    Tyre Fitment

    Hi

    can anyone clarify which model Flavia fitted which size tyre? and if you know what brand of tyre they fitted too that would be a great help, because currently, i think our web page http://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/page/lancia-flavia isn't terribly accurate.

    The instruction book for the Flavia 2000 Coupé says that Michelin XAS 165/15 are recommended w/ tyre pressure 2 bar/28.5 PSI on front and rear. With full load or on fast runs 2.2 bar/31.2 PSI

    Best regards

    Based on the documentation I have, it appears that all Flavia models ran 165-15 until the change to the "2000" in 1971, after which they all went to 175-15

    Are you sure that they didn't shift to 14? Think I have seen more than one 2000 with 14 inch wheels or is that just the Cromadoras.

    Do anyone out there have personal experience with Michelin XAS and compared them to other tyres on a Flavia 2000 Coupe or any other Flavia?

    Regards

    Lars

    Yes -- sorry. The 175s for the 2000 are 175-14.

    I can't compare them directly, but XAS are great tires
