Hey there everyone. I managed to find an NOS RAIL tyre for the front recently, but brake pads just went through the old RIP rear tyre :oops:

So I am after preferably NOS, but these don't seem common, otherwise very good condition with plently of life left please.

Cheers all

the joke with the R.I.P tyres is that the side knobblies used to literally rip off the carcus of the tyre under hard braking/ climbing/ cornering. only a good garage queen tyre IMHO :shock:

Jez,

I have been running these on an alu hard tail off road for the best part of ten years, and I love them. The rubber has perished in recent years, and that is why this one went.

I've never owned a garage queen, but I'll take your word that they're good for that too :wink:
