(s) Recommended increase in pressures for sustained high speed motoring, (Remember there was no speed limit in the U.K. until the 1960's and all fitments were Crossplies) With today's Radial tyres there is no need to advise varying pressures.

* I have confirmed this marked increase in rear pressures in three separate publications, it coincides with Triumphs revised rear spring arrangement, and the pressures are correct.

All the above Radial Tyre Pressures are for the Standard Fitment i.e. that listed here, for a non-standard fitment contact the Tyre Manufacturer.

It is possible that exported TR' s were fitted with rims and tyre other than these stated here, accurate pressures need to be confirmed in the relevant country, from the relevant Tyre Manufacturer.

I was unable to confirm MICHELIN OE listed pressures for thr TR7, consequently this is left blank.
