1200R20 Tyres
« on: April 04, 2019, 11:19:30 AM »
Dear Inter owners - I am seking an expression of interest from REMLR members and pther Inter owners for them to indicate if they would be onterested in new tyres 1200R20 either bar tread or a good offroad pattern.  I have a contact who is a manufacturer and I will get prices and pictures to test the depth of interest.  These guys also make run flat tyres and I will post details of these as well for the ferret and Alvis family owners.  If the offer and orders stack up I am happy to take things to the next step.  In this way a cooperative purchase of bulk tyres may provide significant savings for all.  I have tried to get tyres at reasonable prices and I am not having much luck.

Happy to get your feedback and ideas folks

I'm definitely interested.
I have the PC50 tires on mine at present, and they are suitable for what I intend to use the truck for, and look somewhat genuine.
I received 3 really good condition ones when I got the truck, 2 of which will co on the front, and I picked up 6 tyres from down near Hobart, but they are only fair to rough.
Not sure if they would be good enough to pass a roadworthy, as they have fairly deep tread, but were off a cross-country drilling rig and have lots of stone cuts and chunks out of the treads.
Freight might be an issue to Tasmania, but I'll worry about that later.
Greg.

When I was still working ,I used to notice an industrial tyre business we used for on road callouts,would sometimes have good lookin 12.00x20 s,and I asked the fitter,he said they came off import forklifts,and were replaced with the flat tread slicks used on concrete....This was 10 years ago.............at the time we were always chasing used 14.00x20 s for the cranes,and 12.00s were too skinny..............I also have about 10 ex army radials I bought at auction,saving them for a project...... Im getting a bit old for heavy stuff,but who knows.

We might be interested in 5 also. We would also need freight to Tasmania.

Thanks John and Murray - each time I am getting closer to the minimum shipment size - keeps costs down and makes things worthwhile.  I will advise further - STDDIVER     wait out
