The Kenda in question has a load rating of 853 lbs. Perhaps you've confused it with the 520 lbs rated generic tire that was simply something the China source mentioned out of the blue as a cheaper option.

Hey James
On 4-11 we received a email with a list of the "supposed"
product we will revived in the next container, in 6 weeks it said. I won't know what is really in it until it arrives here, the info I receive is always VERY poor :(

I'm patient. Tires are one of those things one always needs. Retro needed one this time, with it's insanely tight clearance with the driveshaft, these won't fit, so I'm good. M70 doesn't need tires quite yet...

Update
On 6-5 we revived another container without the tires :x WTH!!!

I had a talk with the Kingpin/boss on 6-6

We are apparently using two different China connections, Alice (OG china contact) and Ben (newest contact).
The tires are coming from Alice and the last few containers were from Ben :?

But the container from Alice (with the tire) is in the US and is suppose to arrive the end of this week or the first of the next.
It's Thursday 1:20 pm here and still no confirmation call from the trucking company yet,so it's looking like next week :boogie:

So we're finally close, and I'm ready too :)
I now have 3 complete 18' wheels ready and waiting :) so I can mount up some and check them out too 8)

More to come, next week :foilhead:

Hey M

Well tomorrow will be 2 weeks since my last post & I still don't know anymore now than then :x

There are only 5 people (Boss/kingpin - partner/sales manger - book keeper/The Pope - shipper/parts man - warehouse person/me)
involved in this side of the business.

The Boss runs a LARGE company across town, so he is out of the loop unless ask.

This week the Pope and sales manager called the parts man (Dallas) to see if he had heard anything about this container :lol:

WTH!!! :? Why would he know?
He sales motorcycle parts locally and online, he is shipping shop stuff so he takes care of the Mafi shipping for us
while is doing his stuff.

So no one knows anything, which is SOP for the sales manager and the Pope :loco:

But to be fair, when it hit the port there is still customs, rail to yard, and truck from yard to us :shock:
so there is a lot going on.
The Pope apparently paid some part of the freight, but she didn't know what part :shock: :lol: :cry:

So stay tuned to the days of my life and you will eventually see these tires on a Ural :lurker:
