Any more road reports?
I’m really pleased with them
Drove to Blyton and back (220 mile round trip) and for me
they were a definite improvement over previous Aquajets.

Cheers

Did that include any rain out of interest? Their wet performance seems to be the unreported part of the jigsaw so far...

Anyone put them on a set of Dunlop D1's yet? I don't know whether to get 145's or wait for 165/70's..

I can`t bring myself to buy a set due to the huge BLOCKLEY on the sidewall making it not exactly a period looking tyre in my eyes, the tread looks great though so I may come around eventually.
My Dunlops are getting near to the wear limit which is a shame as they are really grippy when part worn and great in the wet but I got them at a very good price at the time.

I too had the exact same thoughts when I originally saw the tyre sidewall. It's a shame it couldn't be a little less in your face BUT with the nice tread pattern and, so far, good reports, I think it the are likely to be adorning my Minis in the future.

It depends if you drive or show your car. Personally I would prefer modern tyres on a car used on the road. A wet weather review is needed. 145 v 165 is an interesting comment. I look forward to future comments.

I wouldn’t. I’ve have 145/70 12’s in the past and they look under hatted.
I've got a 69 Mini with a 1046, Cooper Head and a four on the floor.

The 145/10s are marked up for a 4 inch rim. 3.5 in rim undersize for it 4.5 slightly oversize 5 probably not greatly over stretched.
