Q I have been try­ing to lo­cate 205/60VR13 rated tyres for my Tick­ford Capri, but have dis­cov­ered that this size and pro­file are no longer avail­able.

Other than swap­ping to 15 inch wheels, can you ad­vise me on al­ter­na­tives? Are there any spe­cial­ists pro­duc­ing out-of­pro­duc­tion tyres? Mark Kemps­ford Email

A Don’t panic — there’s no prob­lem about tyre avail­abil­ity. While the orig­i­nal Goodyears are no longer avail­able, Vre­destein pro­duce a suit­able tyre in this size with the cru­cial VR rat­ing. Toyo also pro­duces their su­per-sticky, road-le­gal R888 track day tyre with this rat­ing for around the same price, and if you go slightly wider, the Block­ley Tyre Co do a 235/60VR13 tyre with a suit­ably-pe­riod tread pat­tern.

VR-rated 205/60 tyres as used on the Tick­ford Capri are still avail­able off-the-shelf.
