King Fox tires

Postby KevinC » Thu Jun 05, 2008 9:55 pm

I had a great Highlander ride with taildrgfun on Tuesday - has whipped my building to a frenzy.  In the post game wrap-up we discussed tires.  The King Fox tire looks like a pretty good alternative and sure works well on '2SC - I was wondering if anyone knows more about this tire and/or how to get them.  From a little time on a Kitfox forum I found out:

it uses an 8" wheel
there may be a substitute (Nankang N800) http://www.tiresunlimited.com/nankang_atv_tires.htm
the Kitfox guys seem to like them.

Anyone else know more?

thanks

Kevin

Kevin,
you are supposed to be out in the shop working on the bird, not on the computer and not out flying around with other guys.

get back in there and go to work.

I have struggled with the idea of different bigger tires, I do not know what additional capability they add.  

What did Taildrgrfun say about tires, and what is he using?
