18" tyres will be a bugger to find

Hi Stu9,

The "New" ( 2012 On ) Trophy has 17" wheels, but this Model is Shaft driven.

Your 1994 Trophy 3 model is Chain driven, and the 18"rear whel mounting is completely different,

Have a look at this UK web site : Moto-Tyres.co.uk

I Haven't used them for motorcycle tyres, but they are quite competetive for Car tyres.

If you scroll down to the "Search by motorbike" part of the Page and enter
Triumph / 750 - 900 / Trophy 900 / T300,
you will be provided with a list of available tyres from 4 different manufacturers :
AVON, BRIDGESTONE, METZELER and PIRELLI  :028:

Cheers  :821:
