Longstone Tyres

Buy vintage tyres online from Longstone Tyres; one of the world´s leading independent suppliers of all styles of vintage tyres, classic tyres & veteran tyres.

Longstone Tyres are the UK distributors for Pirelli classic tyres & classic tyres from all major manufacturers! If you are not sure which of our vintage tyres you need, we can help. Read our discussion of tyre and rim types and sizes; the history and various types of vintage tyres, veteran tyres, classic tyres, retro tyres and vintage car rims.

Longstone Classic Tyres ( Tel: 01302 711 123) , a leading company in the supply of specialist tyres for classic cars to both trade and retail markets have recently joined forces with Pirelli to develop their share of the classic car tyre market. For some time now Pirelli have made a limited range of classic tyres, however they have, until recently, been notoriously hard to track down!

Pirelli’s reputation for being at the cutting edge of tyre development began a hundred years ago when Prince Borghese driving an Itala won the Peking - Paris race. Michelin Patented their Michelin X radial tyre in 1946 which transformed peoples perceptions of the longevity they could expect from a tyre. Pirelli’s release of their Cinturato tyre in 1952, the worlds first textile radial tyre, moved the goal posts yet again. The Pirelli Cinturato quickly became the dominant radial tyre in European GT and sports car racing circles. The Cinturato was the tyre of choice. The Pirelli Cinturato combined unprecedented grip with high-speed capabilities, the Cinturato also gave a supremely comfortable ride. Not surprisingly, the Pirelli Cinturato soon became standard equipment on many of the great Italian marques of the era, including Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini.

Longstone Tyres have a long history of involvement with the historic car market. Through racing vintage and historic cars, and offering a fitting service at events such as Classic Le Mans and many UK race meetings. Because of this and our vast knowledge of classic cars Longstone Tyres is in the perfect position to know which tyre sizes are in demand, and to help these tyres find their way on to the most desirable cars in the world. Because of this market place knowledge Pirelli have agreed to re manufacture yet more sizes allowing classic car owners to once again experience the benefits of the Pirelli Cinturato.

The Range So Far.

165HR400 CA67: fits Citro・ Traction avant. But the Cinturato was factory fitment on Lancia Aurelia, Flamina and 50's Alfa's. This is quite a special size. In period Ruote Borrani Milano made 400mm wheels for all sorts of cars such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Alvis and Austin Healey so they could upgrade to the first radial tyres. The Cinturato is the only tyre with a H speed rating in this size.

Classic and Sports Finance


Classic and investment cars are our core business. What is considered a Classic? Dated between 1946 – 1964 is considered a Classic model and 1965-1974 being a Post Classic model although we feel that anything up to 1990 falls within this category. Our funding packages will assist with the purchase of the modest and fun as well as blue chip investment models. Our facilities have no upper limit and we clearly understand the investment potential of these cars.

Drawing on our extensive experience and market knowledge we can assist with your purchase throughout the entire process. We share your enthusiasm and effectively use our market intelligence to ensure you receive the correct support for your individual wants and needs.

Our funding is created by enthusiasts for enthusiasts to buy beautiful cars.
We bring you a broad base of knowledge developed over our past 27 years in this market sector, offering access to our extensive relationship base with funders, suppliers, motor clubs and auction houses. Our funding can offer long term agreements, realistic deposits and balloon structures on a variety of models. If you currently own the vehicle or have a collection you wish to raise capital against we can also help.

We would prefer you to be buying through a dealer, however, can often support you through a private purchase if required. If you are in the early stages of buying a car we can offer clear direction as we recognise that the funding is only a part of a much larger process and that the market can be confusing, where and what to buy is a key factor. You may want to have the car independently inspected and we recommend this on certain occasions through one of our recognised inspectors. Whatever you need please ask!

Padgett Motor Engineers

Padgett Motor Engineers are Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialists.

Padgett Motor EngineersThe leading authority on R Type Bentley Continentals.

Specialists in rally competition preparation to winning standards. The engine is rebuilt to extremely high specification to meet requirements of international rally driving with sustainable competition endurance. Also all work to standard cars in the same 'concours' standard.

A Brief History of Padgett Motor Engineers

This firm was established 1957 in Newbury, Berkshire by Alan Padgett father of present owner Jeremy.
Alan was apprenticed as a motor mechanic in York during WW 2 until his 'Conscription' in 1946 and served in the 'Royal Air Force' in the Far East,. By 1949 he was back in England and having finished his apprenticeship, started working part time on motor vehicle repairs including Vintage cars. In 1954, now married, he and his wife moved to Newbury. Berks,

Alan was involved with racing Bentleys after selling his first Vintage car a 12/40 Lea Francis and buying a 1926 Speed Model 3 Litre.. He worked part time to gain essential experience, from Tony Townshend at Whittonditch works from 1954. He worked on some very interesting Bentleys including the Birkin Blower UU5872 when owned by Stanley Sears. Subsequently he worked on many BDC members' Bentleys which included famous ones like the Barnato Hassan 8 litre ;. 'Old Number One' Brooklands 8 litre, his own Speed Six YF 3984 and many others including the R-R Ltd Bentleys. this naturally brought Padgett Motor Engineers to the forefront of the technical and intricate development of reliable sports and racing Bentleys, and many others.

