Title: The military tyre thread
Post by: Mick_Marsh on June 29, 2012, 10:23:31 PM
I thought I'd start this thread so people can post up where they found military type tyres for their vehicles.

I've been searching a lot for tyres recently. White walled for classic cars etc. The searches usually take me to "Antique Tyres" in Melbourne. I see this company at classic car displays and the usual response to enquiries about bar tread tyres is "We've only got 6.00 x 16 bar treads mate."
I'm after some 12.00 x 20 bar treads so I was surprised to find Antique Tyres now have 7.00 x 16, 7.50 x 16 and 9.00 x 16 bar treads.
I'm going to price the 9.00 x 16's for the 101.
I'll keep at them for the 12.00 x 20's.

I have also found the prices at Antique Tyres are quite high and have been able to find other sources  at a much cheaper price however if Antique Tyres are the only place then I guess there are no options.

I also found that MRF have a good range of bar treads and sand grips at a good price.

I bought some tyres off this guy (Noel) 0408 675 850 (he is a  mechanic/tyre retailer so no problems to put up his number).

I bought some steel treks and they where near new, I also bought some original Olympic Trojan bar treads off him and they where very very good for age and near new - about $ 100 each.

Hi To All
I purchased 5 Firestone NDTs from Universal Tire Co https://www.universaltire.com. They will not export direct to Australia as they supply to Vintage Rip Off in Melbourne. So you do as I did and get yjem through the back door. I had them shipped to a US address loaded in to a container and shipped to Australia. There is several companys that specialise in doing this one that I have been recomended is USA ti AUS http://www.usatoaus.com/ if you look at thier web site you will see that it is quite reasonable to ship goods over. When I purchased my tyres they cost me $126 per tyre.
Hope this helps
Cheers

Just as an FYI...  I bought 6 brand new Goodyear 12.00x20 bar tread from L.W. Vass in England.  They handled everything I needed including a freight company to Perth.. The only hiccup was the actual import company in Perth that let me down on telling me they were actually on the wharf.
I see on their website that they handle a lot of the army type treads.  Have a look & dont be afraid to give them an email..  vass.co.uk.

Hi all,
Not sure how organised we can get ourselves, but here is one seller on an import site from China.

http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/473442303/600_16_military_tires.html

You will see the full list of sizes available, but the featured item is a 600/16
Indicative price is $40-80 / per SET - minimum order 50 sets. $10 - $20 each...Will they be any good?
If so, surely we can commit to 200 tyres? Ill take 5....
Aparently we may even have a say in the markings as well... so maybe REMLR brand?

I have a contact who imports several containers a month from China so Iwe could get that sorted.
The same guy has a wharehose south of Sydney and already does all that with the goods he imports so perhaps he could receive the container and dispatch the tyres internally for a fee?
Might be worth doing the exercise and see what the delivered price per tyre will be after freight, fees, duty, postage?
Alternatively, if we had enough interest he might be persuaded to add the tyres to his inventory, we'd pay a bit more but then no risks?

Some food for thought?
Rob.

Post by: juddy on November 01, 2012, 04:09:37 PM
I have used VASS they are very good.

As for this China stuff, seems like a good idea, of course theres going to be at least another 25/40% to add to the tyre price.  But lets get some costings and take it from there.

I would also suggest and this is very important a sample before committing to 200 plus tyres, if you  are going to purchase that many tyres, the supplier should be happy to send a tyre for evaluation, be that for free or someone here pays the air freight..

Title: Re: The military tyre thread
Post by: Mick_Marsh on November 01, 2012, 05:27:49 PM
It would be good if you can get them in a range of sizes.
7.50x16, 9.00x16 and 12.00x20 comes to mind.
If they're cheap enough, it wouldn't matter if they didn't last as long. The rubber goes off with age so regular replacement (quite a few years between tyre changes) would be a good thing.

I have put an enqiry in to VASS quite some time ago. They are a little slow in their responses. Is that usual?

Post by: KiwiMike on November 02, 2012, 07:20:24 PM
I posted this in the New Zealand section, not knowing there was a thread for tyres. I recently bought a set of ex NZ army Goodyear tyres on Trademe for $40. They were originally fitted to the sellers Skippy, which he had already sold. They comprise of 4 Goodyears, made in NZ, and the spare being a Hankook, all 7.50x16, with plenty of tread. I'm planning on fitting them onto my Skippy. My question is, has anybody here had any experience with with these tyres? What are they like on/off road?
Title: Re: The military tyre thread
Post by: rob king on November 05, 2012, 10:30:44 AM
OK I've been speaking (emailing) with Mr Ma from the tyre Co in China.

