That will be for your front tyre on an NTV.
Dont fit cheap tyres, they dont like it, had some on mine and it handled like a hippo on roller skates on ice!

If Keighley is close enough, I get my tyres from Appleyards. They are generally cheaper than online ones, and includes fitting. 5 ish for balancing.

And they get theirs from BFM in Saltaire (which now seem to be BCT!)

you should have bloody asked , there were 3 very worn just as bad as the front on the bike I sold to you tyres behind the car parked in the garage.


I put emphasis on were since I stuck them in a skip along with a ton of other junk I got rid of recently, a guy I know in leeds might sell you one wheel and all though , I'll try get in touch with him 25ish inc wheel.
