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.

If you need to get a hold of Barry his address block is

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.
Peter

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.
