Riley - Riley Pathfinder

The Riley Pathfinder was the last in the development of the Riley RM series, also called the RMF. Introduced for 1953, it had the Big Four derived 2443 engine with higher compression giving 110 bhp. the chassis was a unique length in the RM series, being a little longer wheelbase than the 1.5 litre cars, and quite a bit shorter than the 2.5 litre cars, and had the widest track of all the RM series. The body was much more up to date with a full width body, as designed before the takeover by BMC, and this was used as the basis for the Wolseley 6/90 launched at the same time. One of the faults of the Pathfinder was the the rear coil sprung suspension design which could fail, so later on the cars went to a conventional leaf spring design. The Riley Pathfinder stayed in production until 1957, when BMC model rationalising led to a new Riley based on the 6 cylinder Wolseley.

Tyre size for Riley Pathfinder  was originally 6.00x16. We would suggest the radial tyre equivalent for the Pathfinder which is the 185R16 tyre size. See full details of this superb Blockley 185VR16 tyre below:
