In the size 450X17 the Avon Tourist would be the most appropriate tyre for many of the cars that fitted the size 450X17, as Avons 450X17 Tourist is a genuine period tyre. The 450X17 Avon Tourist was fitted to cars such as Vauxhall 10HP, Morris 8 and Ford Popular and today the 450X17 Avon Tourist would still be the best tyre today.
The 450X17 Avon Tourist tyre is often found fitted to later 30's Austin 7 Ruby
cars. 450X17 is however too big for these cars. A 450X17 tyre will often rub the inner front wings. it is not unusual to find holes worn into the front wings of a Austin 7 Ruby due to fitting 450X17 tyres. We recommend fitting the 400/425X17 Longstone
tyre instead of a 450X17.
The Overall Diameter of the 450 x 17 Avon Tourist is 675 mm and the width is 118 mm.
