One of my Raleighs had Hutchinson tyres, but I can't remember if that was the Mustang or Mirage.

I replaced the rear tyre of my Mustang with a Tioga Farmer John or Farmer John's Cousin. The edges of the tread was so square the bike almost stayed vertical by itself. A delight in corners :shock:

The Farmer John range were absolutely dreadful on wet grass as well. I think my habit of fannying around corners like a tipsy vicar stems from that era.
