  1. Ok, so now that we have made, sold and fitted the 900-16 track grip style tyres, we are now planning on 10.50-16 next! and possible 700-18 for Daimler dingo (depending on interest) so the first step is to gauge the interest in these tyre sizes, if people could reply with a comment on the size and number they would be interested in. only the sizes mentioned above for mow. also spread the word on other groups you maybe members of. it will take a bit of time but hopefully not as long as the 900's took! we have an original WD 10.50-16 to use as a pattern and will be looking for a dingo
  2. For the Ferret owners out there, the tyres fit your wheels perfectly, same bead dimensions as RF.
  3. HI Everybody FINALLY!! the tyres are here in the UK! I have fitted over a dozen already and they look and feel great. they do fit onto British rims with plenty of tyre lube 🙂 They are £300 each including a tube and flap. collection from Bristol or Portsmouth of we can ship at cost (UK pallet usually £90) Either PM me on here or drop me an email armytyres@gmail.com We also have 7.50-20 Bar Grip, 8 ply, @ £135 each inc tube and flap 6.00-16 bar grip 8 ply @ £80 each inc tube and flap.
  4. Sure, these pictures are from Ian West's LRC. The Turret is turned manually.
  5. The turret on the LRC does rotate 360 degrees on a very simple turret ring comprising of some angle iron and 3 bearings! nothing fancy 🙂 the little doors in the top of the turret are big enough to get your head out of and maybe a shoulder if your small enough. the main hatches are much bigger and this is where the BOYS rifle was fired from. On a side note i have since sold this Morris and its now joined another Morris LRC up in Cumbria that was restored by Debbie and Paul at Rusty trucks.
  6. HI all Could i ask that anyone who is interested in tyres please email me armytyres@gmail.com Let me know qty interested in, location, email and contact name Just so i can keep a track on requests in one place. Thanks
  7. Hi Everybody, Finally some good news! production is happening as i type. So hopefully some tyres will be with us soon. To save me sending a million messages 🙂 1, they should be in the UK in the next couple months 2, final price not known yet as we still have shipping, customs etc, as soon as e know i will update. Bulkk orders will be discounted 3, they are 16" so will be a tight fit on British Rims, i will fit one as soon as they arrive.
  8. frustratingly we are still waiting on production, they have assured us its imminent! as soon as they ready i will make an update.
  9. thanks Robin, will be in touch once we have some firm dates on the first batch.
  10. we have made 900x16 to start with.
  11. Hi Everybody, Finally some good news on the tyre project, We anticipate production to happen this month, Finally!! all being well tyres will be in the UK in the spring. i will upload some pictures once they have been produced.
  12. Probably a good idea to contact the Heavy goods team as DVSA as you'll need to book a "first" MOT/plating, which when i did it for a Unimog was quite an involved job in itself! as you cant book a slot without the vehicle having a "Plate" so they had to issue us with a temporary plating then we could book the MOT slot. The MOT will need to be done before DVSA registration. Once we had made the initial contact with the heavy good team they were very helpful.
  13. PM sent, will take the lot.
  14. Just a waiting game at the moment, we're waiting on the company to produce them still. as its a small batch we have to wait our turn! frustrating but we will get there.
  15. Hi all, quick update on the tyres, we are just waiting on the production company to get on with them! we keep chasing them up but unfortunately no date for receiving them set it stone yet. we will get there in the end, as soon as i have a date set on them arriving on the uk i will update. sorry to anyone waiting on them, we are at the mercy of the production.
