SEC tires

82 SEC on factory Bundts. Not much to choose from in the 14Ē size anymore. Looking at Hankook Kinergy ST or General Altimax RT 43. Look wise, I donít like the General on this era car. I must kiss my Michelin MXV4s goodbye. Anybody bought tires lately?

Now that our cars are moving into the Classic category, we may have to consider Coker Tire, the go-to solution for vintage cars.

With no Michelins available I ordered a set of Hankooks. The fantastic indy shop I use like them, and they look less modern than the Altimaxs. Coker has BFGs that I like, but not on this car. Vredesteins are also out there, but look out of place in anything newer than an E type.

Hi

I think these Pirelli Cinturato CN36 were an option https://www.lucasclassictires.com/20...057014CN36.htm

And along with the XWX are currently the best

Good if you have an E type, nut IMO looks wrong on a 80s car.

Hmm! cant really agree.

CN36 https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/pir...rato-cn36.html was Pirelli's sports car tyre. In the same way if you had Michelin you still had XWX https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/mic...tyres/xwx.html or XDX. (incidentally for the nerds out there, i still have 2 old stock 205/70R14 XDX on one of my shelf. not for driving on!)

This is a 1984 Pirelli fitment guide.
