Hi All, Wondering where the best source and options in the UK are for replacement tyres for my C2 would be..? Currently running BF Goodrich P225/75 R15 Controls. I also prefer this thinner style tyre wall stripe pictured on the current tyres.

Thanks in advance!

North Hants Tyres usually have them in stock but ask what the white line width is as mine came with a wider than normal stripe which I don't like much. Ask them for the DOT to check when the tyres were manufactured as these speciality tyres can often sit for a few years..

Thanks Stuart!! Much appreciated.
Yes , get in quick with North Hants Tyres as they have just had a large delivery of BF`s from the States last week . My order finally arrived after waiting several months as there were none in the UK in my size . Michelin in France who own Goodrich could not give any dates at the time . NHT had a real problem trying to get dates from manufacturer due to all the world wide hoo ha going on . During that time the price went up 33% then another 15 % on top of that Ouch !! NHT were very helpful and give discount to CCCUK members .

Should you decide that you can live without whitewalls, I can strongly recommend Blockley's 185VR15 tyres. I changed over to these a few years ago after having used Michelin XVS 185VR15s for many years. I am now on my second set.

Be careful buying RWL tyres due to the RBL (raised brown letter) issue. I switched both my C3's to redlnes due to a set of 2016 BFG's turning a shitty shade of brown overnight. It's called blooming and due to environmental production controls causing the oils in the tyre to leech outwards..

Thanks Chris, The Blockley's certainly look like a very well developed quality tyre, with some decent performance. Will need to think if I could live without the whitewall. Great to see there are so many options out there.
