Hi All,

Just got a email from Cando. He tried to put this up himself. I am not sure of all the detials yet. PM me if you can help and I will contact his wife. I think best would be if someone had two 19.5 rims and tyres. Travelling in remote areas will make it hard to get them fitted etc.

Just tried to load message on the OKA Forum but it won't work for some reason.
I'm at Booraloola and I'm out of tyres.
Can you please put a request for help on the OKA forum for me? .

What I need
My brother inlaw is leaving Adelaide next few days heading to Darwin.
Can u ask if anyone in the Adelaide area has 2 x 19.5 tyres or complete tyre and rims either 19s or 16s to get me home.
Il be back in Adelaide mid august, can return then. Willing to pay / rent whatever.
I'm heading to the Hiway Inn tonight and should bethere mid am latest. ( if tyres last, best to travel at night to keep them cool) Il ring Bronwyn ( wife) in the morning to monitor the site.

Thanks
Jeff

We were in that area two weeks ago and passed three OKA south bound between the Southern lost City and Cape Crawford, one on the OKA's was Harry in 045, Harry mentioned that another OKA was up at the Roper Bar, Not sure it they are all in the area still. No Phone reception in most of that area.

regards, Chris.

OBJ,

I don't have any wheels but I have a few 19.5 tyres not currently in use.

2 retreads (old but still usable) which I don't need back or 2 almost new Toyo's for loan.

I'm in Adelaide but only for a few more days before heading out. I've emailed my contact details to you to pass on to Jeff.

Retreads, minor damage but still useable:

I have toyo 265/19.5 (with 20% thread) on rims, but in Albany WA.
If there is an easy way to get them to you, let me know. Your cost is just freight.

Thanks lobo,
I'm at the Hiway inn but mill phone available.
Have got the best of the tyres on and it seems not to be getting any worse at the moment.
I'm going to poke on in to Katherine and keep an eye on them.
Thanks for the offer David, will be in contact.

Thanks everyone for the offer of help.

I still havent spoken to Cando, howeve Hiway in is around 500kms from Darwin and a few hundred from Katherine.

So fingers crossed he will make it home....

OK Spoken to Cando, disater diverted it seems. He was in Katherine and with only about 300 odd KMS he should make it home to Darwin today.

Thanks once again to all.

Lets wait to see what Cando has to say about his trip.

Ok, back in Darwin with basically 3 tyres.
Thanks for the offers of assistance. David il have to try and catch up next I'm in Adelaide. Thanks also Hank for the offer.
The tyres on 112 are 2nd hand Hiway tyres with 19.5 rims purchased during the rebuild. Whilst they didn't let go on the black top they did on the rocks of the outback. In e end I was able to rotate them as they got worse, leaving the best for the last 900ks of black top.
See separate trip report.
I'm in then market for new tyres and maybe 16 in rims if any one has any idears.
