MG TD Tyres


    1954 MG TD

    1954 MG TD

  • The MG TD was equipped originally with 5.50x15 tyres, a size that currently does not have any appropriate tyres available.
  • If you would like to fit a radial tyre 165-15 Tyres or 155-15 Tyres are the most appropriate sizes for the MG TD.
  • 155 - 15 tyres are the same width of tyre as the original crossply, generally allowing for better handling and lighter steering. 165 - 15 tyres are the same diameter as the original crossplies, which will keep the gearing and ground clearance the same as it was when designed and run on crossply tyres.
  • Our recommended 155 tyre is the 155 TR 15 Michelin X.
  • Longstone's recommendation for the TD is either the 165 SR 15 Michelin XZX or the 165-15 Michelin XAS.
  • For these tyres we recommend the Michelin 15E inner tube.

History of the MG TD

The 1950 TD Midget, introduced in January 1950, combined the TC's motor, a modified hypoid-geared rear axle, the MG Y-type chassis, a familiar T-type form body, and independent front suspension utilising coil springs from the MG Y-type saloon. The TD also had smaller 15-inch disc type road wheels, a left-hand drive option, and standard bumpers and over-riders. The automobile was also 5 inches wider and had a 50-inch track.

The TD MkII Competition Model was debuted in 1950, with the regular vehicle, and had a more finely tuned engine with an 8.1:1 compression ratio, producing 57 bhp at 5,500 rpm. The higher compression ratio engine was designed for export markets and would not have been accepted for the UK, where consumers were still limited to 72 octane "pool petrol" due to the prolonged enforcement of wartime fuel restrictions. The TD MkII also included dual fuel pumps, extra Andrex dampers, and a higher ratio rear axle.

When the series concluded in 1953, about 30,000 TDs had been manufactured, including around 1700 Mk II versions, with all but 1656 exported, 23,488 of them to the United States alone. In 1952, The Motor magazine evaluated an example that had a peak speed of 77 mph and could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 18.2 seconds. Fuel usage was calculated to be 26.7 miles per imperial gallon.
