I have an electric trike, being disabled. Looking to the future I will eventually need replacement tyres, but the tyres for my trike don't seem to exist on UK websites. I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but I can't believe that nobody is having the same problem, as similar tyres are shown on adverts for many new trikes.
Front Tyre
Kenda k1188-002
98-507 (24x4.0)
Rear Tyre
Kenda k1167-001
98-406 (20x4.0)
I'm not worried about brands, just about a replacement when these wear out.

Certainly look hard to come by ...

If you order well in advance the 20x4 is available on AliExpress

and a 24X4 from Italy at

(that shop seems to have lots of 24x4 tyres)

RIDEWILL in Italy have the Fat Tyres . I bought Choyang 20x4 in. Sand Tyres which have road treads as opposed to the Kenda ones with chunky pip treads . They were £19 plus postage and despite them saying that the package for the two would be the same as for one , they still charged postage for each . Order them before Brexit, as I was led to believe that they won`t send to the UK afterwards . Seems a bit daft as it`s still business .

These are all I have found in my previous searches. If I can't get them in the UK, the trike might have to be sold :(

I can't imagine somebody not sending to UK after Brexit; it sounds like scaremongering. We've left the EU, not the planet ;)

My Fat Tyre Lanarkshire Ebikes SR 20a has Kenda 20x4in. tyres . You could contact them to see if they keep them in stock . I think it would cost double to get them here . I would contact Ridewill with your requirement to find cost including carriage . I found dealing with them straightforward . It would be a shame to get rid of your Trike for the sake of a few tyres .
