            TB15/TB5 Range
            The Michelin TB15 and TB5 were very popular radial racing tyres from the 1970’s and 80’s. They were original equipment on many competition
            cars of the period including Opel Manta, Porsche 911, Alpine A310 and the Lancia Stratos.

            Michelin have now recreated these tyres in several different sizes with today’s conditions in mind. All tyres comply with current legislation and
            are road legal – the perfect track day tyre.

                beaded edge rims
                Popular between 1890-1925, beaded edge tyres had a groove on the side which corresponded with a ridge or clinch on the wheel rim and were
                                                                                                                                                                          how to fit beaded edge tyres
                held together by pressure of air within it, which had to be maintained at sometimes up to 100 psi (7 bar). In Europe these tyres were measured in
                millimetres. In America they were measured in inches and were called Clincher tyres, the measurements referred to the overall tyre dimension
                and bore no reference to the wheel rim diameter. This system was widely used on both cars and motorcycles up to the mid 1920s when it was
                superseded by improved tyre designs better suited to the pace and developments that were taking place within the automotive world.
