    Default front tire for trike

    Is there a different style front tire for a trike of any kind? I heard somewhere that a trike does not need a front tire designed for a two wheeler but rather one designed for a trike. The idea is that a trike front wheel is more like a car tire and therefore needs a different design. I am beginning to believe that this is not true as i cannot find anything on the net. Your observations and experience would be greatly approciated.

    I had the Avon Chrome Trike tire put on my trike two years ago and I am very happy with it.
