Tyre info

Postby Ross2121 » Fri Nov 18, 2016 1:25 pm

Hello,

Please help me. I am helping a friend look for tyres for his car, a 1970s convertible and tyre size 155/70/14/, can someone guide me the best brands and where to get them? The best dealers? Cheap prices?

Looking forward to reading your comments!

Thank you

That isn't a standard size (lower profile) for a Minor 1000 so few owners will have experience. If you want that size again simply "google" it and see what options come up?
I have 155/80/14 Nankang tyres on my Minor which suit it well and were inexpensive. I bought them by mail order and, again, simply googled the size and bought from the cheapest source. I can't remember now who I purchased them from but there were several options. There isn't much choice of tyre manufacturers of that size but I prefer the Nankang to the Toyo tyre in terms of road behaviour.

Thank you for your reply!

I did do a Google search before coming here and this is what I found http://www.point-s.co.uk/tyres?width=15 ... =14&speed=
But I thought I should ask for more information on the brands available out there, I have also heard good things about NanKang, so I guess I will do a little more comparison before making any decisions

I have nankangs on my pick up and cannot fault them.
ESM list them and they are pretty cheap.
I got 2 a couple of years back from my local tyre fitter who ordered them in for the next day.
Be all you can be
