Their Bawtry warehouse is packed to the rafters with weird, wonderful and obscure vintage and classic tyres to fit all vehicles from Edwardian to a classic super car like a Lamborghini Countache. It is this knowledge and enthusiasm that has led to Longstone Classic Tyres appointment as a distributor for the Michelin classic range of tyres called Michelin Collection. Since the birth of the motor car as we know it, Michelin have been regarded as pioneers. Be it the development of the detachable tyre in 1891, the radial "X" tyre in 1946 or the classic Michelin TRX wheel and tyre combination of the 80's. Not only is Michelin's continuous contribution to the development of the pneumatic tyre without parallel, but their quality control of their classic tyres is unrivalled. As classic car drivers we should be thankful that the major tyre manufacturers are still proud of their heritage and understand the value of fitting period tyres to classic cars, after all there isn't that much call these days for a 165x400 Michelin X classic radial tyre, an 820x120 Dunlop Chevron beaded edge veteran tyre, or a 525x21 Firestone vintage tyre! The fitting of period tyres to classic cars not only enhances their looks but, more importantly to us as drivers of classic cars, enhances the way they feel and communicate over the road. Luckily the small band of merry gentlemen at Longstone Classic Tyres understand the needs of a classic car owner as they themselves are completely addicted!
