    I suggest the Bridgestone BT601SS in a 100/90-12". I suggest a Heavy Duty tube. I suggest using medical soap to mount it. You can get the soap at CVS/Eckerds/RiteAid....... You can get the tire from StickBoy Racing. Derek is a butthead but I like his wife....:Poke: You will have to put about 60-80 psi in the little tire to get it to seat properly. Let it sit over night if you can. Be careful and have fun. Let me know if I can help. Cam

    Thanks Cam! But what does medical soap do? I usually use dish soap.

    The white creamy medical soap seems to be the best thing I have tried. I have probably mounted 1000 12" tires..... I bought a 5'x8' enclosed trailer at one time just to store 12" race tires....

    ..... and my sister, and my aunt, and my cousin....... and my wife is a MLT in the lab at the hospital..... I don't mind crashing..... lots of professionals to fix me up. :D
