Citroen Mehari 1968—1988

  • The only standard tyre to recommend for the Citroën Mehari is the 135 SR 15 Michelin ZX.
  • However if you find yourself wanting to take your Mehari through mud or snow, Michelin produces a 135 SR 15 Michelin X M+S tyre that will get you up those alpine slopes and muddy tracks.
  • The first generation Mehari was equipped with the same tyres as the Dyane 6. Our historical fitting manuals indicate that certain early Dyane automobiles were equipped with tube-type wheels, but starting in 1972 (possibly earlier), the Dyane was introduced with wheels designed for tubeless tyres.
  • Given the slimness of these tyres and Citroen's tubeless wheel technology of the day, we may encourage installing innertubes on tubeless variants as well, the condition of your wheels would also be a factor in deciding whether innertubes are the better option.
  • The correct tube for these tyres is the Michelin 15CB innertube.

History of the Citroën Mehari

Citroen Mehari Interior

Citroen Mehari Interior

The Citroën Méhari was a small off-road  SUV, a derivative of the Citroën 2CV. Between the car's French debut in May 1968 and the end of manufacture in 1988, 144,953 Méharis were produced. A Méhari is a fast-moving dromedary camel that can be utilised for racing or transportation. A méhariste was a cavalryman in the French Armée d'Afrique and Army of the Levant who drove these great old cars.

The Méhari was developed with parts from the Citroën Dyane 6 and had an ABS plastic body with a soft top. It also used the same 602cc flat-twin petrol engine as the 2CV6 and Citroën Ami. This is comparable to how the mechanical parts of the 1960 Mini became the mechanical parts of the 1964 Mini Moke.

From 1980 to 1983, a four-wheel-drive variant of the Méhari was developed, which had exceptional off-road characteristics due to the vehicle's light weight. The basic Méhari weighs 535 kg and is equipped with the linked fully independent long-travel 2CV suspension used on all Citroën 'A-Series' cars.