Fist - Although the table in the web page I attached showed a huge range of tyres (including all yours Mick), they are only currently producing 600-16's (must be a jeep tyre?) which he says they are 'exporting to Japan , Italy , Egypt, Pakistan , Indonesia etc'
Will make all the other sizes, but require US$1750 to tool up in each case. (refunded with sufficient quantity - and the mould is 'exclusively ours')

Second, - A set is not 4 tyres;  I was told " For the size 750-16 , the price (FOBqingdao) is USD72/SET, one set = one tire + one tube + one flap .
While that makes the minimum order just 50 tyres, it's no longer quite as attractive cost-wise.
However I understand we can haggle, and if they are tooling up for us we can brand it as we like.... 

Juddy I understand you do a bit of importing so you would be better able to calculate the rest....?
+ 25/40% = AU $86 - 97 per tyre/tube?
From the states, a Firestone 750-16 via UStoAus freight co, is $190 landed - collect from port Botany.

A sample is a good idea, but without the 750-16 mould, it would need to be the 600-16 version.

I guess we need to know how many of what sizes people are keen to commit to and see if its feasible.

SO THEY COULD BE LABELLED "'REMLR TYRE' - INFO AT REMLR.COM.AU"   ??
or would you propose replicating (as close as is legal) the original tyres and writing?

OR would they self name them as they will own the tooling etc (and as refunded over bulk purchase doesnt this mean theyll want their own brand?
Title: Re: The military tyre thread
Post by: rob king on November 08, 2012, 02:06:59 PM
Hi Digger,
I'm open to suggestions.
If we did have enough interest to proceeded, we would own the mould even if the cost of same was refunded once the target was reached. So why not promote REMLR? seems we have identified a market need....
Why not direct ownership, orders, proceeds, etc ... to the club?
Seems that would be logical if the added accounting and ordering, dispatch etc can be accommodated through the RELMR store for a modest fee?
If interested members place their order and pay through the store, once a minimum production quantity is achieved in any one size, the order made.
Shipping can be directed to any state but I understand there are higher fees at Melbourne.
Apparently too the most econimical shipping price is achieved per container and that is 750 tyres - if talking about 750-16
750 units would also equate to $2.25 per tyre to amortise the tooling cost.
The US$1750 refund can go to RELMR to make another size mould if there is sufficient demand?

Mind you the overworked underpaid executive might have something to say about the added work.... :-\

  I went through this drama a couple of years ago about having tires made / purchased in China as I have a friend that spends a lot of time in China getting stuff made for people or buying stuff for people here in Aust. If you look back on the old sight you will find it. They don,t make a non directional bar tread as per what every one wants and to have them made in the numbers Qlty required is cost prohibited by members of this forum Add to that shipping  The shipping would have to be a minimum of a 40 ft container load of any tire for a company over there to even think about dealing with a group like us .

    If you would like to speak with my friend I can put you in touch with him.

Colin

My understanding is this (others may have a better understanding).

If you buy an item for $1000 you most probably will have to pay these fees and costs.

Buy Fee - Simulcast Bidder
% of the purchase price 5.50%
Maximum fee charged $110.00

Handling Charge
Fixed fee of $5.50
If the purchase price is greater than $101.00 $16.50
If the purchase price is greater than $201.00 $33.00

Buyer Admin Fee - Truck and Plant
% of the purchase price 13.75%
If the purchase price is greater than $5000.00 7.70%

That will now be $1231.00 please :(

On top of this, you will need to pay 10% GST on the total of $1231.00

Thats now $1354.00 of your hard earned cash >:(

Title: Re: The military tyre thread
Post by: gromit on February 11, 2013, 10:51:03 PM
Plus the $48 to bid on-line and the $500 bond, OK I guess you get the $500 back.
So maximum bid $60 per pallet (6-tyres) which costs you about $126.26 plus GST (depending whether they add the handling charge before adding the 'buyer admin fee').
If you bid up to $120 it costs about $30 plus GST per tyre.

Does anyone have history on what they have sold for previously ??

Title: Re: The military tyre thread
Post by: FFRMAN on February 11, 2013, 11:00:21 PM
HI, I bought 4 pallets at Altona last year, the vendor bid is $75 so your first bid is $100 and up $25 per bid, most pallets sold for $125 for average tyres and $200 for good tyres, 6 tyres per pallet. Remember that out of the 6 tyres 3 maybe four are OK, there are some real bad ones mixed in (and I mean not just unroadworthy but unusable!!), plan on buying twice what you need.

I'll pull out my invoice tomorrow and have a look, but from memory "just" 13.75% on top of winning bid price, + GST.

There are a lot of people (not just us) looking very closely at these tyres so no bargains.......

