G'day mate,  common apparel for L/Rover would be 7.50 x 16inch.
7.00x16 would be hard to find anyway.

A currently available brand is MRF which aren't too bad and made in India.
Another brand is Deestone and I think it's Asian.

Old school British or American brands are much harder to come by.

The website by Antique Tyres in Victoria is also worth looking at.

HI Juddy,

7.50 x 16 are what is standard.

I have bought these and they are excellent but expensive

http://www.antiquetyres.com.au/16750

I also bought some tyres off this guy (Noel) 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.

Hope this helps
Scott

7.0 x16 are no problem to get hold of for me, but i was interested in the 7.5 ones.... I picked up some of the olympics 3 months ago for a very good price..... so these will have to do..

is there much ride difference in the 7 v 7.5???? or cant you tell?

Hi Mick_Marsh,

The guy (Noel) 0408 675 850 (he is a  mechanic/tyre retailer so no problems to put up his number). will organise the freight to a depot in Campbellfield. it costs $100 for a pellet of 5 tyres.

regards
Scott
