Yes they will fit on a 101 and there are a couple of people with them
(there are a few references to them if you search on here or the 101
I reckon that theyre as close in overall diameter to a 9.00x16 as you
can get in a normal metric size.
Craddocks sell a couple of different makes of this size tyre including
wildcat's i think.
I plan to buy a set of this size tyres for my 101 when i get it back
on the road.
