Default Re: Road legal tyres

The rim diameter for those tires is different than that of a 26" bicycle wheel. Although I have seen some DOT (Dept. of Transportation here in the US) labeled tires that were on a Giant LaFree electric bike I have never been able to find them anywhere or anything else comparable. I have asked a friend that makes tires in Taiwan about this and as with anything else all it would take is time and money to get something made. Unfortunately more of both than I think any of us have on tap at this time. At some point this will become an issue however.
