Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience with these tyres , half the price of classic sprints ? Keith

I was anticipating replacing my tyres with the Classic. What is the difference apart from the price ? The car is used for rallyes rather than just touring.

I have them on my 4..... they  work really well and, as you say, half the price of Sprints. 

The downside is that the side-wall doesn’t look as nice .... but I prefer the extra pennies in my pocket (or in the fuel tank!)

As you may know, unless you have a shell with the later raised section boot floor your 165 tyre may or may not go in the spare wheel hole when inflated.

I replaced all my tyres with Trac 2s a few months ago. The sidewalks seem quite soft but that’s about my only criticism. They provide loads of grip even in the wet. Can’t comment on their durability because they are too new. 

Excellent value for money.

I have them on my TR3a, they may not be the best looking tire on a TR3 but they dont look horrible.

I use them too for some years now - they provide grip on dry as well as on wet Surface.

The grip level of my TR3A could be better - but this should be blamed on the Suspension, not on the tyres.
They were a great improvement over the Firestones I was using beforehand

Durabilty may be OK - I Change them for age, not for wear. Due to our last trips & some Trouble in the front suspension, I suffered stron wear on the outside shoulders of the front  tyres - the wear on the rear is quite low.  So with normal driving & Setup they should last some 20k miles

These are 165x15 T-trac on my TR3. For the most part the lettering on the sidewall disappears unless the tire is illuminated in a particular way. I tried to find a picture that shows the sidewalls.

Have Michelin XAS on my wires but for the winter i fitted these to my Knock-on Tinilites and they are a revelation. Like them a lot and the sidewall look while not a classic look is not too bad.

As a tyre, great do not walk the walk on the tread the way XAS seem to. I like them on my 3A.
