3c2 tyres?

Post #1 by SiH » Sat Jul 15, 2017 8:13 pm

Hi all,
I've been offered some 16.5/85 r 28, 10 ply industrial tyres to replace the ropey ones on the back of my 3c2.
Good idea or not?
Cheers boys. :)

What type of tread pattern? It might depend on when and how you use the machine.

Dont know what you would call it but heres a pic- bugger all tread really so dont know if its worth bothering with them. Would the size be much of a hinderance? Smaller diameter OA isnt it than a standard 16.9 r 28?
Theres lots of these tyres, this size here in France,so thats why I'm thinking about fitting some.

I guess you are worried about clearance? The thread will not be brilliant on soft/wet ground on the other hand the more industrial tread often seems to fair better on hard or concrete. Are they cheap and reasonably damage free?
