    Hi Saab S&R Enthusiasts

    I am writing from UK. I have just joined this forum as I hope to be able to gain and share information about rallying the Saab V4. My car is a 1970 V4 with 1815cc twin weber engine.

    Is there a source of 155×15 Forest Rally tyres (gravel) in Sweden?

    In UK Colway tyres went bankrupt and since then it is hard to get a good size tyre for the V4.

    Thanks

    Peter

    Welcome to the forum, Peter!

    We have special rules for rally tires in Sweden. All tyres must be controlled by the Swedish National Sporting Authority for motorsport called SBF. They make lists of tyres you are allowed to use. They have not a list for 2009 summer tyres yet but you find some useful links below:

    List A Summer tyres 2008

    List B Summer tyres 2008

    Winter tyres 2008-09 with or without studs

    Perhaps you can use some information in these lists.

    Back in the good old days I used Dunlop SP gravel tyres but that was a long time ago.

    Hi Bengt

    Thank you for the information.

    I see the AVON SFR 155-15 (Summer Forest Rally) is listed. Do you know if this tyre can be baought in Sweden? I was told that when Avon stopped manufacturing it in the UK, they sold the licence to a company in Sweden.

    I have a friend in Sweden on holiday who could collect them.

    thanks
    Peter

    Hi Peter..

    Michelin has a tyre called ”L” in the tyresummerlist, you can use L82 with size 14/62-15″, the fits perfect at 4,5″ rims, I had used it and I know several who use it, they are more expensive to buy new but they are probobly the best tyres you can have on your Rallysaab. Not so´good picture, but you see them at the foto. Cost about 2200 sek, it´s about 220€ each, but you can use them twice as long as Avon 155/15″

    Inte konstigt att du kör så sakta Roger när du envisas med att vara 3 i bilen……..

    Sorry for ”thread-napping”:

    Which rim-width is maximum allowed for Saab 96 V4 in historic rallying?
    Is 5″ allowed?
