Hi has any body experience of 16 inch wheels on a TR6

at present I am running 205/60/15 om my hill climb car and having 

problems finding road legal track day tyres.

I could go for 205/55/16 these would only be 2mm greater in OD

Any ideas?

Hi Eddie,

 

Have you looked into the Dunlop Direzza tyre, which I believe are road legal, with similar tread pattern to the Yokohama A048R.

 

Sadly, they only do these in: 215/50/15 - Not sure if these help ?

 

16" has been done, but don't think you need to go to that extent.

 

Cheers.

Hi Eddie

There are plenty of TR6s competing in Class 2 on 15inch rims so it shouldn't be difficult finding a decent tyre. Certainly agree with Tom (above).

Why not post a question on our Facebook page - I am sure you will get plenty of advice.

I personally use Vredestein Sprint Classic, they are the control tyre for the Jaguar XK race series so must be pretty good.
