Tidying up the garage !

3 pairs of skinwall tyres

pics here

https://photos.app.goo.gl/6rbx7Rs18cR7cjYd8

"Uber rare" Wolber skinwall tyres from a 1983 or 1984 French MTB - 26x1.95 - 47x559
never seen such a pair.

good condition but the rubber covering the wire bead at the edge sometimes starting to deteriorate in some parts - see pics
more aesthetic issue than affecting functionality IMHO.
Wolber is actually in my opinion the best French tyre make from the 1970's or 1980's - the rubber is aging extremely well to this date on all models I have seen

75 EUR without shipping

Ritchey Megabyte Z MAX - WCS Model - foldable
Used but good condition - see pics - supple

90 EUR without shipping

Ritchey Megabyte Z MAX -
Used but good condition - see pics

60 EUR without shipping

grouped shipping preferred !

Tyres based in France

Evidently, my pricing is optimistic - not been on MTB parts since a while :facepalm:

so don't be afraid to make me offers :idea:

The Wolbers are from the very late 1980's maybe even early 90's - some of their last products before being sold to Michelin

found on a 1983 - or 1984 french MTB - seemed original to me

Sorry but they are definitely later and could even be the same age as the Ritchey!

*they are very good tyres though, I've had two sets over the years and have one lonely one left

I have those exact same wolber tires that came stock on one of my 1995 model MTB, so maybe this model has been the same for a long time?
