12" tyre required

Postby stuart mills » Mon May 12, 2008 9:33 pm

Nearly completed my etrike but dont like the back tyre. I have a 12" wheel with a scooter tyre but would prefer a larger contact patch(flat tread type). Could do with being 110mm wide ideally. Does anyone know of such a tyre?

Unusual tyre there, what about a trailer tyre?

How about this one Stuart: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Mini-GT-Classic-145-70-R-12-145-70-12-Tyre-New_W0QQitemZ260237405607QQihZ016QQcategoryZ43122QQtcZphotoQQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
Just one concern though - with a bigger contact patch at the rear it won't be as easy to do tail slides on that hairpin at the bottom of your track.

Photos soon please!
