General Information
The #8 was a light track tub made of cotton. The tread was very thin. My father and I used them for time trialling and hard braking would result in the tread lifting and failing.
I remember a feint impression tread version and another the same but with a slight central raised tread about 6mm wide which was smooth.
I would estimate the width at 21mm. We used to put 120 psi in them. We both stopped using them on the back due to the lack of ability to survive braking.
They used to make a superb noise not really much less impressive than a silk.
