MGB Tires

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

Tires for MGB

Today we would suggest the tire of choice for an MGB would still be the 165HR14 Pirelli Cinturato CA67. Also if you do want to fit wider low profile tires, because you have wider wheels or you just think they look better, the Pirelli make the 185/70VR14 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 MG B in such a derogatory manner like a modern tire carcass would do.
