Discussion in 'Isetta (1955-1962)' started by bmw22mel, Mar 24, 2009.
Does anybody have a source for the 4.80 x 10 tires for the Isetta? (I know about Coker)
10 minutes of googling found me some things. Instead of searching for 4.80x10, try 480-10.
Allegiance tire has them. But they ain't cheap for such a tiny thing.
So does Performance Plus tires.
Isn't that a common trailer tire size?
Edit: OK; maybe not. Metric tires near that size (120-10, 130-10) seem to be around $40, though.
Thanks for the info; I came up with similar results...someone suggested wheelbarrow tires...
Ok, I know this is off topic, but nobody's avatar has given me the laugh that Mekihead's has - very funny pic, Meki!
Thanks, dude. I've had that pic for years. Even before that awesome lolcat phenomenon. I still giggle at it occasionally. I'm not a cat guy, I just like messing with them.
The ones I was seeing were being sold primarily for motorscooters or trailers. That would be for similar loading and speeds, so I would go with those before using a wheelbarrow tire.
+2 My eyes are watering over here!
Back on track:
make sure to browse the gallery
(btw, I do hope mel can find some tires...)
It's hilarious that one of the three reviews for these puppies is from someone who has used them on their 1962 Porsche.
Hemmings Motor News might have some vendor who handles strang sized tires.
Thanks y'all, we are probably going with the Kumhos. Tire Rack...who knew? (D'OH!)
