Two 15-cwt rims I picked up recently have American made “Kant Slip” 9.00-16 W /|\ D tyres FOR BRITISH WHEELS made by Kelly Springfield Tyre Co. on them.

They are a proper NDMS bar grip, and not a retread. I have not been able to find a date on them. The American Kelly-Springfield Tire Company was founded in 1894. It was acquired in 1935 by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, who maintained it as a subsidiary until 1999 when it was integrated into Goodyear North America. It continues today as a major brand under Goodyear. So they could have been made anytime during the past.

Could it be the US supplied tyres for British wheels under Lend-Lease? Or would the US supply European MDAP recipients after WW2 with tyres made for their ex-Canadian equipment?

I had those Kelly tyres taken off the rims and they yielded some nice flaps marked “Goodyear | Made In Canada | for 16” rim” and tubes marked “NCD | W/|\D | Goodyear Made in Canada | 9.00-16 Heavy Duty | Do Not Use in RF Casings”.

Thanks Mariano for posting this article. I found it very interesting.
How many of you have experienced a broken spring? I have had one (off road in my 3/4 ton WC Dodge) To break 2400 springs in tyre testing indicates some arduous testing. Its hard to imagine all that and the back aches that went with the day to day driving involved.
