A friend of mine just brought me back the Harrod's Van from London, only it's missing the little black tire on the rear wheel! [Eek!] The rim is there, but the little fellow travelled all the way from the UK to the US without the tire! I'm not sure if Harrod's will be able to help, but I was wondering if any of you creative minds might have ideas on how I can find the replacement and just fix it myself? [Wink]

Go to the hardware stores and look for a rubber gasket . That is what EL used to make the tires.

Next time we are at the local Home Depot we will also look. We seem to spend alot of time there now that we are remodeling.

Hi all! Just wanted to let you know I got the tire repaired! Harrod's gave me a phone call and when I told them about the tire, they mailed me another and a spare! It easily slips right on, so all is well once again! Thanks for all of your suggestions! [Big Grin]
