sidecar tire

Post by Saintjude33 »



so my 86 Aspy came with what appears to be a California Sidecar Friendship III, early model. It's got a squishy tire, and I feel the need to change it, but I don't know what the appropriate tire to put on it would be. It came with a Dunlop 145R13 radial, but that's not an easy find. Anyone out there have a suggestion for a new shoe for it?

I run a 175 80 R 13 on my rig. does a nice job and isn't that hard to find,my car is a little different but about the same size as far as suspension
check at sidecar.com as there are more riders with cars there with experience of what tires work best

Isn't that a trailer tire? Not trying to challenge you, but it works ok?
