Post New Member - 1959 190B

Hello, new member from Tasmania Australia... Just purchased a 1959 190B. I am looking for some advice on the type of shock absorbers to fit it and also the type of tyres for general road use. Thanks

Hi. Have a 55 220A myself. Try the Vintage section or

I have cheap 185 / 75 / 13's on mine for everyday use and a set of period cross plys that I sourced in England for use at shows (for that original look).

The modern tyres make the car sit lower on the road and don't fill the arches as much, some don't like it but I do.

Good luck.
