Ensign B5 700-17

Ensign B5 700-17

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 700-17 size Ensign B5 is an ideal tyre for the: Delage D8-100;  Voisin C30; various 1930s Packards, and the Studebaker President 8.

This is a tube-type tyre.
