    NEW Track grip tyres, British WW2

    Hi, Sorry i have been meaning to post an update There was a problem with the first test mould so it has been modified and the second test batch turned out great. obviously this has delayed the tyres a bit though. we are now hoping to do the production tyre imminently and get them on there way. its taken longer than hoped as well but unfortunately with a project like this it cant be helped. As soon as we have an update on shipping i will let you all know.
  2. Hi all There is a number of us from the Portsmouth area that are planning on heading over to OMG 2019 (not registered yet) with our vehicles. just wondering if there's any convoys from the UK heading over that we can try and meet up with? will probably travel via Dover. Cheers Baz

    We haven't got a final price yet as we still have the shipping customs etc to sort. The aim is for them to be a similar price to 900x16 bar grips on the market. we haven't gone further with Dingo tyres yet, once the 900's are in we can start looking at the next sizes.

    Hi All Quick update on the tyres project. we are moving ahead with the 900x16 tyres. Two different ply ratings 8 and 14 for different uses i.e Bedford MW or Daimler ferret etc. we're hoping to have delivery of the first batch by the end of year. once the 900's are here we will commence with the next size, most likely 10.50x16 due to interest levels. does anybody have a 7.00x18 we could borrow as sample?

    Bedford ox chassis number

    i just checked on mine, its 12 inches behind the back of the cab, outer side of passenger chassis rail about 2 inches from the bottom edge. its a bugger to see as its directly behind the vacuum tank.

    We will look into it. previously we have found that a batch of 250 warrants the project. we will concentrate on the popular sizes to begin with. but if demand is there anything is possible

    yep the originals for British rims were slightly bigger, its an age old debate about fitting 16" tyres and there is no definitive answer. i have fitted dozens of tyres on British rims without any problems as have many others, some others have had problem and some people have the wheels turned down a touch on a lathe. To keep costs within reason we would use an existing new carcass and have the them moulded with the pattern required so they will most likely be 16". To make a the carcass from a scratch as well would raise the final price significantly.

    Yep we wont be using any current names on the design, were thinking maybe WD with the Crows foot.

    Hi, David i have a couple of tyres to use as a pattern one is the 30's style and the other is a WD stamped WW2 period tyre. so a final design will be WW2 style.

    I see 11.00 x 20 tyres are available at the moment for around £250- £275, so we'll see what can be done. needs interest though so pass the word.

    Ok thanks for the feedback, didn't consider 1100-20's, is this QL size? will look into it and add it to the poll.
