MG Midget

MG MIDGET TYRES


  • The MG Midget originally fitted 520 x 13 Crossply tyres
  • From 1972 the Midget fitted 145R13 radial tyres as standard equipment
  • We would recommend fitting 145 R 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67 radial tyres to all Midget's
  • Many people fit wider wheels and larger tyres in which case we suggest that 175/70R13 CINTURATO ™ CN36 (However the correct size is best. If wider tyres were better MG would have fitted them)
  • MG Midget 520-13 Crossply tyre pressure, we would suggest 18psi front and 24psi rear
  • Midget tyre pressure on radial tyres we would suggest 22psi front and 26psi rear

Midget Tyres

Although the little MG Midget originally fitted 520 x 13 Crossply tyres and arguably they will give a softer more comfortable ride, predominantly people tend to want to drive on radial tyre, because of the improved directional stability suited to our modern roads.
 
Today Pirelli make a 145 R 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67 which is just perfect for these charismatic little cars. The Midget's nimble handling will be complimented by the progressive handling of the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67, which is actual a period tyre with a carcass that is developed to suit the suspension and steering of cars from this period, opposed to just being a tyre of the right size. They are produced using modern quality control systems to ensure that these tyres are of the highest quality and use up to date modern compounds, so that the little tyre foot print is presented to the road in a period carcass will give the best possible grip, these advantages will be especially noticable by their performance in the wet.

Original Midget Tyres

Here is a snippit of a conversation from a forum about original Midget tyres that we thought might be interesting. It is worth pointing out that the Dunlop SP68 & the C41 are no longer made.:

“My handbook, an original one for a '69 Midget, shows either 5.20x13S nylon Gold Seal C41, tubeless or 145SRx13 SP68, tubeless. It doesn't say so in the handbook but I know both tyres were Dunlop.”

“I bought a February 1968 registered Midget in June 1969 which was fitted with Pirelli Cinturato tyres, I think they must have been fitted from new as I remember having to change them soon after I bought the car.

I sold the car in 1970 and bought it back again in 1999 as a wreck but I have fully restored the car back to original specification and still own it.”
