Stationed Overseas and Need Tires?

#thinkingabouttires, but stationed overseas? We can help!

Having been stationed overseas myself, USMC, Okinawa, Japan (2005-2008), I understand the challenges when trying to purchase items from the United States. Here at Tire Rack, we can ship tires, wheels, brakes, suspension and other accessories to our service members and Department of Defense contractors who are stationed overseas with an FPO/APO address.

Because our database is based on vehicles sold in the United States, it is critical to understand what you need when searching our website. For tires, you can search by size to find the products you're looking for. Before making your purchase, take a look at "Sidewall Markings" to gain a better understanding of what tire suits your vehicle. When searching for wheels, you may need to research the similar vehicle in the States. For example, in Japan, a Mazda Miata is referred to as a Mazda Roadster. This vehicle is identical in all regards for chassis and most products directly translate. 

Service members in the Pacific will receive product from our McCarran, Nevada distribution center. Those in Europe will receive product from our New Castle, Delaware distribution facility. Shipping times vary as priority mail is between 10-14 business days transit time, while ground shipping can take up to 60 days.

We truly appreciate your service and sacrifice!

Hello, I am in the Kaiserslautern Military Community and our 2011 Toyota Sienna Limited just arrived. We have discovered that the tires need to be replaced, but no where in Europe do they carry the All Season version for the runflats. We would like assistance to buy these tires as soon as possible so we can get our car registered and start experiencing Europe. Thank you.

Thank you for the post. Because your vehicle is a stateside based vehicle, search by year, make, and model on our website to find what is available for your Sienna. We have all-season run-flat tires for your Sienna in stock, ready to ship.
