I have this Dunlop K70 4.00 x 18 tire that has been laying around my garage for 7 or 8 years. It was on a bike I bought which had been sitting in a hoarder/collector's building for at least 25 years. This tire was molded in Great Britain. If it is not unused, it has had very little use.The bike had a sump full of fresh oil and new pistons. I think somebody did some work, couldn't get it to run, then sold it to the hoarder. I can find no cracking on this tire. This would be the cat's meow for your 100 point trailer queen! I can't/wont ship this thing but I will be going to a couple of events this year and can drag it along. Or you can come and fetch it. Free to a good home. Or it's off to the shredder for it!

You can probably rest assured that 99.5% of people looking for a tire like yours are using it for restoration and show purposes only.
