Rolls Royce Phantom 2
Rolls Royce Phantom 2 Tyres
- Longstone's recommendation for the early Rolls Royce Phantom 2 is the 7.00 x 21 Michelin D.R.
- Many of the early 1930 40/50 Phantom 11 Rolls Royce fitted 20” wheels to which we would suggest again fitting 6.50/7.00 x 20 Michelin DR.
- In approximately 1933 Rolls Royce switched the 40/50 Phantom onto 19” wheels. We would fit 6.50/7.00-19 Ensign.
- For all the Rolls Royce 40/50 Phantom 2 tyres the Michelin 19/20H inner tube offers the best fit.
- The body on a 40/50 Phantom Rolls Royce varies the pressure you would want to use 40 – 45 psi would be our suggestion.

Rolls Royce Phantom 2 History
The Rolls-Royce Phantom II was the third and final 40/50 hp model produced by Rolls-Royce, after the New Phantom in 1929. It was powered by an enhanced version of the Phantom I engine in an entirely new chassis. A 'Continental' variant was available, having a shorter wheelbase and firmer springs. The 7.7 Litre pushrod overhead valve straight-6 engine from the Phantom 1 was shared by the Rolls Royce Phantom 2, the final major six-cylinder Rolls Royce. The engine was a single unit with a four-speed manual transmission. In 1932, synchromesh was applied to gears 3 and 4, and in 1935, it was added to gear 2. Rolls Royce Phantom 2 semi-elliptical springs suspended the front and, unlike its predecessor, the back. Four-wheel servo-assisted brakes were also utilised. 281 Continental Phantom IIs were also built, with 125 of them being left-hand drive. In total, 1,281 chassis were produced.
