GDR Nostalgia on Wheels!

On our little camper, “QEK Junior”, we still have original “Pneumant” tires made in the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Unfortunately tomorrow we’ll change that.

The tire on the passenger side is totally worn out and has deep cracks, so Domi arranged an appointment with a local tire service station where we’ll get two new ones.

Instead of the original 155ers from 1985 we’ll get now 145ers by “Goodyear”. We’re speculating on less friction loss due slimmer tires. Maybe Herbie is a bit faster!

This tire change will be the first financial input on our GDR camper. We are really happy with the “QEK Junior”, because it is a almost maintenance-free vehicle.
