Not really. About 50% think you’re talking about that country next to Germany!

Hasn't been out of the shed for a while, pending the resolution of a few issues! I hope to get to the Ballarat Swap too, and would like to see you there in the camper on the pickup??!!
I am also planning to get to Adelaide for the national rally next October. That's my incentive to prioritise the Model A this year! Who knows, Synchro and a few others may come this way via the Great Ocean Road, in which case I would readily backtrack to the other end in order to make that trip with them!

There will be a group of about 4 cars heading that way about a week before the rally. We will spend a few days on Kangaroo Island before heading to Murray Bridge. Looking forward to catching up again.

Do you see what you want here?
http://www.goodyear.com.au/dotCMS/Ty...websegment1=RV
I googled "Goodyear tyre sellers Australia". You might find a dealer prepared to help or Good Year Ausralia might. Let me know (PM if you like) how you go and I'll see if I can help.

Maybe you need to take a vacation, go to Maylasia, buy some tires while you're there and bring them back as souvenirs.

https://www.cokertire.com/tires/styl...on-750-16.html

i always thought those reminded me of 1950's truck tires.

https://www.intercotire.com/tires/ty...truck_off_road

or some original super swampers

or find ww2 jeep style miitary tread.

IMO the ag looking tires your looking for look too modern for a 50's truck
