  Ok guys, I am not sure where to put this.  I am trying to get Izabelle's pedal tractor finished and am having trouble with getting the rite size tires, I have decided to go with dirt bike tires but cannot seem to get the rite size and after buying two sets I have decided to do  little more research before I spend another $80.

   I am looking for a tire around 23" in diameter, does anyone here have dirt bikes or know what size the tires run? what size rim I should be looking for or what size tire? even a make and model of bike with that size rim on it.  Most of the rims listed on e-bay are listed from whatever year make and model bike not by size and I am not getting much back from other sellers.  Any help would be awesome.

                 Pete

what i have found is one manufacture over another can be a differance of size. i would take it to a local tire shop and get their opinion of make is most suited to your needs. they are the experts and may suggest something your not even considering, good luck

Call the local dirt bike shop and explain the situation. If you want, you can say you're in planning stages.

   I tried the locale shop, the kid behind the counter thought I was kidding with him then when I asked to see the owner he said he was!!  It went down hill from there,  Maybe I will find another shop.
