With more than 30 years’ experience, Andy ‘Ace’ Harrison is amongst the UK’s foremost specialists in the original Mini. Harrison has repaired, raced, rallied, restored, bought, and sold all types of Mini via his Acespeed business in Shipley, Yorkshire. As one of the world’s leading authorities on Minis, it is no surprise that one particularly iconic Mini found its way back to Harrison, as its famous new owner sought to restore the model.
Falken will launch its new Sincera SN110 car tyre in the UK from mid-March 2020 in 49 sizes for 14-16” wheels.

Falken says this shows the tyre has not compromised on safety to achieve the tyre’s increased longevity.
