Triumph TR6

Triumph TR6 Tyres

Longstone Classic Tyres recommend the 165HR15 Michelin XAS or 165 HR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67 for your classic Triumph TR6.

We recommend the 165HR15 Michelin XAS for Triumph TR6's as it was original equipment tyre on a TR6. It is however also a top quality asymmetric sports car tyre that will make your TR6 handle superbly including improving it's directional stability. The other option would be the 165 HR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67; again this is a genuine period tyre made by one of the worlds best tyre manufacturers, the CINTURATO ™ will give excellent progressive predictable handling.

It is possible to fit lower profile tires to a TR6. Some people fit 185/70R15 or 195/65R15 tires to TR6 cars. If you want to fit a fatter tyre you have to accept that you will get more grip at the expense of light progressive handling. So we would recommend not going any wider than a 185/70VR15 tire. Also diminish the derogatory effects by fitting a period tyre that is developed in conjunction with cars of this period. We would suggest either 185/70VR15 Michelin XWX or 185/70 WR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 N4 with their rounded shoulders. Both are genuine period tyres developed to keep handling progressive.

Triumph TR6 History

The classic Triumph TR6 is a British six-cylinder sports car and the best-seller of the TR range built by Triumph when production ended in July 1976. This record was then surpassed by the Triumph TR7. Of the 94,619 TR6s produced, 86,249 were exported; only 8,370 were sold in the UK

The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the classic Triumph TR5, but the front and back ends were squared off, reportedly based on a consultancy contract involving Karmann.

All TR6 sports cars featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the US market the engine was carburetted, as had been the US-only TR250 engine. Like the TR5, the TR6 was fuel-injected for other world markets including the United Kingdom, hence the TR6PI (petrol-injection) designation. The Lucas mechanical fuel injection system helped the home-market TR6 produce 150 bhp at model. Later the non-US TR6 variant was detuned to 125 bhp in order for it to be easier to drive.
