19" tires

Postby sean » Mon Aug 20, 2018 8:43 am

After many yrs of collecting the missing and damaged pcs for my 52k ,the end is in sight.
Picked up a 19"rear kr wheel on ebay from dale and mark in n.c.
to match the 19 up front.
Now need a source for 19" tires for front and rear...
Quick search did not turn up much in the way of 19" rear tires suitable...
Any advice or direction?

Firestone repo's from Coker tire I put on my K's and CH's and balanced with Counteract balance beads worked great and looked oldschool with no ugly weights.

You can use the DUNLOP K70’s front or rear they look the part and are a fantastic road tire or the duro HF308 classic and that is a copy of the old PARELLI with a more aggressive pattern but very period. DUNLOP IS $100 PARELLI IS $60 and they are all on Ebay

The KR rear wheel was a spool hub with the early version allowing for a sprocket to be mounted to one side and the later version allowed for a sprocket to be mounted to either side. What are you going to use for a brake or are you building a brakeless dirttracker?

It has 43010-52 kr stamped on rim...
Same pn for k in my book.
It has same bolt pattern as on my spare 52 hub...i assume my 52 brake hub and sprocket pn 41018 52 will bolt right up...
The kr had a wider rim maybe is the differance.
