A member posted a query on Facebook saying "can anyone share with me what tyres they have on their MGBGTV8 please? I have a '73 V8 that's been in the garage for 12 years and this is the year she comes out of hibernation. On at the moment are 175 80 R14T and I've found some Continentals at a reasonable price but should I be looking for a different brand? Are you running 175 or 185s? Quite like an 'old style' tread and not too keen on budget brands".

There is a section on replacement tyres on the V8 Website - it can be seen by simply typing "replacement tyres" in the search box on the homepage. That powerful resource is needed as the V8 Website has approaching 4,000 webpages and PDF documents but it works rapidly and is very easy to use.

The first item shown by the search results is a link to our Information Gateway on replacement tyres with "Members' views on replacement tyres".
