NEW Track grip style tyres, MORE! 10.50-16 and Dingo


Recommended Posts

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 tyre if someone can lend us one for a month or two to use a pattern? it will be returned in good order.  

cheers

Hello Barry,

I would purchase at least one set of 10.50x20's (five tyres) and one of 7.00x18's (five tyres).  For the former, I would much prefer 10.50x20 rather than 11.00x20, but would go with the elevens if that was what was available.

Thank you for investigating this as a possible production run.

Regards,

Norman

Why would you want 10.50X20 size when they were replace by 11.00X20 which were in production before the end of the war.   Every British and Canadian WW2 3 tonner is currently fitted with 11.20X20  and there would be a big demand for these but I can't see many people wanting to scrap their existing tires.

Because the Daimler Armoured Car Mk1 came out with 10.50x20. Looks very nice compared to the bigger 11.00's. But whatever the demand may be 11.00 would be perfectly acceptable of course!

As did every war-time 3 tonner but as you say quite what the demand would be to reverse engineer every 3 tonner in country if Barry wants to sell lots of tires is questionable.    With Humber Mk IV you cannot even mount a 11.00X20 on the side if the vehicle as it is too big so I had to aquire a scrap 10.50X20.

But changing all your tyres in one go, as any sensible vehicle owner should do, it wouldn't matter if you go back to the original size of 10.50. I know a lot of vehicles had the 11.00 fitted later but as you say on the Humber AC it doesn't fit as a spare. I expect if you could buy a new set of correct size tyres every Humber AC owner would jump at the opportunity as would DAC Mk1 owners? 

But of course it will be down to demand and Barry's decision. Great job he is doing BTW! I have 10 of the new 9.00x16's on order for my Ferret and Morris C8.
