Vauxhall Cavalier Tyres

  • The Vauxhall Cavalier mark 1 from 1975 to 1982 some fitted 165R13 tyres on 5” wheels however predominantly 185/70R13 tyres on 5.5” wheels.
  • We suggest either 165R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 or 185/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36.
  • The 185/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 was fitted to the performance models of the Manta.
  • The mark 2 Cavalier 1.3 Basic fitted 155 R13, for which we would suggest the 155 HR 13 Michelin XAS FF, with the 175/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 as an alternative.
  • Most of the rest of the MK2 Vauxhall Cavalier models fitted 185/70 R13, where again the 185/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 would be our suggestion.
  • The Vauxhall Cavalier came with tubeless wheels and tyres. However, you can fit an innertube if needed.
  • For 155 R13 and 165 R13 classic tyres the Michelin 13D is the correct size of innertube.
  • 175/70 VR 13 and 185/70 VR 13 tyres can fit a Michelin 13E innertube.
  • From 1983 the Vauxhall Cavalier Sri 1.8 fitted 195/60R14. We suggest the 195/60 VR 14 Michelin MXV3-A.
  • Tyres with a profile below 70% (e.g 195/60 VR 14 Michelin MXV3-A) should not fit innertubes.
  • Most of the Series 3 Vauxhall Cavalier could fit 195/60 VR 14 Michelin MXV3-A.
  • The 195/60 VR 15 Michelin Pilot Primacy 3 is ideal for many of the MK3 Cavalier 2.0 and 2.5 litre V6 models.

History of the Vauxhall Cavalier

Built between 1975-1995 the Vauxhall Cavalier was a restyled version of the second generation Opel Ascona with the "Drop-snoot" nose of the Opel Manta. Over 250,000 would be sold, though by 2009 there were just 373 registered remaining. When Airey Neave; the Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, was assassinated it was by a car bomb placed underneath a MK 1 Vauxhall Cavalier whilst leaving the Palace of Westminster. This is however the only notable example of a Vauxhall Cavalier exploding unexpectedly.

Q: What tyres did a Vauxhall Cavalier SRi fit?

A: The majority of Vauxhall Cavalier fitted 185/70R13 tyres. The Pirelli Cinturato CN36 was a tyre that some Vauxhalls of the period fitted and they are still produced by Pirelli today. However, in 1983 the 1.8-litre fuel injection model the Cavalier SRi fitted 14” wheels with 195/60R14 tyres. Fortunately, Michelin currently make an MXV3-A.
