Avon Turbosteel 165/80R16 88H (550R16)

£178.00 exc VAT £213.60 inc VAT

Avon released this version of the Turbosteel radial tyre in the 1980s as a radial replacement for popular crossply sizes of the 1950s and early 60s, particularly those fitted to higher-performance vehicles.

Now produced in two sizes to replace 550-16 and 600-16 crossply sizes, the CR6D provides all the advantages of radial construction in a tyre that evokes the look of period-performance crossplies. These tyres will be slightly wider and lower than many of the original crossply tyres in an equivalent size. 

This 165HR16 size Avon Turbosteel is an ideal radial replacement tyre for: Bristol 400, 401, 402 and 404; Triumph Roadster; AC Ace, Aceca and Greyhound; Sunbeam 90, MkIII and Alpine; Jowett Jupiter; Riley Pathfinder; Singer SM1500; Austin A90; Jensen 541. It replces the crossply size 550-16.

This is a tubeless Radial Tyre.
