Mini as in the Mini car ??

Dunno about over there,but Minis were used in autocross/grasstrack and normal rallying over here,and there was a 10" gnarly type tread available called 'Minicross'.

Can`t help with stockists other than maybe Demon Tweeks (in UK) or looking on Tinternet.

You could try Pablo`s Motorcyle Tyres as well Andrew.. He has an incredible range in stock and if he hasn`t got what you want, he will know where to get it and send it up to you.. Worth a look anyway..

Maybe some of those pit bikes have a similar size tyre??

I think some of the rally type Minis used 12" rims.
How much room do you have Andrew, to go up to a bigger rim??

10" tires getting rare

Minis moved up to 12 inch and later 13 inch tires in the 70s and 80s. Thus the 10 inchers are hard to find, though still available. The 10 inchers are quite in demand by rabid Mini collectors though; They'll even replace the 13 inchers on a 90s Mini with 10s to get the classic 60s look. So there are 10 inch Mini tires available, but there's more choice in the 12 and 13 inch sizes if you want to change rims.
