Launch wheels

After a cracking couple of days in the Solent this weekend, one of my launch wheels needs replacing as the hub of one has somehow broken.

I was thinking of replacing them anyway as they are inflatable and I feel non inflated ones would be better.

Can anyone recommend any decent replacements?

I do remember seeing someone post about some yellow puncture proof ones a while back if anyone knows of these.

Thanks

I remember they were available on Ebay.

Something like these guys use would be nice. (I am partial to the 19 inch variety, but they probably won't work on your legs, as they are wide.)

Hi

I've waxed lyrical in the past on this

The yellow puncture proof tyres are the ones you want, the hole for the shaft is 20mm

Regards

These are the kiddies.

Thanks for the link, 20 quid is pretty reasonable too! If they're the right size I shall order a pair.
