There are some new imported tyres around, I havent got supplier details to hand but they do advertise in some of the classic lorry mags. Reckon on 100-120 a tyre, plus tubes and flaps.

two mags to try:

Heritage Commercials
Classic and Vintage Commercials

Old Glory mag might turn up some tyres too, worth a go. Also keep an eye on the classifieds section of milweb.net, there is a section for tyres and occasionally 700s appear on there.
