Tyres for an Ariel 3

Postby CylvaBirch » Tue May 15, 2018 8:27 am

I have an 83 year old friend who has no internet abilities. He is renovating an Ariel 3 and has asked me to try to find a source of tyres?
Can anyone help with sizing and sources please?
David.

What size it is 14"? Maybe there are some scooter ones to look for.
