Thats the problem Iwas having. All I could find were Street tires..I've been playing with old VW's for years now.And that size in a snow tire is hard to find..After that Hakkapta (probally spelled wrong) separated on the way to the
MOA nationals it was either trailer it home or find a tire.Which I duid it was used,but got me home..I put a new NangKang tire on which is suppose to be an all season tire...But if you find a snoe rated that will take the summer roads I'd be interested...Putting together a spare pusher tire don't want to get stuck agin...

Dave,
Premier always has them in stock but I get the same price from my local independant shop and I would rather support the local guy. Besides I don't have to mess with shipping and he installs it for free since I order it through him and I just bring him the wheel.

Glad you got a tire, you will like the Vredestein.

Thanks a lot!

At this time I haven't tried it my self, but I see many dual sport bikes running knobs on both ends and they seem to be having no problems even at hwy speeds.

I just ordered them last night and got the call back from them today. They will not be making these tires anymore due to low sales. I asked if that meant in the EU or just the US. I was told it was both. They are being replaced with an all weather tread...

Well, son of a motherless goat!

You can also try Dune Buggy shops: http://www.mooreparts.com/store/cate...ckey-Thompson/

They have some real interesting tires in Volkswagen sizes:

Hot Dang!!! They have 51 Snow + tires in stock!!! Now a few less than that!!

I don't know the birth date on the tires, but I'm willing to take the chance. Remember, Safety Third!







Ok, I'll ask him when he calls back with the shipping quote...

I knew Premier had plenty because I asked my local guy and that is where he gets his.

Glad you got a few and I'll bet they are fairly fresh since they came in this year. I bought the last one they had last year for Elmer, or was that two years ago?
