|Oily Hand's Life with MGs
The TA ended last year a bit lacking in the tyre tread department and new rubber was essential for future driving. I'm running 16" wheels with 600x16 crossply tyres. I looked for some replacements and nearly had a heart attack when I saw the prices for crossply tyres these days. The last ones I bought a few years ago were only £25 each, now they are closer to £200 each. Ouch!!. I have heard conflicting views on the use of radials on T Types but decided to give them a try and this morning I had a full set of 175x16 fitted. A painful experience for the pocket but much better than crossply prices. I haven't fitted the wheels back on the car yet but I'm looking forward to seeing how they perform.
Hi, I'm Owen and I've been having fun with MGs since 1970, starting with my 1937 MGTA. Since then I've had three Y types and a couple of Z Magnettes. I now have a 1971 MGB GT along with the TA and my wife and I are still having fun
