Recalling a bygone era – a new Waymaster range
Although it boasts dimensions similar to those shown on recent Bridgestone and Michelin concept tyres, the latest Waymaster product released by Vintage Tyres is strictly old school. The new Waymaster Thirty features a tread pattern the classic tyre supplier describes as “recalling a bygone era”; the WM30 pattern harks back to the late 1920s, a time when tyre design moved on apace as designers sought ways to overcome the inherent instability and road noise associated with “block” tread patterns and create tyres suitable for the next generation of quality cars, such as the “Silent Sports Cars” soon to arrive from Bentley, Lagonda and Rolls Royce.
The first three Waymaster Thirty sizes to be released are the 525/550/600-19, 525/550-18 and 525/550-17. Vintage Tyres says more sizes will join the range soon.
