Renault 4 Tyres
1981 Renault 4
Renault 4 1961–1992
- Renault 4 originally fitted either 135 R13 or 145 R13 tyres.
- Unfortunately there is not currently a period 135 R13 tyre. We would instead suggest a set of 145HR13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 as the best tyre for a Renault 4, 4L or 4TL.
- The ideal tube for these tyres is the Michelin 13CG innertube.
- Some Renault 4's may have fitted 155 R13 Tires either because 145R13 tires are hard to come by or they want a tire with more width.
- If you're weighing the 155R13 size, the 155R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 is a noteworthy option.
- The Michelin 13D the ideal innertube for 155R13 tyres.
- Suggested tyre pressure for a Renault 4 - 22psi front and 26psi rear.
Our period Innertube Guides suggest that on 1983 some models transitioned to tubeless wheels. Innertubes are not needed for these tyres. All models before 83 (and some after) fitted tube-type wheels and therefore need innertubes. See below to find your model and wheel type.

History of the Renault 4
The Renault 4, sometimes known as the 4L, is a compact budget car manufactured by Renault from 1961 until 1994. Although advertised as a small station waggon, the Renault 4's minimum rear overhang and single top-hinged rear opening made it the first mass-produced hatchback ever, as well as Renault's first front-wheel-drive family car.
The vehicle was introduced in France during a period of increased wealth and rising car ownership. The first million automobiles were made on 1 February 1966, four years after its launch; eventually, over eight million were created, making the Renault 4 a commercial success due to its timing and design virtues. The Renault 4's 33-year manufacturing run was ranked as the sixteenth most long-lived one-generation automobile in history in early 2020.
