One of mine in bad shape when we took tyre off so looking for another. It’s going to be blasted and powder coated.
Cheers

What width are you after?  Just Kampers sell new ones.

Made in Italy at a factory that made them back in the 70`s.   I have purchased these and they are fair value for money in my opinion.

Ok was worried about them not being the same each side but if they are the same then I’ll take a look. 5” wide for front
Cheers

Blooming eck HUDGE they are what you call wide!! I’ve already got some banded steels for the rear (not as wide as those bad boys tho) just looking for a standard 5” wide 15” for the front.

Then Just Kampers is the place for you, brand new and you will know that the tyres will seal, bearing in mind most of the braking is done by the front.

Not sure about the smaller sizes, but i’ve just had tyres fitted to a new set of 8x15 from JK and 2 places didn’t have the larger valves required for the rim...just a heads up in case ;-)up

My bad it wasn't eBay

https://www.tyrebaydirect.com/product/tr415-tubeless-valves-32mm-length-snap-in-valves-qty-25/

The link above will work, but what you are looking for anywhere on the web is tr415 valves

They are used on Landrover defenders too

Tr415 - they’re the kiddies! They were also referred to by one fitter as ‘taxi valves’ - used on black cabs.

Got my tyres fitted in the end at a place that also does commercial vehicles - no problemos.
