Scwalbe Tyres:

I get mine from this gentleman called Andy who runs as he is right on my doorstep and is a top guy!! If it isn't on his website just call him and he'll do his best to sort you out!

Steel front Wheels:

Andy above ^^^^^ is trying to find me a sustainable stock of 12" front rims but untill then I've been using:

They always seam to have a few 12" steel front rims in stock in various colours around the £12 posted mark.

If I think of any more I'll add to the list!
