    Awful. Wouldn't be legal on British roads, can't have wheels wider than bodywork.
    It looks like something you'd pull from a Christmas cracker.

    Tires don't look that bad (from a distance) for being 37 years old!

    Pretty sure they're tires resting in front of the regular tires. They're not actually bolted on the Mirage. Like I have here, my new rims, leaning against my Mirage:Name:  new rims.jpg

    Yeah considering the age they are amazing, not even dry rotted. This three wheeler has been garage kept its whole life I've had it 11yrs. They are really worn though in person in the direction they roll. If I turned them around they would be okay for a bit but I found new ones for only 40 so I'm doing just the rears. One loses air anyway.

    Yes.. but not at first glance maybe. I can see how it looks like you got monster truck tire duellies. Could be a case of forgetting your glasses.

    3 wheeler eh? Sorry to go on Pryme, but my friend is OBSESSED with those things.

    Those tires are in good shape, considering they're probably from 1985. I can see your 3 wheeler in the photo, a red one, right on.
