    WW2 bomb trailer tyres

    Does anyone know of a source for ww2 bomb trailer tyres and/or inner tubes? 18 x 7, originals were Goodyear or Firestone from what I can see on our trailers.

    A farm supply outfitter?
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    Do you mean for the early type bomb trolleys? Type 'B' and onwards? Like in the Airfix Stirling kit? Split rim wheels at 40 psi? The stores ref was 4G/1444 at one time but I've long lost my notebook with all the useful refs in it (it would have had seven digits in my day. ISTR most were cast with "Avon Armadillo" on the side walls as a trade name.
    I don't imagine that Kwikfit can help, but the more specialist tyre suppliers should be able to. I got a wheelbarrow inner tube from one based on Great Central Rd., in Mansfield, Notts.

    I believe they are type c trolleys. We have Bush Tyres on the search, we use them for all our obscure tyres.
