Re: Whits tyres to use?

My 500 is also fitted with 13in wheels, with 165x55x13 Pirelli P700 tyres. Another option is 175x50 tyres--the rolling radius is almost identical between the 2 sizes. What size tyres have you got on your car? The trouble is that most modern tyres have very 'square' shoulders on them, which is not good for a car with 'swing-axle' rear suspension (Imps, VWs, Fiat 500/127/600 and 850)--they need a tyre with a more rounded 'shoulder, hence my fitment of P700 tyres--not perfect, but better than most other makes.

Wow! That must look impressive! The same tyres as my modern Cinquecento Sporting had. They are quite beefy. I had a set of Momo, white, aluminium rims for the same which I stupidly sold a few years ago.

It is fittet whit 165*55*13 but i suspect they have been on to long, or are some kind of legal street racing tyres for dry weather. They are made in Poland, not that it should make eny difference. They are perfect i dry condition, but, i live i denmark, and i pisses down a lot.

I know how you feel---I live in North Wales and it pisses down a lot here as well! Another good make is Uniroyal--used to be called 'the rain tyre'. I think both Dunlop and Michelin make tyres of your size, but as I said, try and fit tyres that have a fairly 'rounded' shoulder.
