Sorry to drag up this old subject once again. Looking for some skinwall tubs for a early / mid 90s build. The other threads I've found on this topic have recommended

Vittoria Rally
Conto Giro

Any other options? Don't mind spending a little more but not sure I can stretch to veloflex.

Anyone tried vittoria corsa evo SC? Might be a bit more pricey but would be 'right' for the build.

If the SC is better than the CX then you can't go wrong. Brilliant tubs.

Most "correct" if you don't want to go for Veloflex IMHO would be the Rallys. I chose these for the 1981 Gios Super Record as tread is the spitting image of old Wolber tubs.

But be careful when fitting so they don't "hop". Use Zip-ties and/or toestraps to make sure they adhere properly near the valve.
