[SIZE=12pt]Hey Guys![/SIZE]

Does anyone know where I can buy bigger cart tires?

I'm only pleasure drive, no showing, just driving on lawn & eventually well made trails.

Are there any other tires that can be used for it?

Thanks!


oh jeez guys, this is Bannerbrat, i forgot my Mom was logged in, sorry!

You can get cart wheels (whole wheel & tire) from Double Diamond tack. or if you have a local bike shop, that can make sure they are giving you the correct type of wheel, they may be able to help you. If you go to a bike shop, I would bring your origonal wheel with you so they can make sure you are getting the correct size hub (or what ever the center is called on a wheel, to make sure it will fit your axle.)

Cart tires aren't 'bike' tires. I wouldn't count on being able to find a tire that would be SAFE to use on a horse cart at a bike shop...Google 'Sun Products'; they are reported to be the supplier for several of the companies that make the tires that are used on miniature EE carts.

Ever throught about going with steel wheels ?

Mike Groose with Ite Bte Buggy will do them for you. He built a new axle for me so they would work with my cart and give me a wider wheel base.



I'm really pleased with the results. He could probably help with the other wheels too.

I have actually replaced the both wheels on a cart ( an old beat around cart) With very similar bike wheels and tires that were meant for rough terrain. It worked fine for a beater cart. I must add that they were wheels for I believe all terrain bikes, heavy duty, not wheels for a kiddie bike.

I'm not sure what to do right now.


I'm caught between how much i can afford
& how gorgeous a wooden easy entry is.


oh well we'll get it figured out.

When we needed new tires for an older cart we bought ours from Mr. Graber, of Graber Mfg., he is the one that also makes the carts. Very reasonable and easy to deal with.

I have the number at home, and will look it up for you this afternoon when I get home from work. He doesn't have a website and you can only do orders by phone or snail mail.
