Hi Kim,

Thanks for the info. I'm surprised that you have that many, I wouldn't have guessed there were a lot left, show's how ignorant I am :))

Small possibility that if you find me the tyre maker and reference I can turn some up, unless we're talking any period tyre with outurned bead. No promises, but I'll see what I can do. Cheers

Nick

Hi Nick,

Wolber Mixte rims worked with tubulars and only a certain type of clincher tire; the bead had to be curved outwards. I have a whole bunch of wheels in the cellar with these on them, but haven´t found any tires in good enough shape to ride them in about six years. They are also hairy for tubulars, since there is very little room to glue them. Not the safest, but I guess that is why they were discontinued. I have an advert for them somewhere in a Miroir, I´ll have to look. I believe there is a thread in the archives.

Best, kim
