My point was that these are both sold as 600/16, so best to check before you buy. The two tyres in my picture for example are both 100% aspect ratio, but still very different in size.

Yes, you are quite correct to check before you buy!
I checked the numbers on the website again and there is something wrong about them. They quote the section width of the Coker at 6.25" or 133mm. Well, 6.25" is 159mm, not 133mm and 26.36" diameter is 670mm, not 683mm.

Hi guys, great advice, thank you. I went for Avon Tourist in the end and got a good deal for 4 tyres from Vintage tyres. They look good on the car and ride superbly.
