Peugeot 301 Tyres
Classic and vintage fitment guides do not always agree on the specifications of certain vehicles, and this is the case for the Peugeot 203, with one source stating that the 301 ran on 14X45 tyres, and another that it used 14X40 tyres. If you own a 301 we would love to find out about the specifications to make our information more accurate and helpful.

History of the Peugeot 301
The Peugeot 301 is a large four-cylinder family automobile manufactured by Peugeot between 1932 and 1936. Despite variations in body design during the life of the Peugeot 301, the engine configuration stayed the same: a 1465 cc four-cylinder water-cooled powerplant. The 301D has a maximum power of 35 bhp at 4000 rpm, with passenger vehicle top speeds ranging from 50 to 62 mph depending on body style. The top speed of the considerably taller 301 vans did not surpass 44 mph. Although an electric starting motor was installed, manual cranking was still available, as was customary at the time. The 301 was equipped with independent front suspension from the start, making it one of the first mass-produced vehicles to do so, and it benefited from superb road holding as well as much less steering column vibration by today's standards. 70,497 models were manufactured in total.
