Thanks.
I saw it was a 14, so not much use to most of us over here. There's not a huge call for winter tread either .

I've failed the 'remember to record the tyre details' test a few times too. such is life.

Iemller Cross 3. 155/15 (covered) on all three wheels:

Rear view:



Front view:



Side view:



Continental TS 760 Wintercontact 145/65-15 on all four wheels: Front view:



Same tires with snowchains on three wheels. In this case the spare is a 135/70-15 Champiro GT Radial snowtire:




And an overall view of the tires I use nowadays, all on the same 15 inch car rims (got 11 of them), with in the middle the Continental Ecocontact 1 145/65-15:



145/15 Firestone with innertube, only on the rear:



165/65-14 Pirelli Snowcontrol on all three wheels (preferred them above the Michelins):







On older sidecars with car tires I used to ride the Uniroyal Rallye in 125 and 145/15?, which was one of the standard sidecar tires at that time.

That is an amazing setup! Do you have any more pics or details on it? I like that shaft drive/CV combo, that is amazing! I bet it NEVER gets stuck!

You lost the bet. Everything can get stuck But when this gets stuck, you need horses (I hear somebody laughing now ) to get you out.
