    Folk's I am trying to source 2 x 225/70R15 112 Continental Vanco Camper tyres without much joy. Anyone know of a stockist who actually has them in stock? Thanks.

    Try MyTyres online
    Mine arrived from Germany in 2 days and with paying for fitting was cheaper than quoted in £UK (even though they could not get them)if that makes sense

    Thanks but they don't have them on their website. I would prefer to keep all 4 tyres the same but it looks as if it may be easier to go for the Michelin Agilis camping as these seem to be easier to get hold of in 225/70 R15 112Q and my tyres is doing them for £100 each.

    I tried to get them from our local tyre dealer Cooper Bros, they replied back that Continental UK does not list the vanco camper tyre?

    Hi there LM
    the reason that you cannot find anyone with them in stock is because Continental do not make a Vanco Camper in that size ,they only make the Vanco 100 .

    @Brian and Jo, thanks very much for finding that out for me, explains why I could not source them. Would you know if the Vanco 100 are a comparable tyre or would I be better going with the Michelin Agilis camping on the rear axle? As you are in the game so to speak what would you recommend?

    Visited P&B tyres today and met Brian of Brian & Jo fame. Complete gentleman who made Elaine a lovely coffee and sorted us out with new tyres. In the end went with the Michelin agilis camping tyre and opted to replace all 4 with 225/70 R15 with a 112 load rating. I now have 4 X Continental Vanco camper tyres in 215/70R15 with a 109 load rating surplus to requirements with 9 MM. of tread, removed at 3000 miles if anyone would like to make an offer?

    I might. You are based in Glasgow right?
    Will need to check my tyre sizes first though.

    As far as I know they are still available? We are in Carluke Irnbru but the tyres are in Oswestry at P&B tyres. Brian very kindly is storing them for me whilst I arrange their sale.
