WANTED- 5x4 pattern knobby, 4.50 or 5.00 x 18.
« on: January 26, 2019, 10:38:29 PM »
Hey Guy's, l'm trying to find out what vintage style motocross tyres are available? Something like a Pirelli Garacross in a 4.50 x 18, or Cheng Shin C755 in a 5.30 x 18.

Anyone got any ideas where l might purchase a new tyre from?

Best rear tyre l ever used, Trelleborg Tenmaster 4.50 x 18, on my '83 Hon CR500. l see overseas that there is a Mitas look-alike, l wonder if it's any good and if it is imported?

The Mitas will be the same as the Trelleborg, from memory they took them over 10 or so years ago