Hi all
If you go to Fowles /Manheim be aware that the tyre pallets may contain tyres that are useless conveniently hidden on pallet. Observed many Steel treks which should not be auctioned. Also DO NOT buy by ONLINE auction as the above problem is there. Was after tyres for 2A Forward Control, these were from military LAV's i think and one stack of 4 had a huge hole in wall and was won by online bidder.

BUYER BE VERY AWARE

Standard are 9 00 16, would like something a bit wider. The 3 pallets of 4 tyres (LAV's and OKKA )went very high and full of rope patches and bloody big holes.

Digging up a quiet thread here.
I have been looking for some tyres for my landrover, and I came across the MRF catalogue.
Anyway they have bar treads in  7.50-16 9.00-16 and 12.00-20.  I have a friend in india who has been able to get on to MRF about them and found that they are military order.  Anyway he is getting some prices for me. 
So I wondered if anyone else was interested in bar treads.   If there was enough interest I might be able to organise a container.

Why - they are sold in Australia and there are MRF dealers around.  I bought some of the sand grip version in 2009 from Ag Services in Moree (no longer sell them) and I believe there are dealers inn Sydney and Melbourne.

Give Antique tyres a call. They are a little expensive and have poor customer service but they cater for a limited market.
After a few years of calling them, asking them if they can get 1200x20 bar treads and being told they couldn't, one fellow said "This is the manufacturer we deal with. We can only get those."
When I pointed out to him that manufacturer made 1200x20 bar treads, he was very surprised and ordered some for me after three further phone calls.

Ok maybe dealers have stopped selling them - they were certainly around 2 years ago.

Do you really think you are going to be able to flog off a container load of tyres?  You will have lots of $$$ tied up for a long time?

Hi Geoff

I am open to being corrected but as well as being run flat, I thought the Ferret tyres were a higher ply rating than the 101/109/110 FC.  The pattern on the Ferret are usually a lazy "S" while the FC are bar or the XZL block pattern.  Not that you neet to be so pedantic when you replace tyres,

Title: Re: The military tyre thread
Post by: fc101 on January 04, 2014, 10:50:27 AM
I would have thought that the tyres would be different but maybe not - max weight of a 101 is 3.5t where a Scout according to Wiki is 3.7t so not a lot different though a 101 would rarely be up at 3.5t.

The standard tyre for the 101 is a Goodyear 9.00x16 NDM  nylon bias 10ply tyre.  While the same size, as the Ferret predates the 101 by 20-30 years I assume their tyres are a much earlier version (not nylon).

I may be wrong here but I think they are like rocking horse stuff as they are no longer sold in Australia. As I said I may be wrong.

These are listed on the Michelin AU site but all the sizes are quite large: http://transport.michelin.com.au/tbtyre/findalltyre/getTyreDetail/125/Z

Called Michelin today to find out more about the XZLs. They are available you just have to find a dealer who will get them in. I was told by a place in Brisbane today that they could have them within 48-36hrs.

7.50 R16

Apparently they are on special from Michelin (so I was told)

Will see when I pick them up on Saturday

Next cheapest quote was $350/tyre. Most expensive was $480.

Ok. New Michelin XZLs now acquired. Cost was 265/tyre because they didn't have the right tubes and weren't able to fit them to the actual rims.

Hi All,

FYI
I sent off a request to Michelin about some 7.50x16 XZL's to replace my Dunlop Super Grippers on the Series 3. Their reply is below.

Thanks for your query, in relation to your query the size 7.50R16C XZL 116N. RRP is $326.36 + gst per tyre only, this price however, is only a guide as Michelin Australia cannot dictate the price at which authorised Michelin dealers sell our tyres to consumers. You will need to contact your local Michelin Dealer for fitment and a quote. Please see dealer locator: http://www.michelin.com.au/index.html Kind Regards, Michelin Australia.

So off to my local dealer Tyrepower,
Tim

I have arranged for 4 new Michelin XZL tyres at $235 each fitted. Apparently Michelin are trying to unload some of these at the moment, he double checked the price. This is obviously a substantial saving and was from the first store I went to. Price may be affected by Michelin Aust HQ being in Melbourne, 30km from away.

They are the NATO pattern.
Post up a photo. They could be worth a few hundred or, if they're like the bar grips I picked up a couple of years ago, they're worthless.

DUNLOP ROAD GRIPPER S - 7.50R16 - $245

They will cost me $220.50 each minus GST and the price includes fitting. Going in Friday to get 4

It pays to check to see if they have stock of (new) secondhand tyres of this make. I bought some from their Lavington store after the then Parks Vic came in with 50 Troopies to have MTRs fitted on Sunrasia wheels. Got 'em for $150 a corner and they would've fitted 'em free if I had the wheels  ;D
