We need a bunch of rear tyres for a One-Make Fly Venturi series we're starting soon. All our cars currently have old tyres that are in various stages of lousyness. Ortmann's are the one make that actually claim to make a tyre that fits (#44) but they confuse me because they say the same tyre can be used for Fly Venturis, Listers, Corvettes etc but if you go to the rear of your cars and look, it's clear that Venturi tyres are smaller. Then if we go to other tyre makers we enter a world of interior profiles (Fly axles have a wide flange, pretty much all others are narrower).

Anybody got a quick easy fix? Indeed, anybody got a big chart explaining in general what tyres go with what wheels?

Thanks guys - I've done more comparing , pulling tyres off Venturis, Corvettes and Listers and I think I'd better eat my words - they are pretty much the same. I'm ordering some Ortmanns (#44) and I'll post the result.

Thanks Wraith, I'll try that. I'd never heard of Wayne & WASP tyres before

Well, I contacted Wayne and he was unbelievably helpful - sent a couple of samples to make sure they fitted right then dropped the price for a bulk order. We just received 24 pairs of tyres and they look perfect and perform about as well as your Venturi did when you pulled it out of the box and put it on the track all those years ago.
