Rolls Royce New Phantom Tyres

  • The Rolls Royce New Phantom 1 fitted 700 - 21 tyres.
  • The 7.00 x 21 Michelin D.R. is Longstone's recommendation, as it gives the best grip and most comfortable ride.
  • The 7.00 x 21 Ensign F4 is another good option. Designed as a copy of the 7.00 x 21 Dunlop F4, a period tyre that is no longer produced. The Ensign will offer the best stability and longevity.
  • The Phantom requires innertubes, and for these tyres the Michelin 19/20H is the ideal innertube.
  • A suitable tyre pressure for a New Phantom 1 Rolls Royce would be 40 – 45 psi depending on the body.

Rolls Royce Phantom 1 History

The Phantom 1, like the well-known Ghost, was built in both the United Kingdom and the United States, with the US model being introduced one year later. The new pushrod overhead valve straight-6 engine was a significant upgrade over the Silver Ghost. The enormous engine, built as three groups of two cylinders with removable heads in extremely sophisticated and state-of-the-art technology for the time, generated excellent power to draw the large heavy automobile. The engine had a 414-inch bore and a 512-inch stroke for a total displacement of 7.7 Litres. In 1928, aluminium was used in place of cast iron in the cylinder heads.

Front suspension was provided by semi-elliptical springs, while the rear suspension was provided by cantilever springs. 4-wheel servo-assisted brakes were also required, however, some early US vehicles did not have these. The available wheelbases differed between the US and UK versions; both were specified with the same 143.5 base length, but the UK long-wheelbase model was longer at 150.5 inches than the 146.5-inch American version. Other distinctions included the gearbox, with UK versions employing a 4-speed manual gearbox and American models employing a 3-speed manual gearbox, both with a single dry-plate clutch. The UK Phantoms were constructed in Rolls-Derby Royce's plant, whereas the US Phantoms were built in Springfield, Massachusetts.
