Default 15x8x8 or 16x8x8 tire

Wanting to see if anyone knew of any tire is the size above.. I want a 8in wide tire and can go to 8.5 but that is the limit on a 8 or 6in rim. Either a click tire or a street type thread.

I cannot find them since I guess its an odd size, wanted to see if someone knew of any.

Interesting size. Closest I can find on eBay is this at 16x6.50-8 https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-PACK-16x6...V8nh:rk:9:pf:0

16" dia is tough..

Kenda K500 turf savers in 16x750 -8 (7.5" wide)
and 18x850-8

cheng shin (nicer tread IMHO) same sizes.. 7.5" wide for 16" dia and 8.5" wide for 18"

the only 8" wide I can see is 20" tall (Kenda K358 for example)

So yeah if it needs to be no taller than 16" search for 7.5" width
as it's the closest I know.

And search for "16 X 750 - 8" that yields the most results (at least for me) on google..
7.5 doesn't get me anywhere really

Jokes about german sausage are the wurst.
