Triumph Stag Tyres
Here is what Longstone Tyres recommends based on your Triumph Stag tyre needs:
- 185HR14 Michelin MXV-P for a Triumph Stag (1970-1976)
- 175HR14 Michelin XAS for a Triumph Stag (Post-1976)
The Triumph Stag initially came fitted with 185R14 tyres. Presently the best tyre for a pre-1976 Triumph Stag is the 185HR14 Michelin MXV-P. In 1976 Triumph found that their Stag had improved handling when fitted with 175HR14 Michelin XAS, so they changed the standard fitment of the Stag to 175HR14 making this the best tyre for a Triumph Stag today.
Whitewall Triumph Stag Tyres
We are aware that many people want a tyre with a white band for this car, so we have sourced a 195/75R14 Hankook Whitewall with a 3/4" white band which is excellent value.

History of the Triumph Stag
Built between 1970-1977, the Triumph Stag was a convertible four-seater luxury sports car designed to compete with the Mercedes-Benz SL. However, for structural rigidity and to meet the new American rollover requirements a B-pillar was added that was connected to the windscreen via a T-bar. The car however suffered from mechanical unreliability (notably overheating) for which most owners replaced the engine entirely, some even putting in the Triumph 6-cylinder that the car was originally designed for.
