Glamour at Longstone
Longstone Tyres in Doncaster, South Yorkshire are now an established Borrani wire wheel supplier and as their boss Dougal Cawley says "they are the best paws your pussy cat could have" For a full list of availability and prices, give them a ring.
Longstone are also pleased to announce that they can now supply PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ tyres in size 185VR15 as original equipment for Jaguar Mark 2 and plus E-type Series 1 and 2 models and some others.
Production of these tyres started back in 1952 but now remade today by PIRELLI using modern compounds, they are designed for grip and moving water but on a period carcase so they look very period and original to the cars. These tyres should now provide the driver with the feel and progressive handling these cars were designed to have.
Longstone say that PIRELLI are also producing a fresh batch of the same CINTURATO ™ tyres in 16" size for the XK120, XK140 and XK150 models and these should be available shortly.
Longstone are offering a discount to Club members on production of their current membership card and they can also offer a special free carriage deal on PIRELLI and Michelin tyres and, in the case of the PIRELLI tyres, they will also come with FREE top quality inner tubes.
