Michelin TB5 R -Medium Compound 23/59-15 (265/40R15 92W)

Michelin’s TB5 tyre was developed in period as a semi-slick, tarmac rally tyre, part of its TB range of road legal competition tyres. Carrying less tread than the intermediate TB15, it is ‘E’ marked and road-legal. It is aimed primarily at rear-wheel drive classic rally cars, and is available in 2 different compounds. These are indicated by ‘F’ (front tyre compound) and ‘R’ (rear tyre compound).

Its unique pattern, and very aggressive stance make it an ideal, and period-correct tyre for many performance cars from the 1960s to the 80s including the Porsche 911 and Lancia Stratos. The TB5’s sizing marks are race/rally derived so for clarity we have put the closest standard size in brackets. If in doubt, please contact us to confirm appropriate sizing and fitments.
