Default TriGlide Front Tire

Read a suggestion on another forum about the front tire on the TriGlide. It was suggested that since the trikes are not leaned in turns, the need for a round profile tire is no more beneficial than using a car tire with it flat profile. Any thoughts on this?

Agree. Many of the goldwinger trikers buy a rear tire, which is bigger and put on the front, in reverse rotation.

I would put a run flat car tire on the front if there is one that would fit and not have to change the forks out.

I have close to 18,000 miles on the original tire, looks like it could go another 5,000 miles easy. I have a brand new original equipment front tire in the basement waiting to be installed when needed.
