Well TR6 owners, I guess this is bad news. I tried!

Unfortunately, it seems that the G800s aren't made anymore. The Vintage
Tyre Co in Brisbane did have a batch a while ago, and I've just spoken
to them . They say Goodyear have stopped making them here and the last
of the tyres have been sold. One batch went to another tyre company. I
called them but they were also sold. Looks like it'll have to be a
modern set, I'm afraid.
