I do know someone with that kind of money but whether he would do it is a different story. Wonder what that would cost? I’m sure they could make a mold from the size or even the tire it’s self.

probably a silly question but if one had a 2009/2010 wolf and couldn't get tires, couldn't they just change the wheels to a more standard size?

In case of Wolf you need a modification, Donna and Derik have the solution. So the answer is yes.

Even if the mold is just 100k and you need to order few 100 tires, you also have to consider the cost of getting them road legal.
“Tire making is expensive. You need not only the molds, but D.O.T. certification here in the USA. The tires must be tested to meet federal specs before they can be imported (if made overseas) or sold here. “
If you manage to sell shitty illegal tires made by a dude in India and someone dies in an accident caused by crappy tire your friend ain’t wealthy anymore...

I’m sure his 50 attorneys, I’ve heard he has would probably inform him about that. He owns a wolf (among several dozens of other bikes and cars) but one of his guys caught wind of the tire situation way back and bought a couple. He won’t give them up. If there was money to be made from getting these tire reproduced then I’m sure he might go for it.

You could make an “off road” or show tire.

Drag slicks, or auto cross tires for example are not DOT approved.

Well, if he affords 50 attorneys he could easily throw a few mil for tires... btw over 10 years old tire is not worth a shit...

One of the main problems with this whole thing is, how many wolfs are left out there and wolfs were roughly the only bikes using these tires. So if there is 50 bikes left and you need tires for all 50 this year and you need to purchase 1000 tires to meet a minimum, then chances are you would still have the same tires still available for 20 years and rotting away. This is what they call a bad investment even if you do have a lot of money. Just buy the replacement/change kit that Derek, Donna and Eric offer, it is a whole lot less of a problem.

this way you avoid a situation of spending $1,000 on a tire, catch a nail/screw a few miles later, then have to search for and spend another $1,000