Padgett Motor EngineersBy 1964 a newly emerged class of post-war Bentleys were well known in racing, the Mk Vl sports and racing 'special'. The Bradley Brothers were the first to take this route and must be given full credit for such foresight.
Our first design, which proved to be popular, was built with a modified chassis design, to move the engine and transmission rearwards for the traditional sporting lines of a Bentley sports car, thereby setting a trend that has survived to this day. Over 45 varied sports Bentleys were built by us, using engines from S 1.s, 4.25, 4.5 litre versions, and even the V8s. Many have been used extensively for racing now and have been very successful too. Many 'specials' are still racing after 30 or 40 years constant use.

It was during this time in the mid 1970s that Jeremy started to work with his father. This was the perfect apprenticeship as Jeremy was surrounded by Bentleys from childhood. This ever improving class of Bentley sports car has paved the way for another style of Bentley now getting the head lines. The Bentley R Type. Continental Sports Saloon, upgraded to Rally Specification, of which some 12 have been rebuilt and proved to be a world-wide, highly sort after Bentley of any genre.

This project was instigated and carefully processed by the fabulously talented motor engineer, the late Christian Hueber, from Philadelphia. Together with Padgett Motor Engineers. Jeremy Padgett eventually took over full control of the business in 1995 when his father retired, after 54 years as a motor-engineer. Padgett Motor Engineers have contacts with the finest motor engineering specialised development firms world-wide and are constantly looking forward to new methods of performance and design enhancements for your Bentley driving pleasures.

This has allowed us to work on, restore, or rally prepare some 25 Continentals in the last 14 year period alone. These range from “standard” tourers, to the full rally modification. All have been successful in High Distance Tours and Retrospective Historic Rallies in Europe, Scandinavia, Middle East, and Asia, including the mountainous regions of the Pyrenees, Alps, Dolomites, and the Himalayas.

Cristiano Luzzago


After investing more than thirty years in the leading company in Italy in the sector of collectors’ vehicles I have decided to change to a new and independent course of activity.
I will naturally continue to dedicate my time to automobile collecting, a sector where I have developed wide experience and knowledge through a whole life of passion. Since the 1970’s and through into the growth of collecting I have managed all aspects of the world of classic vehicles: commerce, restoration and service workshop, spare parts, import and export.
As promoter of the first collectors’ vehicle auctions in Italy I adopted this primarily Anglo-Saxon merchandising tool in the role of organiser, selector and auctioneer. Simultaneously I created the idea of the first gallery of Italian motoring art. In the innovative sector of classic vehicle hire I organised motoring rallies and events, offering an original way for companies to motivate and instil trust in employees and clients alike.

With experience in the commercialisation of thousands of vehicles and management of the restoration of hundreds, I have a complete professional understanding of the world of classic automobiles.
In my new role as Consultant I am available for clients who require a stable contact to be able to operate in a risk and trouble-free manner within the often complex world of classic vehicle collecting.

Do not hesitate to contact me for information, advice, estimates or even simply just to chat between like-minded people. On the new web site every one of you will find interesting opportunities and signing up to the newsletter you will be updated on new initiatives, rallies, events and information from the world of classic vehicles.


If your commitments do not allow you to dedicate time to your collection I am able to guarantee operation with the maximum transparency and with your exclusive interests in mind. I receive payment only from the client who awards me a contract. If I am successful in acquiring the vehicle you are interested in at a lower than foreseen price, the saving is all yours.


If you would like to invest your money in a safe manner I can assist and advise you, indicating the direction which will best satisfy your requirements.


Cristiano LuzzagoThe capital is guaranteed through a real reference market
Management costs are contained and under control
Sale of the vehicle does not lead to any risk of loss
The annual financial performance is better than any other form of investment
No financial investment can ever give you the concrete pleasure of possessing and driving a classic vehicle.


If you require objective consulting and impartial information, thanks to my consistent and continued scanning of the market I am able to provide you with the updated values of your collection.


Many years spent in business have taught me to recognise good purchases and especially to know the real value of historic vehicles on the basis of commercial market business and not the generalised and often contradictory quotations in the sector publications.


If you have found a vehicle you would like to purchase but cannot decide if it is a good buy, I will make my technical expertise available to you. I will check for rust, any previous accidents and test drive as well as verify documentation and check chassis and engine numbers, guaranteeing a secure and safe investment.


The restoration of classic vehicles can be a great unknown for those outside the industry. It happens often that collectors themselves are uncertain as to whether to begin a restoration or let it go.

Unfortunately it happens many times that this realisation occurs at the half-way stage but by then it is too late.

It can also happen that after spending significant amounts of money you are faced with a completely disassembled vehicle without knowing with any certainty when the job will be finished. Restorations must be developed on the basis of a well-defined project that should be planned accurately with a completion date in mind.

I can also assist you in this field to avoid committing errors and according to the following guidelines:

Evaluation of the condition and importance of the vehicle
Choosing the restoration type (total, partial, commercial)
Planning the length of the project
Financial estimations of the restoration in the various specialisation areas
Contract costs management, work times and penalties
Choice of competent and well known specialists to whom the work can be contracted
Checking and verifying all the various phases of the restoration work
Management and co-ordination of the specialist areas
Optimisation and rationalisation of time and costs
Production of all documentation, including photographing work progress.
