Triumph - Triumph TR8

The Triumph TR8 was built from 1978 with the bulk of the cars intended for the US market, by shoehorning the all alloy Rover V8 engine into the existing Triumph TR7. This Rover engine was lighter than Triumphs own V8 engine, and had come from GM, previously from Buick, and what many don't appreciate originally from BMW. Other than the engine, the TR8 came with alloy wheels, upgraded brakes and different axle ratio. Unfortunately the car was let down by its build quality, with the strong £ at the time making them very expensive in the USA. Although all the cars were open top, approximately 400 or so hard top TR8's were also built, mainly to get the homoligation needed for the TR7 V8 engined Rally car. The Triumph TR8 was built until 1981.

Tyre size for the Triumph TR8 was 185/70VR13 originally, and Blockley produces this size with the high speed rated period correct 185/70VR13 which will transform the handling - guaranteed. This is the only tyre size to fit, but for anyone wanting to get carried away with a Rally car there is also a 235/60VR13 we make that could be used on the rear . . .See full details of the period correct, high speed rated 185/70VR13 period correct tyre below:
