Can't find these in SA. Does anyone know if the guys there would ship over here?
I have a rear trail tyre but nobody in this country stocks a front tyre that size for trails.
Also, how has everyone found these tyres off road?

I wouldn't recommend Distanzia tyres for off roading.

They are too soft and will tear up very easily.

Before I bought some new distanzia tyres I was offered some 2nd hand tyres from Keith but when I saw a picture of the tyre it had started to delaminate due to him taking it off road.

Thanks for the reply. This is becoming impossible, to find a intermediate tyre for that size

Those look really poked. I have a rear anakee, so maybe i should just try a front one and test it. It wont be too rough off roading just dirt roads, although that will probably get rougher as time passes. But i have no other options at the moment.
