Hello all,

I should order new tires for my father’s T57 form 1934.
For the moment the car is equipped with 6.5 X 18 that looks good but as far as I know they are wider than original fit.
5.5 X 18 should be the correct size I guess.

What brand & profile looks best on a T-57 with touring body?

Thanks for your suggestions.

Greetings,

Christian

Hello Lazarus,

Thanks for your reply.

Would you recommend the A6C Bockley profile or the Block pattern?
I think there is anyway not that much choice.
Excelsior which look pretty much the same than the Bockley race tire or the Michelin and some Firestone.
I think that I have to browse the Internet for pictures of T57's to see how they look on the car.

Greetings,

Christian

I would absolutely not recommend Michelin. We had these on the T 49 and they were dreadful.
