    Strange Tyre Size

    I need to find some tyres, at the moment it has 185/70 14. I beleave it should have 165 r14. Anyone know where i can get some, i need to buy 4 and don't want to have to pay to much. At the moment the 185's are to wide and are rubbing on the inside of the wheel arch.

    Cheers

    Thanks Coo,

    I had been looking there but have not found any. I shoudl have explained that i need these for the new toy i have just bought, a 1974 MGB GT. The correct tyre size for the car is 165 R 14. Every where i look i seem to be coming up with a blank. I woudl be happy to fit a more modern sized tyre if i can find one that matched all the dimensions, as the 185's that are on it are to wide, i can get 165/70 R14 but i beleave the aspect ratio will be to small then.

    http://www.camskill.co.uk/products.php?plid=m4b0s0p0 this is a very cheap site for tyres, they have from 165/60 up to 165/80, or 175's if you wanted something in the middle, all tyres around the £30 mark, though some for a bit less

    ......according to the MGOC parts ... they do a number of different sized tyres.....which I suspect would be interchangeable...

    Maybe worth giving them a call to discuss your options....

    165-80/14 will be your correct size. 175-75/14, and 185-75/14 will be pretty close to the correct rolling radius too.

    Thank you all, i will investigate a little more today. It is such a shame to change the tyres as all but one has good life left in them, but with 2 fat gits in the car the back tyres rub on every corner.

    Cheers
