Default Need 5.60-14 size tyres

Hi,

I need 4 nylon / cross ply tyres

Size 5.60 -14
No of tyres = 5

With or without white wall, a white wall is preferred though

Any tyre gurus on the forum can let me know where it is available.

I hope someone can help me here.

Thats because you're searching in the wrong forum. The thread you really should have gone to is:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...tage-cars.html (Rubber trouble - Help Needed with Nylon Tyres for Classic/Vintage cars)

But let me try to help you out.

5.60X14 is an empirical size, no doubt for that British beauty you're restoring. In modern mm terms, the size of the tyre would come to approx 155/80 R14.

Option 1: If you want to fit a modern radial, Bridgestone used to make a S248 in that very size (155/80 R14) for the Premier Padmini. Must be still available in Mumbai.

Option 2: Try sourcing MRF Legend or Ceat for the Padmini. Will work out to be the same size.

Option 3: The most expensive option is to outsource a tyre in that size. Quite impossible to find, rather try finding an early 165HR14 radial, like a Vredestein or a Michelin X.
