I have had my new rear tyre delivered today,and have just finished fitting it D.I.Y.Not too difficult really.Tyre is Bridgestone Battleax T30R 160/60ZR18 70W,cost me £95.79p delivered to my door free post.I bought it online from Tyreleader.co.uk.I think these guys are based in Germany but have depots all over Europe,mine was sent from Paris.They have a fitting service on offer but I wasn't prepared to pay £25 to have it done !!I've changed my oil and filter also,oil was Millers Trident semi synth 10w40 5lL cost me £16.10 free post from Signet industrial distribution on e-bay.So I'm feeling quite pleased with myself Very Happy

Yes we have great roads around here,but when I was warming up the oil prior to draining I noticed a drop or two of oil escaping from the clutch push rod arm,the rubber boot was split,I think I overfilled the gearbox last year.I have parts being delivered from Motorworks tomorrow.I need to have her ready for the farmyard rally on the 19th June.

Any dramas balancing the tyre? I use a level stand with shaft and bearings at either end. It's astounding the amount of weight required to get it perfect, even between different model tyres from the same tyre manufacturer!
