Likewise, more than happy with 225 Toyos. Blackcircles for my supply

Well, that sucks. But then, it wouldn't be a classic car without the odd hurdle...

Bit of a big hurdle though isn't it, no tyres. The Lotus Excel boys are in exactly the same boat as us.

yes - the T1R is not available.

The only 225/50 tyre was the Pirelli classic at 250 or so each unless you go for track tyres

I know there's snobbery regards tyres, I'm guilty of it .........but after looking for tyres I came across Nankang, haven't bought yet but will consider.
None of your 215's but they do a 225?
