    It's been nearly 25 years since I've owned an 8v. As far as I remember you can fit a 110/80 on the front and 140/80 on the rear. This will give you a few more tyres to choose from, still no radials as far as I can see, but there are one or two VB rated ones.
    Might need a thicker rear wheel spacer tho.

    I was trying to figure out a better way to run a kneeler sidecar suitable tire and wondered what would happen if you just took 2 stock rims and welded them together to make them double width and then fit a car tire :|
