Tyres for +2 5.5inch 13 inch wheels

PostPost by: Roy Gillett » Mon May 11, 2009 4:04 pm

I have a set of slightly worn 175/70R 13 Falken 07U tyres for sale from my +2 ELan standard wheels. These tyres are in excellent condition with less than 4000 miles use and still with at least 5mm tread depth. They are fine for normal road use (if a little sqealy) but I have treated myself to a set of breathtakingly expensive Michelein XAS FF's for Classic Rallying. These tyres are almost exactly the same diameter as the standard 165/ 13's and fit without problems under +2 wheel arches while giving a larger contact patch.

I don't expect much for them Make me an offer. Buyer collects or arranges transport. I am based in Surrey / South London.

Hi. I'm in Portsmouth so could collect them. Did you have to modify anything to fit them to your plus 2, ie rear spring seats, or front wheelarch bodywork? Would £10 be OK only it won't be cheap to get them fitted.
Thanks alot, Paul

Were the XAS FF worth it?
