Austin A55 Cambridge Tyres


With the Austin A55 Cambridge we at Longstone Tyres suggest a 165HR13 Michelin XAS FF or 590x13 Camac. After 1960 however the Austin A55 Cambridge should instead be fitted with 165X14 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ as a well suited tyre.

History of the Austin A55 Cambridge

The A55 Cambridge was introduced in January 1957 to replace the A50 model. It used the same 1.5 L B-Series engine as the A50, though with a higher compression ratio: 51 hp (38 kW) at 4250 rpm could now be tweaked out of it.

The Cambridge has a larger boot and much larger rear window than the A50. The car was also fitted with 13" tyres, which were smaller than those on the A50 but the overall gearing remained the same via changing the rear axle ratio so 165HR13 Michelin XAS FF are a perfect high quality equivalent to fit now. Two tone paint was also an option.

Just over 150,000 were produced when it was replaced by a new Pininfarina-designed A55 Cambridge for 1959. The car originally cost approximately £1161 (the equivalent of £24000 today).
