Morris Marina

Morris Marina Tyres

  • The first MK1 Morris Marina fitted 5.20-13 Dunlop Crossply tyres onto a 4.5” wide rim.
  • The Dunlop is no longer made. 145R13 is the radial equivalent to 5.20-13 crossply.
  • The 145R13 Pirelli Cinturato CA67, is the best tyre for these cars now, as it was back in period.
  • In 1974 the Morris 1.8 Litre Marina TC were fitted with 155R13 Dunlop SP Sport Aquajet, Or Michelin XZX.
  • We would suggest that the 155HR13 Michelin XAS is a fantastic tyre for the MK Marina.
  • The Morris Ital, from 1980 to 1984 fitted 155SR13 Michelin XZX.
  • Suggested tyre pressures for these Models of the Morris Marina are 26psi front and 28psi rear with more detail here.

History of the Morris Marina

Built between 1971-1980 the Morris Marina was one of Britain's most popular cars throughout the 70's, due to clever targeting of company fleet car buyers and average-income families. Though an astonishing 807,000 Marinas were sold in Britain it is estimated that there is less than a 1,000 still on the road, being one of the most-scrapped cars in the UK. It suffered as well from poor rust-proofing and being sought after for cheap & easy performance parts upgrades for everything from Morris Minors to Midgets and Sprites.
