    I'm doing up 73 Dodge Minnie-Winne and have just taken the wheels off to get them powder coated. It needs at least four tyres (there are 7 wheels inc spare!) and I just fell off my chair when I got some prices. Because they are an odd size (8.00R16.5, yes that's right, 16.5!) they are coming out at around £100 each! I can't really afford £400 on top of everything else I am doing to it at the moment, and that's assuming I can re-fit a couple of the old ones on the rear inner wheels.

    I know it's a long shot, but does anyone have any laying around? Or maybe know where I might get some cheaper or slightly used ones? :cry:
    Cheers
