Lotus Elan

Elan +2 tyre quandary

PostPost by: normanjsmith » Wed Feb 10, 2016 10:36 am

I am still procrastinating but preferring grip and responsiveness will probably go for 185/65 X 13 or 175/70 X 13 rather than 165 X 13.

Has anyone here fitted 185/65 X 13 and if so, how are they?

How sticky is the compound and what sort of tread pattern to match the intended use is probably more important than size of the tyre as long as the diameter matches the intended top speed normally used
