Quote from: JohnP on January 09, 2015, 23:20:11 pmI think what has changed since the 70s is the width of tyres. Back in 1978, my first car (a rusty Morris 1100 of 1967 vintage) had skinny little cross-ply tyres that would probably look more at home these days on a bicycle... Ok, slight exaggeration about the bicycle,

Quote from: Cactus on February 10, 2015, 13:12:57 pmso what you end up with is essentially an old F1 grooved tyre.

Quote from: NickK on December 30, 2014, 08:28:43 am Tis only a recommendation , Bob - probably made by tyre companies You'd never enforce it as a law
