Theres a place in Norwich(your pretty local right?) got some on the rims, he'll probably do them for £10-15 each i'd have thought with the rim or fitted to yours. Its C.W Cuff.

Why? 600kg load is the equivalent of a car with 5 fatties in it Smile I recently had 34 boxes of floor tiles at 25kg each in mine on car tyres affraid

Isn't it possible that an insurance company could refuse to pay out if you have 4-ply instead of 6-ply tyres fitted?

Yes the insurance can refuse to pay as vehicle is not road legal as the incorrect tyre is fitted same as fitting alloys with low profile tyres if you don't declare it as a modification, my brother in law and his wife both work(ed) for car insurance firms.

same goes for bikes.. my bike has to have H rated tyres (400cc 130mph max), if i were to fit any other rated tyres, my insurance is void if i have an accident.

I think I got mine from ATS...

6 or 8 ply (cant remember which....I sold the wheels and tyres :p)...

but they worked out at just under £50 each fitted with new valves and balancing....
