Your tube, your tyre fit­ter

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

In the let­ter from Brian Al­dred (13 April), the tyre fit­ter was mis­taken in telling him that his Con­sul MkII wheels would not take tube­less tyres. The wheels do not in­cor­po­rate the ‘ridge’ on the in­side of the rim as do mod­ern ones, to pre­vent the tyre from be­com­ing un­seated should it to­tally de­flate. Nev­er­the­less, Ford – and most other man­u­fac­tur­ers – fit­ted tube­less tyres from new on all MkIIs (and other cars with solid steel wheels), from circa 1955.
