- The original tyres on a Farina bodied Austin A40 were 520-13 Crossply tyres.
- The only tyre currently available in this size is the 5.20 x 13 Camac, a good option if you desire cross ply's that are gentle on the wallet, but for performance and driving experience we would instead suggest a radial tyre.
- The best Austin A40 Farina tyre currently is the 145HR13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67.
- The ideal Austin A40 Farina innertube for the 145 13 tyres is the Michelin 13CG.
- Some individuals opt to install broader 155 R13 Tires on their Austin A40 Farina either due to the unavailability of 145R13 tires or because they prefer a larger or broader tire. Should you choose to use 155R13 tires, the 155R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 makes an excellent option.

the Austin A40 Farina was a significant model for Austin despite its outward look. Built between 1958 and 1967 it was the first Pininfarina the famed Italian designers designed for BMC and the first two-box design. It was also one of the very first hatchbacks with its countryman estate variant despite its Pininfarina style. the first A40 was heavily based on the Austin a35 including the a35s hydro-mechanical brakes which were not replaced with real hydraulic brakes until the 1961 mark II model. The 1962 update would have a bigger 1098cc A-series engine in place of the standard 948cc.
