Alternatives to 175-16 Tyres
175-16 Inner Tubes
A: fitting 175R16 tyres to an XK120, XK140 or XK150 will spoil the handling, it has the wrong type of carcass, and an unsuitable speed rating. Also a 175 R 16 tyre is too small for a Jaguar XK120.
A:We would suggest the only 175R16 tyre worth considering is the Michelin 5.50HR16 X. this is built for the AC Ace, AC Grey Hound & AC Aceca. However it is also an excellent radial tyre for pre war BMW 328.
