Can anybody use this? Let's say $20 'cause I have to state a price, but I'd rather trade for Series parts, RRC parts, old-school BMX or Mtn bike parts. Willing to ship on your dime. Located in Frenchtown NJ 08825

Spare (tire only) from my RRC LWB. Mileage unknown, but most if not all tread left (see photos). DOT "503" (50th week of 1993?)

I am really hoping they are going to make them again one day. Lovely looking tire, just so Range Rover! I carry one as a spare, equally ancient. Had to use it a while ago as I had a slow puncture but found small pieces of rubber were coming off after only 50 odd miles or so. You have to be a little careful with old tires - they are not care-free.

I have one of these as well. I am happy to give it away. It was the spare in my 1993 LWB. It was never used and appears to be in better cosmetic condition than the one above. However, it is over 20 years old.

I am in Los Angeles, 90025.

Something is odd about the link - can't seem to find anyone selling them in the UK or 'EU'. Hope I am wrong.....

It worked when I tried it soon after posting, but not now it seems.

Classic Tires - Longstone just went via this one to their general site.

They are a company that's been around a fair while and specialised in this area of providing classic tyre types. Should be no problem with Longstone but could have batch supply exclusively to them.
