Road Legal Tyres for a Peel
« on: November 02, 2007, 07:38:02 PM »
What tyres are road legal for a Peel Trident or P50?  I know they have go kart tyres but none of the ones I've found are e marked.

I'll come clean with you all.  I'm going to build a microcar and like Peel, I'm going to use 5" go kart rims.  In order to pass the MSVA test I need to have properly marked tyres.

Cannot help re the tyres, but good luck building your car and let's see some pix as it comes along.
