Blackcircles.com stocks a great range of tyres suitable for classic cars from several leading brands.

What is a classic car tyre?

Classic car tyres are tyres that are still in production and suitable for vehicles which have been made between the late 1920s and early 1980s

Different Types of Classic Car Tyres

There are four types of classic car tyre; Beaded Edge tyres, Wired-on Tyres, Cross-ply Tyres and Radial Tyres.

Beaded Edge Tyres – mostly found on vintage European cars – have large ridges of hard rubber round the tyre that were designed to hook to the wheel’s rim.

Wire-on tyres are similar to the previous Beaded edge tyres, with the key difference being that wire-on tyres had a wire within the beads in order to stop it from stretching and ensuring it won’t come off the wheel.

Cross-Ply tyres were designed with ‘superimposed layers of textile cord running at alternate angles from bead-to-bead’, meaning that the sidewall and tread became one rigid structure.

Radial Tyres are created with ‘ply cords that radiate at a 90 degree angle from the wheel rim’ which enable better vertical flexibility while maximising the amount of contact with the road and ensuring better handling.

Tyres made for fitment of classic cars typically meet the F.I.V.A. definition of a classic car:

• Minimum of 30 years old
• Not intended for daily transport use
• Conserved in a historically accurate condition

The size of a tyre is printed onto the side of the tyre – on the area known as the sidewall. When looking for the size, you will see that it is made up of a series of numbers and letters.
