Not really a kitcar-type item this but I‘m a fan of what these guys do and we do enjoy a bit of crossover so I’m happy to run it.

Vintage Tyre Supplies, of Beaulieu, has just launched the first commercial white wall tyre specifically for the type 2 Volkswagen Camper, 185R14C (102/100R) 8pr, 25mm White wall van tyre by Duramax.

For years, Camper enthusiasts wishing to use white wall tyres have been forced to use car tyres, which are often oversized and have insufficient load ratings. This is illegal in some countries and can run the risk of uneven tyre wear or worse.

The new 185R14C was specifically developed for commercial vehicles; it has an increased load capacity making it capable of loads up to 850kg per tyre. The current retail price is £66 inc VAT and they offer free carriage on all orders of £50 and over, to mainland UK.

For further information on this tyre and the company’s complete range of vintage and classic tyres visit or call them on 01590 612 261 ENDS.
