Yet another Australian history quiz...
Does anyone know if in the history of Olympic tyres they always used the Olympic branding on the tyres, or when they became Dunlop Olympic did the branding on the tyre change to Dunlop Olympic??
I am just trying to date some Olympic tyres so any help with dates etc, is much appreciated.

The tyres i am looking at have Olympic Balloon with the discus thrower between those words. The other marking is Special Duty. The size is 18 x 4.50.

From memory they were around until about 5 or 6 years ago in limited sizing. In the 70 in particular they were a major played with quite a lot of OEM manufacture. After that the sort of gradually faded to nothing.
Olympic Air Ride, Olympic Reflex are styles I remember.

There was always a motor sport influence there in the pre-war years.

Ken McKinney took Advanx to Melbourne, they were opposition to Beaurepaire. But there's definitely something in the Ken McKinney story that relates to Beaurepaire.
