Ensign B5 450/475/500-20

Ensign B5 450/475/500-20

One of Dunlop’s most popular crossply tyre designs, the B5 became the default choice for many British saloon and sportscars from the 1930s into the post-war period. As such it remained in production for the classic-car market until Fort Dunlop finally closed in the 21st Century! It’s distinctive tread-pattern and square shoulder made it easily recognisable. Vintage Tyres have developed a replacement B5 pattern tyre via its historical relationship with Dunlop, and using original moulds. The result is manufactured in the UK as the Ensign B5, and is available in various sizes to suit 17, 18, 19 and 20 inch wheels.

This 450/475/500-20 size Ensign B5 is an ideal tyre for the Austin 12/4, and also fits the Alvis Silver Eagle, Firebird and Firefly 12, the Mercedes 370 and Riley Stelvio.

This is a tube-type tyre.
