Front Tire

Do any of you trike riders use a front tire different from the one's used on regular LTs? What mileage do you get on the front tire and rear tires?

Re: Front Tire

There is a rider with sidecar at he uses a different very wide and thick tire in the front.

Sorry I wish I could have helped a little more. But if you hang on and I meet him in Aug 4th monthly meet again, I will ask about his tires.

Re: Front Tire

Al I have now put on a Pilot Activ 130/17/70 rear tire in reverse on the front and it rides GREAT. You can do a search for Found best Front tire for Trike there you'll find the post that John Bass posted a number of years ago. I have over 10k on mine right now, and still looks new.
