NSU Ro80 Tyres

  • The original tyre for the NSU Ro80 is the 175 HR 14 Michelin XAS and is recommended by Longstone Tyres.
  • The Michelin XAS in period was an expensive tyre. Car manufacturers only fitted it because it dramatically improved the handling of the Ro80.
  • The Asymmetric carcass and tread of the XAS improves the directional stability of a classic car.
  • People often fit modern, low-profile tyres, because they are cheap, but it compromises the handling of the NSU significantly.
  • Wide low-profile, or modern section square shoulder tyres will cause an NSU Ro80 to track on rutted dual carriageways.
  • If you want a lower-profile tyre the 195/70 VR 14 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 provides the benefits of a lower-profile tyre while maintaining the classical construction and rounded shoulders required for classic cars.
  • The Ro 80 fitted either steel or aluminium wheels; steel wheels are suitable for tubeless tyres, but the aluminium wheels require innertubes to function.
  • If you need innertubes for 175R14 tyres we suggest an Michelin 14E innertube.
  • If you require innertubes for 195/70R14 tyres we suggest an Michelin 14F innertube.

History of the NSU Ro 80

Built between 1967 and 1977, the NSU Ro 80 was a technologically advanced large 4-door sedan that was front-wheel drive with a semi-automatic transmission. Due to construction faults in the engine, however, it soon gained a reputation for unreliability, that led to problems with NSU's finances and its acquisition by Volkswagen in 1969, despite it being voted Car of the Year in 1968.
