Moke Tyres

Post by Farmer » Mon Dec 10, 2018 17:52

What tyres are regarded as the best for a 1965 Morris Moke on standard rims? We're all Mokes supplied on winter tyres?

I think the Dunlop Weathermasters were optional extras.

You can get replicas here: https://www.vintagetyres.com/shop/dunlo ... thermaster

Do bear in mind you get quite a lot of tyre noise with these.

Having driven up the A3 for the LNYDP at a steady 55-60mph (we even overtook someone) I think it's fair to say you get more noise from having the hood up than from the tyres, noisy though they are.

I've no idea how you'd get these to 113MPH, Chris, without dropping the Moke out of an aeroplane.
