David: Is it original? Leyland were still supplying trucks on solid tyres as well as the optional pneumatics in 1927...

To my eyes, these trucks looked a lot more rugged and purposeful when fitted with the solid disc wheels and relatively chubby pneumatic tyres.

Pneumatics were fitted in 1936. been on longer than the solids. 1 of the inside back tyres is of the 1936 set. Three of the others were taken off the back about a week before this picture was taken..81 year old tyres still working OK
