OK. Thanks for replying.
To answer Pete's initial question as best I can at this point.
The earliest literature I've ever seen for Dandys is from the early eighties, before 6's were listed. All the Dandys ran on 520-10 crossplys and the given inflation figure was 26psi.
See this to confirm. If you save this image you can blow it up large enough to read. Actually the image is quite large and Ctrl + should suffice.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Then came the1982? brochure where the 6 was offered. The 6 was on 155/12 radials but still quoted as a 26psi inflation.

Then come several brochures or at least 2 showing brown/coffee coloured Dandys with a blue Austin Maestro on the cover.
This still lists 520-10 tyres for the smaller Dandys and the 155/12 for the 6 and with 26 psi throughout the range. The other brochure lists 30psi for the smaller Dandys still showing 520-10 tyres and 32psi for the 155/12 tyres on the 6.
These brochures still contain the piece saying that the Dandys are good for 95mph on the 10" tyres and 112 on the 12" ones. I can't find a current 520-10 tyre rated up to 95mph.
The early 90's brochure just lists the wheels as 10" or 12" but it does list the 10" at 30psi and the 12" as 32psi
There is a mid 90's brochure that gives the wheels sizes as 145/10 and the pressure as 30psi but white it lists the new Highside Destiny at 32psi it puts the tyre size down as 145/10.
This error is copied through to the specifications listed on Rivas website see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
BTW according to those specs it must have very large wheel arches on the current Destinys!
The mid nineties error in specing the Highside Destiny is the only time I've seen a 145/10 tyre with a 32psi inflation figure.
I've not exchanged notes with Avon yet but I'd hardly panic about an extra 2psi.
The difference between the crossply and radial inflation pressures is attributable to the radials having more flexible sidewalls.
In a while I'll probably move this thread to Dandy chat or technical as the thread isn't actually started with a piece of information.
