I'd love some period 70's looking tyres for my bug as i do agree modern tread patterns (especially asymmetrical ones) look wrong unless its a german look car.
125 a tyre is way outside my price range though.

My caravelle came with the original 1988 Michelin N spare still in the clamshell.
Its still got these Michelin X tyres on the front.

yep.

But is that a bad thing?

here is our page that lists the period tyres https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/cla...olkswagen.html if you are interested in fitting period tyres.

And here is a short safety film we made to test snow studs.

I hope you don't find our business ethos too corporate.
