Some used vintage shoes( tires) for our project...


Recommended Posts

We may be using lightly used Dunlop vintage race tires( the one on the rt., the one on the left is only avail new and is $$$$))...a very cool looking old school tire....13"...w/an 8 ' wheel. The model on the left was developed for later historics when they went to wider wheels...so the tread foot print is wider being able to take advantage of a wider wheel. It would be more appropriate for the 02, but they are just too much $$$.

yup ! ......CR-65 is the correct tyre for yer car :


But for street - I'm more of a fan of the CN 36 (on the right )


sorry to say it's become available again only in 15" and 16 "

175/70x15 for SAAB 99 Turbo/EMS, VW Super Beatle, PORSCHE 356,

and some others


and then there's MICHELIN " XAS " 'vintage' - anything is available-

just takes MONEY.

Here's a great catalog with tons of tyre history :


'86 R65 650cc #6128390 22,000m
'64 R27 250cc #383851 18,000m

Those tyres look very cool. I'm guessing they are bias ply. Have you ever driven a car with wide bias ply tyres? Better keep a good grip on the steering wheel. What is the end result width? I too think that 13's look the part on an o2. I have 235/45/13 Kuhmo V700's on my 13X8's. Sumatumo has a 215/50/13 that is CHEEP at Tire Rack.


By the way, this 510 has those 215's on 13X8 wheels.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
