Independent Tyre Test - The Results
In the world of modern tyres it is common place to come across a tyre test. However in the world of classic tyres the investment never seems to be there to do a proper modern tyre test. However a German magazine in July 2016 conducted this modern tyre test using classic tyres. This classic tyre test has been translated from German to English. What is remarkable in this tyre test is quite how well the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 classic tyre performed in the table at the end. The scores in this table are not scored in relationship to the other tyres in the test, so when a score of 1 is recorded, then that is a perfect score for a classic tyre or a modern tyre. It is wonderful to see that these classic PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 tyres can give such exemplary results.
History of the Austin Allegro
The Austin Allegro, though featuring a good choice of engines, decent Hydragas suspension and five gears was sadly plagued (like many British Leyland cars of the time) with build quality and reliability issues. Still attractive to new classic car owners and its unusual looks have many admirers, with its quartic steering wheel being a somewhat marmite attraction (though this was dropped in 1974 when the SS model was replaced by the HL version).
