Austin Maxi Tyres


  • The original Austin Maxi 1485cc would run best on a set of 155 HR 13 Michelin XAS FF.
  • The 155HR13 Michelin XAS is a tube-type tyre and requires an innertube to function. We suggest Michelin 13D innertubes.
  • Longstone suggests that the 2200HL edition would suit a larger 165R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 tubeless tyres.
  • The Austin Maxi came fitted as standard with tubeless wheels and tyres.

History of the Austin Maxi

After BMC became British Leyland in 1968 the Austin Maxi was one of the first cars it put out under this new moniker from 1969-1981. Notable for being one of Britain's first hatchbacks, the Maxi featured rear seats that could fold down. The Maxi also featured the centre section from the Austin 1800/2200, with Hydrolastic/Hydragas suspension and five gears (sadly let down by the gearchange being absolute bottom).


Independent Tyre Test - The Results

In the world of modern tyres it is commonplace to come across a tyre test. Sadly 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 relation 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.
