Welcome to the Forum from Kansas!!!

I hope you find the Forum as informative and as much fun as we do!!


I would use the same tire that was original when you got the trike.

Again, Welcome Aboard!!

Welcome to the forum from sunny Southern Calfiornia. I use an E3. Nothing really special. I use the same size.

The Michelin pilot activ 130/70-18 rear tire is a popular front tire for trikes. I have one on the front of my 2 wheel 1800 and love it, I'm on the second one now.

One BIG draw back about using the rear tire in the front ----- you want to go backwards a lot
