Been at the "OK, sort of" level for the past year or so.
But I'm thinking I may have under estimated the effect of tyre wear, and age as they are over 10 years old. Been getting the odd kick of anti-lock in the damp this year and Mr MoT man agrees with me that the tyres are coming up to their sell by date so this months pension will have to stretch to four new booties.
Currently researching to decide on a good 16" fit for road use. Local tyre man wants to sell me some Yokohama boots in a slightly off beat size and minimalistic tread pattern. Which isn't going to happen however good he thinks they are. Right now I'm tending towards Michelin Latitude Cross or Goodyear Wrangler as the tread patterns look effective without being off-road aggressive.
Amused to see that both Michelin and Goodyear have a C wet grip rating but the Goodyear claims to be specially developed to be good in the wet. O-Kay! Looking at the pictures the tread pattern on Mr Goodyears offering looks to be "bog standard for the last 40 odd years ever since they figured out snipes". Cynical moi asks "So where did all the development effort go.". Which may be good thing given how much a P38 doesn't have connecting the round rubbery bits to the car.
Asymmetric tread patterns always seem to me an invitation to the sort of issues that eventually lead to the death wobble.
Fundamentally modern tyre designs expect to see strut, or even wishbone, front set ups with the wheels moving in vertical arc controlled by relatively short links. Our rigid axles holding the wheels mutually upright put a rather different set of forces on the tyres under bump or roll which a tyre expressly designed to handle the (slightly) opposite and arcuate motion of independent front suspension may not cope with well.
We shall soon see.
