Triumph TR6 - Recommended Tire Size
|I'm about to sell off my Coker Redline tires and would like to hear from the masses on the favorite tire brand and size to run on our TR6's.|
It will not be run in snow, but, wet road handling is important along with dry road, noise and comfort.
|Somebody help Ken here. mine still got the 185/70's it was shod with in 94|
|Can't help you a whole lot Ken|
I have the Coker tires now ( since the car was restored in 2005) and can't remember too well what the michelins were like on it when it was on the road in the late 70's. I do seem to remember the michelins were a real nice ride. Don't know the size though - probably the 185 15.
Many brand are suitable. I prefer Pirelli Scorpion STR 205/70x15 rated H speed.
That size was recommended many years ago in former British Car mag. for TR6.
When I bought my TR6 the originals were Michelin XAS rated H also.

A lot of good info on tires here in the archives so you can read away an evening if you want. A popular choice on the forum here is 205/70 - 15. I'm running Yokohama Avid TRZ's and like them very much and prices at tirerack.com are good on these. Example of pricing; local dealer quoted me $167 each for the Yokes, plus shipping and a special handling charge. I bought the same tires from Tire Rack for $67 each and even with the $154 shipping charge to Canada they were a hell of a lot cheaper than local.
|Ken, Check out Khumho tires. Fairly inexpensive and I have them on my Wedge|
|I have 205-70 yokahomas on my 6|
|These come in handy.|
I will be going with the 205/70-15 Yokohama Avid TRZ's
