I managed to trip the car when I was sliding sideways around 50 to 60 MPH. I guess the tire might have been a bit low as the rim edge just caught the runway slab edge, that's all it took to send it on at least 3 or maybe 4 rolls. Normally it would just slide until the speed scrubbed off.

Looks like you got your wheels from the same place I got mine, what sort of rubber did you get and did you also get the rubber from JBW? When I ordered mine I found there was little to no decent 13 inch tires available in North America. I ended up getting these wheels and tires from them, I thought it was a reasonably priced deal. I have not yet installed them on my Anglia as my car is still in the build process.

That is getting pretty close to the stretch limit for that rim/tire combination. I bet it makes the profile a bit low.
