Closest size in 15 inch would be the 175/55-15 in the brand and type you ride, which is really low-profile.
Please walk to your outfit and read the tire size. If it actually says what you’re saying, (135/65-15) I’ll bring you a case of beer in your favorite brand. (Typing error?)
Done: 145/65R15 near enough? half case of beer? Leffe please
I don't think i missed the point, the grown availability of proper sidecar tires. i don't think mikepa especialy mentioned the availability of 165/80-15 would improve.
i would't search for old beetle or 2cv tires. there are several sizes of smart tires available: standard 135/70R15, 145/65R15, 175/??R15 and several special sizes for Brabus rims. These will give you a much better ride than these high flexibel tires.
if you realy want high, wide tires: look at VW transporter sizes.
EGT is in the planning for this year, we'll shake hands and drink a beer together
