13" tires
« on: October 08, 2019, 06:47:39 AM »
I just purchased OEM alloy wheels for my 1980 TR8.B  What tires do you

recommend?

Is this the correct size?B  185/70 13

I am considering Kumho Solus.

Anyone have any experience with Nankang CX668?

Any other to consider?

I have the Nankings on my car. It's pretty much the only choice in H

speed rated unless you can find (and pay for) the Vredsteins. I've been

pleased with them. The Kuhmo Solus is also a good tire.

I have the Nankings and I was pleasantly surprised how well the tires

handled when I was going too fast on a dark and rainy night and went into a

sharp curve with my TR8.

Yes, 185/70-13 is the correct OEM dimension for a TR8.



My personal view is:

As long as they are round, not octagonal, they're good enough for an old

Triumph.

Those that are not round --- are made for MG's...  ;-)
