l've been running my Big Seven on oversize tryes for a number of years, they are 500/525X16 and motor bike tyres l think. l would like to fit the original size 475x16 mainly as they can rub the bodywork on cornering hard and turning can effect front wings.
l have noticed the Vintage Tyre Supplies stock a Firestone 475x16 tyre @£125 but do any readers know of a supplier alternative to this?
I have just checked with another Big Seven Owner who recently searched for tyres for his car and ended up with the same size and make for £150 each. This included VAT and carriage. This size isn't easily available. Have you asked Robin Taylor, the Big Seven Registrar, if he knows of another source? Robin.E.Taylor@TalkTalk.net
