British tyre size incompatibility.
Mike of Victoria, Australia, has been researching the problem of why American tyres will not fit British rims despite the apparent call ups of the 2 types appearing to be the same. His article deals specifically with 9.00 x 16 of WW2 vintage, but the details may assist those with rims of other sizes or eras (eg Ferrets, Saladins and Saracens).
The article must be viewed as if it were a picture (it was scanned as a combined text/graphic) as I do not have the spare time to do the work to seperate the text from the graphics.

My thanks to Mike for the article and permission to reproduce it.
