Austin Cambridge Tyres
- The Austin A40/A50 Cambridge before 1960 is most suited to driving on a set of 165R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 or 5.90 x 13 Camac if you require crossplies.
- With models produced after 1960 the Austin Cambridge should instead be fitted with 165 HR 14 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67.
- For the Austin Cambridge A55/A60 however models made before 1960 would best suit 155 HR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67.

- For 165-14 Tyres the Michelin 14D innertube is Longstone's pick.

- Innertubes are not essential for most radial tyres, but they can still be the better option when compared to going tubeless. For more information, see our innertube guide.

History of the Austin Cambridge
The Austin Cambridge featured a big leap forward for Austin and how they produced their mid-sized cars, with them finally adopting monocoque construction with the Cambridge saloons that they built from 1954 till 1958. The A40 was the bottom of the range, using the same 1200cc engine from the A40 Somerset leaving it feeling slightly underpowered. This was compared to the next in the range, the A50 with its 1489cc 50bhp engine. The A55 featured no engine improvements but did feature a larger boot, fledgling fins and a larger rear window. Also the basis for van and pick-up forms, the Cambridge continued being produced in these latter variants up until 1971.
