Default 15 inch tyres

Hi all,

i am asking for a mate who has a Mach 1 1971 mustang.

He is chasing tyres in the following sizes:-

285 x 40 x 15
265 x 40 x 15
265 x 45 x 15

If anyone has a supplier or a link to one that can supply them, that would be most appreciated.

regards

Mick

Search the sizes on eBay and if there are hits for mickey Thompson, then that's proberbly your pick.

Outside of this, there are bugger all options.

Never heard of anything in 15" in those sizes - even when 15's were in their heyday. Pirelli used to do a 285/50-15 which Robnell used in the early days.

The only one I could turn up was the 285/40-15 at Tyresales and Tempe Tyres, but out of stock and dare say permanently. Looks like a sprint car tyre though.

Those are some odd sizes.

This article on what does fit may be of help.

Just bought 245/60/15 and 295/50/15 Avons from Leven Motorsport in Sydney.
Great to deal with.
As for part 2 of your question.... Yes it will!

Cheers

That is the price you pay for the best road legal gripping 15" tyres available.

I will be getting Avons on my new rims once I determine what will fit and what I like.

Means I've a year to save up - lol!

Maybe an opportune time for a bulk Avon purchase to hep reduce cost?
Hmmm just a thought.

I reckon I'd be in a group buy if it could be facilitated at some time in the future.

The Avenger GT's come in various 15" sizes but not in a 40 series sidewall. They are only in 50 or 60 series.
