Opel Kadett 1936–1940


  • The first Opel Kadett series A fitted either 6.00-12 or 590 - 13 tyres. The 5.90 x 13 Camac is the best available tyre in this size.
  • The ideal 13" innertube for this is the Michelin 13CG innertube.

  • Opel Kadett 1962–1993


  • For the Kadett A from 1962 to 1965 we suggest fitting a set of 155R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 or 155 HR 13 Michelin XAS FF tyres.
  • From 1965 to 1973 the Kadett B fitted either 6.00-12 crossply tyres or 155R13 radial.
  • We suggest fitting 155 HR 13 Michelin XAS FF on the Kadett B.
  • These tyres would best fit an Michelin 13D innertube.
  • The series C Opel Kadett 1973 to 1979 fitted either 155HR13 Michelin XAS on 5” wide wheels or 175/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 on 5.5” or 6” wide wheels.
  • From 1978 tyre fitment guides state that the Opel Kadett GT/E and the 1.2 Kadett Coupe Rallye fitted larger 5.5” or 6” rims with 175/70R13 tyres as standard.
  • 175/70VR13 tyres would best fit a Michelin 13E innertube.
  • Our historic Innertube Guides state which models switched over to tubeless wheels and when they made the switch. See below to find your make and model.
  • Have a look at our Innertube Page for more information, or contact us by phone or email if you're still unsure about your car wheel requirements.
  • The Kadett D of the early 1980s, continued to fit 155R13 tyres to the base models, and 175/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 to the sporting models.
  • The later Kadett D 1.3, 1.6SR and 1.8i GT/E fitted 185/60R14. Michelin make a 185/60 VR 14 Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2, which is perfect for the later Kadette.
  • Tyres with a profile below 70% (e.g., 185/60 VR 14 Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2) should not fit innertubes.

History of the Opel Kadett


The Opel Kadett is a compact family car manufactured by the German automaker Opel from 1936 through 1940, and then again from 1962 to 1991. The first Opel automobile with the Kadett brand was shown to the public in December 1936 by Opel's Commercial-Technical Director, Heinrich Nordhoff, who would later become noted for his leadership role in the development of the Volkswagen corporation. The new Kadett, like the pioneering Opel Olympia, used a chassis-less unibody structure, implying that the Opel Kadett, like the Vauxhall 10 launched in 1937 by Opel's English sister-company, was meant for high volume low-cost manufacture.


Q: What tyres does an Opel Kadett fit?

The first Kadett Opels fitted 12” or 13” crossply tyres, which then changed to 155R13 radial tyres, and very soon the more sporting models were fitting 175/70VR13 Pirelli CN36 Cinturato. The later Kadett moved onto 14” wheels and 185/60R14 tyres.
