Michelin TB5 F -Soft Compound 16/53-13 (185/55R13 72V)

£242.00 exc VAT £290.40 inc VAT

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.

This 16/53-13 (185/55VR13) size Michelin TB5 F is an ideal front tyre for high-performance versions of: Alpine A110 (Group 3 and Group 4); Renault 8 Gordini (Group 2), Renault 5 Alpine (Group 2); Opel Kadette GTE (Group 1); Ford Escort RS (Group 1); BMW 2002 (Group 1); Volkswagen Golf GTi (Group 2 and Group N); Simca Rallye 2 (Group 2).
