1994 Vauxhall Cavalier
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 165 HR 13 Michelin XAS FF 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.
- 155 R13 and 165 R13 tyres would best fit an Michelin 13D inner tube.
- 175/70 VR 13 and 185/70 VR 13 tyres would best fit a Michelin 13E inner tube.
- From 1983 the Vauxhall Cavalier Sri 1.8 fitted 195/60R14. We suggest the 195/60 VR 14 Michelin MXV3-A.
- 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 2.5litre 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.
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.
