    I upgraded to this tire and am glad I did.

    I got 3 of that size from my local truck service co. (wiliams tire and auto) I' ll check on the brand but the treads were like snow tires not the straight line wheelbarrow type. was 22.00 installed ea.

    I couldn't find the michelin when I needed them replaced on my GTE. Bought Kenda, 6ply trailer tires (Load range C) thru amazon. Great tire, and got a great deal on 3 about $30 each. A little bit heavier than what was on it from AC but are wearing well.

    Tom,
    I don’t believe either of the manufacturers you mentioned make the 4.8 x 8 any longer. I found that size at Less Schwab Tires in my area. They are DOT rated trailer tires and are very sturdy. The cost was about $42.00 each including mounting and disposing of the old tires.

    I bought tires for the Tanarg at Summit Racing: straight tread, 6ply, highway rated, and under $40 each. Had to wait three weeks however. Bought two pairs in order to not have to wait again.

    Those look good and they're the first Michelin with 8" rims I've ever seen sold in America. I suppose they're a smidge narrower than the 4-4.80X8 that came standard on Cosmos trikes. Elija, is your racer a Cosmos or an AC?

    It was AC, John

    I will sugest TSO'd aircraft tires, any aircraft supply co has them in all price ranges. Most if not all tundra/golf cart/lawn tractor/etc type tires are not approved for aircraft of any type. (check with the manuf.) I had a lot of tire problems punctures/leaks and so on. Replaced them with aviation tires and have had no problems at all. I will never go back to lawn/turf type tires.
