600H16 tyres

600H16 Avon Turbospeed
600H16 tyres were very popular tyres for the top not cars of the '50s. Cars such as Aston Martin DB 2/4 and Aston Martin DB4 fitted the 600H16 Avon TurboSpeed. This particular Avon 600H16 is H speed rated. In period this same 600H16 tyre was capable of a V speed rating. The 600H16 Avon TurboSpeed is still of as good quality as it was back in the '60s the difficulties are that the goal posts have moved when it comes to speed rating cars.

600H16

600H16 is a cross ply tyre. often a lot of the cars that would have fitted a 600H16 want to fit a radial alternative to make their car more suited to today's roads. A 185R16 is a radial alternative to a 600H16, but as you can see from the picture above some modern radial tyres have a very different shape to a 600H16 crossply. On the left is the 185VR16 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™. This is a genuine period tyre that you could specify in the day from Aston Martin for fitment to your DB4 instead of the standard 600H16 Avon TurboSteel crossply which is shown in the middle of the picture. The only other period tyre available as a radial alternative to 600H16 is the Michelin X 185SR16.

The Overall Diameter of the 600 H 16 Avon Turbospeed is 710 mm and the width is 180 mm. For more information on the 600 H 16 Avon Turbospeed please see below or call +44 (0) 1302 711 123.

    Its the correct tyre for my classic car. I think it is of average quality for a crossply tyre.

    Not the best performance tyre but as this is an important historic car it needs a period tyre as delivered.
