Good luck, be safe

Got a lift home.. Nice to have the DeLorme In Reach SE to message folks..

This is the road where the flat occurred. So weird. Super smooth and we couldnt find anything that could make the gash.. Had a plug kit and mini compressor but will be carrying tubes going forward..



Local guy in Valle Trinidad patched it but the gash was so wide I wasnt trusting it for the slab ride all the way back to Orange County without a tube.



The tire after the patch job.. this is it inflated.. it got me back to a hotel where I was able to get a ride home with friends that were pre running / surfing in Baja at the time..



My ride back to California in style.

Wow. The way it came apart right at the base of the lug is unusual. You might want to send pics to the folks at Metzeler.
