If you are looking for a 185R15 White wall tyre for one of these 1960s fast sports cars we would suggest getting the V rated black wall 185R15 XVS or V rated 185R15 Pirelli Cinturato and having a white wall built into the tyre, then you have a tyre with a speed rating suited to your classic sports car.
inner tubes for 185R15 whitewall Michelin XVS tyres
We say if in doubt fit an inner tube. The Michelin XVS 185R15 whitewall tyre can be run without an inner tube, if the wheel it is being fitted to is suited to being run without an inner tube. Nut many of these period wheel did not have the safety hump on its rim and often they are fitted to wire wheels which of course all benefit from an inner tube. We would suggest the best inner tube for 185R15 tyres would be the 15 F 13 Michelin.
The Overall Diameter of the 185HR15 Michelin XVS is 675 mm and the width is 186 mm. For more information on the 185HR15 Michelin XVS please see below or call +44 (0) 1302 711 123.
Maintaining White Wall or White Letter Tyres
Whitewall or raised white letters tyres will need continual maintenance; they are not a fit and forget item. You will need to keep the tyres clean, usually just with hot soapy water.
NEVER USE tyre shine products on Whitewall or RWL letters, many of these products have enhancers for black tyres that will discolour the white rubber permanently.
