  2. Tire Choices - 80’s Spider

    Suspension, Steering, Brakes, Wheels & Tires
    I have a 1984 Spider Veloce and find there are very limited choices for replacement tires fitting the original 14 inch rims. The previous owner put private label Walmart “Douglas” tires on the car and while manufactured by Goodyear don’t hold the road well. I am rebuilding the suspension with...
  3. tire size question

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi, I am downsizing my wheels to the 14" stars from an 1986. Would these tires be ok?Pirelli P4 Four Seasons PLUS - 195/70R14 90T. It's an automatic so I don't do a lot of serious cornering. I just want a nice riding tire. I rarely drive in the rain. thanks,
  4. Tires for 6" rims? 185/70 or 225/60-14?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I know I have seen several threads on tires here. It seems search is not working for me. Putting a set of Ronal Basket-Weave 6x14" on the '79 Spider. It currently has 205/60 on the original rims which I believe are 5.5" wide. Looking at tire charts it seems 225/60 is an exact diameter match...

  8. Money well spent?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)

    Getting ready for the driving season. I am retiring the original Pirelli 155/15's. I am wondering what to go with next, the price of the Pirelli's is nuts... but given the right rationale I may be convinced to go with them. Second question is whether I would go with 165/15's. I think I read...

    I've gotten new Vredestein Sprint tires for my 66 SS with original steel wheels. While the tires are "tubeless" Do I still need to put tubes in them for the original steel wheels? Don't want to do it if not necessary, but the old Pirellis had tubes.
