The Tyre Technology of Straight Sided Rims Explained

These oldtimer straight sided tyres differ from beaded edge tyres in that a solid wire in the bead ensures the bead cannot stretch and will always have a diameter slightly smaller than that of the rim.Straight sided vintage tires

Split Rim

Straight-sided vintage tyres (oldtimer tyres) are fitted to a rim which has a detachable flange on one side, or a split rim which can be reduced in diameter to aid removal and fitting.

Straight Sided Tyres FAQ

Q: What is the difference between a Split Rim Tyre, Straight sided tyre and high pressure tyres?

A: The split rim and straight sided are actually descriptive of the rim technology for these high pressure tyres. They both need to use the same tyre technology, and be run at high pressure with good quality inner tubes and flaps.

Q: What tyre pressure do you put in a straight side or split rim tyre?

A: You need high pressure. There is a clue in the name they are some times called high pressure tyres. We would suggest a minimum of 60psi, but predominantly 65psi and up to 70psi depending on the car. Higher pressure is less likely to fail.

Q: Do straight sided tyres need inner tubes?

A: Yes you need to fit the best quality inner tubes you can get with flaps to stop the inner tube getting trapped between the tyre and the rim
