UL 450 tyres

Postby bpb100 » Mon Feb 18, 2019 8:00 pm

Hi All, I'm Interested in any recommendations on tyres and tubes for a UL 450. The existing main tyres are Vredestein 4.00-4 v20 and the front is Cheng Shin 3.00-4, all 4-ply. The existing ones seem to have done fine for a few years, although I've not located a supplier for the front one. I'd be interested in any recommendations and suppliers. I have had a look through the postings and realise that problems in the past have occurred with punctured tubes, and that tyres commonly in use are primarily for other applications, e.g. agricultural machines.
I am particularly interested in anyone who has had some years of service from their tyres/tubes without problems. Thanks for any advice.

Thanks, Duncan. Yes - it looks like a good place to buy from. Any specific manufacturers that you have used and would recommend?
