Singer Vogue 1961-1970
- The Singer Vogue I (1961–62), Vogue II (1963–64), Vogue III (1964–65), and Vogue IV (1965–66) were originally fitted with 590 - 13 or 600 - 13 tyres.
- The only crossply available for these sizes is the 5.90 x 13 Camac. As it is a budget crossply and no premium crossply tyres are currently made in this size we instead recommend fitting a radial tyre.
- Estate variants were fitted with 650 - 13 tyres. 650 - 13 is an uncommon size today and no crossply tyres are available in this size. The radial equivalent size is 175 R13. In this size we can offer the 175 SR 13 Milestar Whitewall.
- For the 1966-1970 Singer 'New' Vogue the tyre size had switched to a 560 - 13 crossply. The only tyre we offer in this size is the 5.60 x 13 Camac, but this is a budget crossply tyre, we instead recommend fitting a radial tyre.
- 165 R13 is a radial tyre size that will fit nicely in place of 5.60 x 13 and 5.90 x 13 crossply tyres. In this size we can recommend the 165R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36.
Singer Vogue Innertubes
- Our 1972 Michelin Fitment Guide suggests that all post 1967 Vogue cars came with tubeless wheels, and all models before require innertubes. See our Innertube Guides below for more information.

- For 175 R13 tyres we suggest the Michelin 13E innertube.

Singer Vogue History
1963 Singer Vogue Saloon
Singer Motors, a British automobile manufacturer, produced the Singer Vogue, a series of compact cars that were manufactured from 1961 to 1970.
The initial generation of the Singer Vogue, referred to as the Singer Vogue I/II/III/IV models, made its debut in July 1961. These models were a derivative of the Hillman Super Minx and held a superior position in the Rootes Group range, surpassing the Super Minx and Singer Gazelle. The Vogue featured quadruple headlights and a more robust 66 bhp version of the 1,592 cc Minx engine. The 1963 launch of the Series II brought forth front disc brakes, interior enhancements, and the removal of the chrome bonnet strip, along with the introduction of amber front indicator lenses.
In 1964, the Series III was released, incorporating a six-light bodywork design and an improved power output of 84 bhp. The final iteration of this generation, the Series IV, premiered at the 1965 motor show, sporting an increased engine size of 1,725 cc while maintaining the same power output. The first generation Vogue was available in both four-door saloon and estate car variants.
During the 1966 British International Motor Show, the second generation Singer New Vogue was unveiled. This model, derived from the Rootes Arrow saloon, positioned itself as a more upscale option compared to the Hillman Hunter. Equipped with the same 1,725 cc engine, it also stood out as the first British car to feature rectangular headlamps. An estate version of the New Vogue was introduced in April 1967. However, despite its success, the Singer Vogue, along with all other Singer models, ceased production in 1970, making way for the short-lived Sunbeam Vogue.
The Singer Vogue garnered recognition not only for its design and model variations but also received the esteemed "Car of the Year" title from the Scottish Motoring Writers Association in 1966, emphasizing its popularity and triumph in the market.
Though the Singer Vogue received acclaim, it faced fierce competition from European manufacturers like Ford and Vauxhall, particularly in the compact car segment. These challenges, combined with Singer Motors' financial difficulties, eventually led to the discontinuation of the Vogue. Nonetheless, the Singer Vogue remains an iconic representation of the 1960s era.
