Daimler V8 Saloon 1962–1969

  • The V8 2.5 Litre or Daimler V8 250 originally fitted 640 H 15 Dunlop RS5 crossply classic tyres, which are unfortunately not currently produced.
  • Radial tyres were also available in period and one of the radial options that Jaguar Daimler offered in period was the 185 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 that we would still recommend as one of the best options for the Daimler 2.5 litre V8 saloon today.
  • Our period Innertube Guides state that the V8 Saloon was released on tube-type wheels with innertubes. If you have original wheels then innertubes should be fitted, even if your tyres are tubeless.
  • For these tyres the Michelin 15F innertube is the best fit.
  • Another option for the Daimler 250 V8 that we have tried on a car we owned ourselves is the 180 HR 15 Michelin XAS. The asymmetric carcass and tread pattern makes cars of this period so much better suited to driving on today's modern dual carriageways, while at the same time staying nice and thin and keeping the steering light; which is valuable considering that the Daimler V8 250 Saloon generally came without power steering.
  • For these tyres the Michelin 15E innertube is the correct size.

History of the Daimler V8 Saloon

The Daimler V8-250, which was produced from October 1967 to 1969, was a minor facelift and re-naming of the 2.5 V8 saloons and differed in relatively minor details: slimline bumpers and over-riders (shared with the Jaguar 240/340, negative-earth electrical system, an alternator instead of a dynamo, and twin air cleaners, one for each carburettor. Padding over the instrument panel, cushioned door cappings, ventilated leather upholstery, reclinable split-bench front seats, and a heated rear window were among the other new features. Power steering and overdrive were available as options.
