Do you have import authority within your country as these will be controlled items?

Legitimate vendors will need to see compliance and country specific registration data before they would even comment.

Any product that is ballistic/armour resistant is an internationally controlled article amongst legitimate traders.

Hello,

Have you found the requested tires?

Saul.

Excuse the pun, but I think he may well have been a "tyre kicker"

I gave him critical information which he should have already been aware of - so on that basis alone, if he had been issued with the approp importer credentials from his own country, then they would have also provided him with extra relevant information. (usually, to import any armoured articles or components, you also need a supporting letter from one of the Vendors) as part of the security and integrity checking process.

And, providing the proper credits, he could of course always enter correspondence with one of the manufacturers of such equipment (such as KMDB or AMCF) to obtain a vendor list if he doesn't have one - he should know that.

There is a world wide shortage of ballistic protected tyres at the present moment.

I would doubt that you'd be able to source supply in the current climate unless you have a long established track record - and you have a bona fide contract to deliver on. The problem is that some of the manufacturers are directly tendering for supply contracts - so if they have a whiff of the contract there is a strong possibility that they'll go for the bite.

The heavy plant and ballistic tyre shortage is projected to last for the next 5-10 years.

If you're serious then you can email me with brief details of volume, numbers of specialised sets, time frame and tyre spec ranges as I do deal in mil hardware provisioning. I will need to know which country its for as well, as Australian Govt regulations prohibit me from dealing with some countries.

But, you need to understand that nobody will do anything unless they see L'sOI, L'sOC and credentialed documents from a recognised and positioned International First Class Bank. There is a shipping penalty that is added up front and held as collateral in case deadlines aren't met etc..... Typically that charge is 10% of total shipment value for month and is based on any part of that calendar month and extends for 20 working days.

You will need deep pockets as prices are FOB and transport is at the buyers expense etc.... Heavy vehicle tyres are expensive items to transport as they're physically heavy as well.

If you're still interested, then the balls in your court.

The required tyres are: 340457 (13.0018 ).
It is not a bulletproof tyre. It's a tubeless tyre for the BTR-80 and the customer is Indonesia. We have supplied a list of spares for the above but we were unable to source the required tyres. These tyres are Russian made and we can't get a solid quote.

The tyre model number is KИ 80 H.

Currently, we need only 20 units but another order is behind the corner.
Any ideas?

I'm no longer contracting so my current employment position precludes me engaging in this kind of work anymore....

my response was in 2007.....
