NSU Ro80 Tyres


1976 NSU Ro 80 BJ

1976 NSU Ro 80 BJ

  • 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.
  • People often fit modern more low profile tyres, because they are cheap, but it does compromise the extraordinal NSU.
  • The Asymmetric carcass and tread of the XAS improves the directional stability of a classic car.
  • Wide low profile or modern section square shoulder tyres will cause an NSU Ro80 to track on rutted dual carriageways.
  • If you need innertubes we suggest an Michelin 14E inner tube.

History of the NSU Ro 80

Built between 1967-1977 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.
