Triumph 3HW Tyres....

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any good suggestions for tyres for my '44 Triumph 3HW project? Would like to keep the tread pattern similar to original tyres issued if I can.

The original tyre size was 325x19, although you can usually fit 350x19 but depending on make you might start getting close to mudguard stays etc. (Makers don't all seem to comply to the same size criteria?)


You could do a lot worse than 'Vintage Tyres' I think it's free delivery? The Dunlop K70 is probably the best tyre, But the Ensign road tyre has more of a block pattern, or the Mitas are quite good and both are cheaper than the K70. I've found the K70 wears quite quickly which is probably a sacrifice for grip. I've done many miles of the cheap Mitas, and heard good reports on the Ensign's.


The 350x19 Cheng Shin is an almost identical tread pattern to the K70 and I prefer them as they seem to last longer. I am currently running my M20 and BSA/Indian Special on them.
