they are for pick up only, no shipping, and I would think you could get new ones that would work just as well if not better, more so in the UK like you are, I bought some low rolling resistance 145/70R13 tires brand new in the USA a month ago and they were made in Holland, my 135/80R13 snow tires are made in Italy.
check out what the NEV electric cars use.

I'd run em. They are about the size of my Insight's tires. No idea on the condition of the rubber though

i just read my owners manual and it says the stock corsa is supposed to have 145 tyres on anyway! the last owner put on nice alloys. unfortunately they are 175's. might be worth a bob or two though?

I got my 145/70 R13 tires by talking to the most local Zenn dealer and they had the tires in stock, they were around $55 each, very quite (in an electric car you notice this), roll longer then my old tires, and are 44psi max side wall pressure.
