When looking for tyres for my HUP I went to John Grey and purchased 5 new 900 x 16 bar grips. Anyone who has seen my vehicle, might remember that it had 3 CMP rims and 1 Morris rim. There are obvious differences with these rims and getting the old tyres off of the Morris rims proved to be a right pain and in the end I burnt them off, where as, with the CMP rims, the tyres were less of a problem. Putting the 900 x 16 back on wasn't a problem as long as the surfaces were clean and I used lots of tyre lubricant. The tyres were well lubricated before assembly then the wheels were assembled, with new flaps and again well lubricated, then the tyres blown up to 60 PSI. The CMP rims, the tyre bead popped into place at this pressure, with the Morris rims it took a little more pressure but they too popped on.

The pictures below are of both type of rim.

Hi all,

I have bought the Malhotra 9.00 x 16 tyres for my MCC C8 from John Grey 2 years ago and drove close to 2500 miles on them since trough all kinds of terrain and conditions.
No problems whatsoever with these, they do what they are supposed to do and keep inflated.

Rgds.

Default New production 9.00 X 16 Trak Grip tyres / tires

It goes without saying that for many people who have for a long time been on a hunt similar to a search for Unicorns, the end may be in sight.

It has recent been reported by Barry Ring that he anticipates a production run of these tires to happen very soon and arrival in the UK after that.

There is a quite a long thread over on HMVF about this located here

http://hmvf.co.uk/topic/38525-new-tr...-ww2/#comments

I would state that I am not related in any way etc etc.

Hopefully someone can import a batch in bulk to North America. I would love to have the correct pattern tires on the 25 pounders and limbers.

Default 9:00 x 16'".

Rob/Robin,

Definitely interested in a set for my Lynx. The idea of a bulk order is appealing.

I presume the tyres are made in the Far East - India or China (we've seen pictures of Chinese-made Trak Grip pattern tyres here on MLU, of which one would have to order a minimum of one container load), so I suggest to make arrangements with Barry Ring before they are shipped to the UK. Shipping them directly from China to NA may be the best approach.

Fresh off the production line👍🏻.

900x16 12 ply.

First batch should be in the uk within the next couple of months (hopefully!)

To save me repeating myself in messages,

They should be in the UK in the next couple months

They are 16Ē so will be a tight fit on British rims (I will fit one as soon they arrive)

I donít have the final price yet, once they have arrived I will have the exact price, bulk orders will get discount 👍🏻

Will ship anywhere.

EMAIL me with Quantity, contact name, email and location please

They have a bit of a square shoulder, but I would be proud to install those on my vehicles. Sure hope somebody takes the initiative to import some for the North American market.

Tyres are now in the UK; here's mine for the C15. Maybe this will motivate me to get the old tyres off the rims!

Owen.

Those look good, what kind of load do you figure they will be proper to use for?

The rating on them says 1250 kgs @ 350 kpa. In Canadian, that translates to 2755 pounds at 50 psi.

Default 10.50-16

Anyone looking for 10.50-16 tyres, BKT make them in a road type pattern. Very useful speed and load rating, these are not low speed implement tyres. Haven’t found a distributor for them yet, tough

They 9.00-16 size has a much lower speed rating, strangely.
