Default Tyers for a Bristol 407

I agree with Greg.

http://www.stefanopasini.it/Bristol_409-Vredestein.htm

My car arrived with 'Austone' tyres usually fitted on cabs. Cheap, sturdy,
the car drove straight but they are not legal (speed rating is very low.)
The 6.00x16 Avons I fitted to replace them were quiet and looked perfect,
but the 409 developed a sudden, unexplainable 'pull' to the right that no
swapping of tires or adjustment of the front suspensions could cure. I
fitted four 185x16 Vredesteins and the 409 now drives straight and has a
better handling, though you might feel a bit more road noise. They look
correct, too.

Perhaps the Pirelli Cinturato and Michelin X would be as good as the
Vredesteins, but I have no proof of that they are much more expensive....so
I recommend the Vredestein 'Classic Sprint'

Ciao

Stefano
