Depends on th ebike and age - a lot more originaly came with treaded 'Tractor grip' or similar tread tires, than slicks, although the slick is often preferred for the look :) .
As long as it looks good, and big n littles, I just build em , lol.

The trikes in this build-off have got me to thinking, what if you put drift trike wheels on the back? Some fancy gearing would be needed to get the wheel speed up, but that might be worth it to do burn outs and doughnuts! :rockout::rockout::rockout:

Anyone have an idea what the run numbers were with the 346 tires volume wise? Anyone know a way to find out...
Wonder if tooling up for oversized oldschool wall styled slick is reasonable vs market.

:13: iam pretty sure that if they look right and sell for reasonably cheap lots of people would buy them , i know basic machined mold for mini skis are in the 5grands , i can imagine injection mold costing alot more , but what do i know.. after all if its slick and round , should not be that hard to machine , just takes huge round chunks of metal

The tooling is the easy part for me it's considering the production run cost to get jobbed. I was asking because those were not made inhouse was wondering what numbers would take to approach the project realistically. I'm sure for 2.75+up vintage looking slicks would so well juat clueless as what a run would cost.

making the mold in house is a great idea if possible ,but making a good rubber compound and having a injection moulding machine , i would leave it to a well established companie .. idk about numbers sry
