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....
