Goodday, I'm in the market for tyres for my Cubby. Where or from whom do I buy?

Hi Kat

firstly please tell us which cubby you fly? and where u are from.

Secondly i presume you have the 8 inch tractor tyres. these all have the zig zag patter.

the only tyres in know have the straight patter are the smaller 6 inch tyres

On the wall of your tyres it should show 800x6, or the ones referred to by Craig are the 600x6. Both fit onto the 6 inch rim. Try Speddicks for tyres.
