VW Beetle Tyres

Longstone Classic Tyres has a long and deep association with the VW Bug, in that it’s two oldest employees had Beetles as their first cars. One being a standard 1974 Jeans Beetle and a 1972 1300 Bug. It is great fun when you first get on the road, but when you are driving a Beetle then the world is an all round brighter place.

VW Beetle size

  • The first VW Beetle fitted 5.60-15 crossply tyres.
  • Standard radial alternative to 5.60-15 is 155 R 15
  • A slightly taller radial alternative is 165 R 15

For nimble light steering and sprightly acceleration then going with the standard 155R15 size will be the most fun tyre round wiggly roads. The 155 SR 15 Michelin X is the earliest tyre and was very much a tyre people fitted in period. Pirelli Cinturato 155 HR 15 CA67 Is a more sporty tyre in the size and was original equipment on all sorts of exotica such as a Lotus Elite or a Alfa Rome Giulietta. And the other top notch option would be the Michelin 155 HR 15 XAS.

Currently these days, because we spend so much time on dual carriageways, often people like to fit a taller tyre like the Michelin 165 SR 15 XZX. Again more sporty options like the 165HR15 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 are available. Also currently being made are 165HR15 Michelin XAS (1965) and 165VR15 Pirelli Cinturato CN36 (1968) which were fitted to cars like the Porsche 911 & 912 back in period.

White Wall Beetle Tyres

Because the Volkswagen Beetle is such a cool car there are still loads on the road and the knock on effect is there is plenty of choice in these sizes which includes some white wall tyres. The 155 R 15 Galaxy White wall & 165 R 15 Galaxy White wall are great value.

VW Beetle Tyre Prices

Currently we have on special offer a couple of real bargains for VW Beetle owners. There is an attraction to the Michelin XZX as it is a period tyre made for cars just like the beetle; relatively light weight and fun cars. The XZX offers good grip and comfort and the tread design of the XZX offers excellent wet road performance.

    Classic tyres are difficult to source here in the US. Cocker is always over-priced. If there is no "factory warranty" for US buyers it should be disclosed on the website . Personaly I've run XZXs for 47 years and made no warranty claims, so I'm OK with no warranty). \n\n

    As usual, great tracking with dhl so we could see when they were going to be delivered and could make provision or change the delivery. Great product, could not believe it was cheaper to buy these in the uk and have shipped to France. We run an interesting car club in Brittany with all types of cars

    Nice Tyre with period correct thread and superb handling for road use. Hugely improved handling over the same tyre that was just getting a bit old and brittle.

    I have not received the tires yet so I can not rate them. I suspect they will be very good since I've had them before.
