Bristol 408 Tyres
- Even with the new V8 engine the Bristol 408 still fitted crossply tyres. We suggest 600-16 Stella Bianca as the best option.
- For those who want to fit radial tyres to their 408 we would suggest the 185VR16 Cinturato. You will gain the advantage of radial tyres without spoiling the handling.
- Michelin make a 16 F RET inner tube which is perfect for a Bristol 408.

History of the Bristol 408
Built between 1963-1966, the Bristol 408 was nearly identical to the Bristol 407 mechanically with the same new powerful V8 Chrysler engine. It diverged sharply however in changing the old 407's front end (which was based on the 406) to a more rectangular grille.
