Complete the slogan "TYRES [small print] 9 M(on)THS TO _______"??
- Order new ones?
- Wait while our mechanics install them?
- World rubber supplies run out?

Were tyres hugely expensive items in those days? Strange to see how much the advertising emphasises the threat for non-payment - now it's buried in small print.

edit after looking at an inflation calculator - a lot more. I think a Mini tyre was £10-£12 which is £160 per tyre after inflation today?

The sign would probably read

TYRES
and valves new & retreads [small print]
9 MONTHS TO PAY
Terms Available [small print]

(Previous comment was a poor joke) WE TAKE YOUR CAR was not serious.

It would have been a good way of keeping the showroom stocked.... Interesting price figures - on the same basis of 1500% rises in 30-40 years petrol would now be £3 per gallon or thereabouts = just under 70p per litre or half what they charge now. Swings and roundabouts....

I think Sunbar is perhaps a bit over the top with the mini tyre. In 1967 I was running a 1958 Vauxhall Victor Model F Series 1. A 5.60 x 13 remould was about £4.00 which was one third of my trainee's week's wages. I never got rich enough to consider buying new tyres for that car, my previous Ford Popular 103E ran on ten bob tyres from the local scrapyard, you bought the wheel and tyre and left your old ones, or took the tyres off yourself. There were lots of Pops to be found in such places then. Marginal motoring, or what!
