Can someone please recommend a supplier of buggy wheels to me. I am liking the look of some that appear in the calendar and am just considering having a look around to see what is available.

You're limited by the stud pattern and spacing although adapters are available with some varying views on here about safety.

I have used Northants Tyres before but loads of places do wheels. Just make sure you can get the right bolts

What wheels and what fitment have you got on now and what style do you fancy?

Thats just my problem really Manxdavid I haven't got a clue! These are on the front and I do like them but you know how it is when you've got too much time on your hands and start looking around!
I just fancied having a bit of a browse really.

Dave DND - Turned the page to March this morning and the wheels just caught my eye so I then had a quick look through the others. I also like the ones on the 2 buggies on the July page.
That is not to say I don't like any of the others mind! Like I say it just made me start looking.

Just a reminder.... It`s either this year or next at the latest that the MOT check will fail your buggy that has tyres fitted 10 years or older regardless of tread depth or overall visual condition. (I know a few folks , buggy and other home builds with old NOS tyres fitted).

That's only for the fronts of HGVs and PSVs plus mini bus tyres, from last month. It doesn't apply to cars.
