Lancia Lambda Tyres
Lancia Lambda at the Trieste Opicina Hillclimb on 16 June 1929
Lancia Lambda 1922–1931
- The first Lancia Lambda fitted beaded edge 765 - 105 Tyres. We recommend the 765 x 105 Excelsior.
- All cars of this era fitted tube-type wheels, so innertubes are required.
- These tyres should ideally be fitted with a set of Michelin Central Valve 820X120 innertubes.
- In the Mid ‘20s some Lambda fitted a low pressure beaded edge tyre in the 775X145 size. This tyre is no longer made.
- In ‘28/’29 Lancia moved the Lambda onto 50cm wheel Michelin Bibendum wheels. We would recommend fitting the 14/15/16 x 50 Ensign F4.
- The suggested innertube for tyres in this size is the Michelin 20H Central Valve innertube, or the Michelin 20/21CD Offset Valve innertube, depending on your wheel type.
- Often the Lancia Lambda has had it’s wheels changed to more generic imperial sized wheels. Depending on your wheel size we would recommend either the 5.25/6.00 x 19 Michelin D.R., the 6.00 x 20 Lucas, or 5.25 x 21 Lucas.
- For these tyres the Michelin 19/20H innertube offers the best fit.

History of the Lancia Lambda
The Lancia Lambda is an innovative car that was manufactured by Lancia from 1922 to 1931. It was the first automobile to have a load-bearing unitary body (but no stressed roof), and it was also the first to employ independent suspension (the front sliding pillar with coil springs). Vincenzo Lancia even designed a shock absorber for the vehicle, which also featured outstanding four-wheel brakes. There were approximately 11,200 Lambdas made spanning 9 different iterations.
