VW Type 3 Tyres
- For any Volkswagen Type 3, whether it is the Volkswagen 1500 or the Volkswagen 1600, a set of 165 SR 15 Michelin XZX is recommended as the best choice by Longstone Tyres.
- For these tyres Longstone recommends the Michelin 14D inner tube.
- Inner tubes are not essential for these tyres, but they can still be a great option compared to going tubeless. For more information, see our inner tube guide.

History of the Volkswagen Type 3
Built between 1961-1973 the Volkswagen Type 3 was a 2-door compact car that used the familiar Volkswagen design of being air-cooled, rear-engined and rear-wheel drive. Originally the car was only available with a 1500 engine, with variations including the notchback and estate/squareback before the 1600 engine was introduced in 1965 along with the Fastback/TL version of the car.
