Triumph Renown Tyres
Triumph Renown 1946–1954
- The original fitment on a Triumph Renown was a crossply tyre in the size 575/600 - 16 Tyres. We would recommend the 6.00-16 PIRELLI STELLA BIANCA as the best crossply tyre for a Triumph Renown to fit today.
- However for those preferring Radial tyres (which are more suited to modern roads) a 185R16 Michelin X or a 185 VR 16 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 will not make the handling of the Triumph Renown too heavy whilst still being appropriately vintage and give the better directional stability and handling on today's faster roads.
- A set of 185 SR 16 Michelin X or 185 VR 16 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 is recommended by Longstone Tyres. Both excellent period radial tyres that will suit the Triumph Renown.
- The Renown fitted tube-type wheels, and the ideal tube for these tyres is the Michelin 16F innertube.

History of the Triumph Renown
Built between 1946-1954 with 15,491 being made, the Triumph Renown was the first car alongside the Triumph Roadster to bear the Triumph badge following Triumph's takeover by Standard. As a post-war car it was built from aluminium; which immediately after the war was cheaper than steel but the price points soon reverted making the Renown too expensive to produce. Models of the Triumph Renown include the Triumph 1800 Town & Country Saloon (1946-1949), Triumph 2000 TDA (1949), Triumph Renown Mk I TDB (1949-1952), Triumph Renown Limousine (1951-1954) and the Triumph Renown MK II TDC (1952-1954).
