MG MGB Tires

MGB Tires

In 1952 Pirelli developed the Cinturato CA67 tire. Many of the world’s top sports cars came stock with the Pirelli Cinturato including the MGB. The MGB took a 165HR14 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67 which is part of what made the MGB the desirable sports car that it still is today.

Often people consider it an upgrade to use an oversized tire on classic sports cars like the MGB. Low profile tires like the 185/70R14 have been available since 1968. MG chose not to fit low profile MGB tires because of the derogatory effect it would have on the steering making it heavier and less progressive.

Today we would suggest the first choice for a classic MGB tire would still be the 165HR14 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67. Also if you do want to fit wider low profile MGB tires, because you have wider wheels or you just think they look better, the Pirelli make the 185/70VR14 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36. The advantage to the CN36 on a classic car like an MGB is that they are tires designed to be fitted to a classic car chassis, so will not effect the handling of an MGB in such a derogatory manner like a modern tire carcass would do.
