I need new tires for my old car. Does anyone have any experience with Longstone Classic Tyres in the UK? They can send me some Pirelli 165 HR 14 Cinturato CA67's. I am hearing that it s tough to find 165 R 14's so this sounds like it might be a good deal.

Cloverdale? - NOBODY lives in Cloverdale!
I used to live in Eureka,& remember the time that Highway 101
went through town,& it was the biggest speed trap on 101.

Pirelli's came stock with the car. It is basically as is. Ive owned it for 40 years or so. Bought from a guy in Sacramento who bought from the original owner. I still have the original owners manual. Anyway, I looked up the tires on Pirelli's web site and found out these are the tires they now make for the older B's. My tires are 165 R 14 and what they make now are HR 14's. I am not a tire guy so I don't understand what that means exactly but I think I am leaning more towards Pirelli than Michelin since I don't put that many miles on the car.

You are right--Nobody lives in Cloverdale! We used to stop by here at the old Foster's Freeze on the way home from Clear Lake back in the 60s' when I was in high school. Its a one horse town and the horse has left but its quiet and not hard to look at.

Lucas Tire has the Pirelli's at $185 each. That's $925 for five tires. Longstone has five for sale for $847 right now and that includes shipping as far as I can tell.

I'm running 175/70R14 on my MGB. Not even sure of the brand, they were what the store had. Same size tire on my Morris Minor, those are Coopers. Both are perfectly fine for the amount the cars get driven (best case is a few thousand miles in a year). May switch to the Vredesteins once the MGB is back on the road, but the ones on there worked fine and were not expensive.
