Road/Race Cross-ply Vintage Tyres
Road/race tyres are designed to be used both on road and track. They will usually have a speed rating of H (130mph) or V (150mph).
Michelin's Englebert Tyre
Englebert tyres were the benchmark racing tyre in their period. The performance of these tyres was exceptional and many of the top F1 teams of the day equipped their cars with Englebert tyres including Ferrari, Lancia and Maserati.
Michelin decided to re-introduce the Englebert tyre in the 90's due to the demand from collectors. Once again the Englebert became a benchmark vintage tyre much used by classic racing cars; but only for a short time. Production ceased a few years later.
But we can now offer other vintage tyres that respond to the need for authenticity, safety and performance demanded by drivers of vintage and classic racing cars.
