Tire Trouble – Mongol Rally

mongolia car trouble

The locals and Dave try their best to help out...even the kids!

Mongolia is flat…and so are our tires.  A little photo essay on our tire changes…and there were many.  The roads in Mongolia are brutal on tires…especially when you start out with rear ones that are bald already!  I seemed to be bad luck on the tires as we only got flats when I was driving.  Coincidence?  Thanks to Dave who did all of our tire changing!
