[MV] Directional tyres

Hi List,

Does anyone know whether directional (ie., chevron pattern) tyres in WW2
military sizes (9.00x16, 7.50x20, 10.50x20, etc) are still made anywhere in
the world.

A friend of mine got some new directional 10.50x16" tyres from Dick Cepek many
years ago but they were probably the last in captivity. The occasional NOS WW2
tyre turns up but the rubber is usually too hard after all these years for
serious road use.
