Some Michelins supplied today are only to be fitted with tubes as the manufacturer (Michelin) does not seal the inside of the tyre (according to Longstone). Bizzarre as same tyre in a different size is classed as tubeless and is sealed... Just wonder if you are running tube tyres tubelessly?

I made a decision yesterday, called in at Longstone Tyres and bought a pair of Pirelli Cinturatos, decided it may as well have quality tyres and Italian rather than the Michelins also available seemed only right. I'll get the others soon but have 2 wheels off the car at the moment so thought I may as well sort those before it is back on the ground.

Hello Andy. My little Fulvia was off the road for 15 years until last year and I had the same decision to make. In the end I went for a set from the Cinturato range by Pirelli and they look super and very retro. I am fiddling with the car this weekend and I'll post the size and tyre style/number on Sunday or Monday. They look very very nice.

Hi Andy, just checked my file and the size I got for the regular steel wheels was 165/HR15 on a '75 1.3s

I may be wrong but i thought only Berlina ran on 15" wheels?

Thanks BermondseyBoy, I've bought a pair of the Pirelli Cinturato as I decided I will hopefully get a good life from them with low mileage each year, and they look right to me.

Had them put on the wheels today and the garage who do that for me said they wondered if they should have tubes, what does anyone think, I wasn't sure from the earlier answers.

I bought a set of 5 T rated 165/80R 14 Falken Sincera SN832s for our Fulvia Berlina GTE in the summer of 2016 and have found them to be ideal.
The circumference is slightly larger than the original 155/14 tyres @ 1946 cm as opposed to 1896cm but as we have the 1300cc engine with a 4 speed box there is  no problem with gearing, the ride is absolutely fine, the appearance is if anything slightly improved as the wheel arches are 'fuller' and they are wearing well. And the price was excellent.
The only slight downside is that the spare wheel (which sits upright in the boot in a well touching the rear light panel) tends to foul the bootlid if fully inflated so I leave it at 15psi and in any case I carry a footpump.
I am pleased to see that in the interim others have made the same choice and are as satisfied.

I started using Barum Brilliantis 2's on my S2 1300 coupe 2 years ago. They are really good wet or dry at a sensible price. Kept me safe at speed in the Italian Alps, Appenines and the Grand Sasso and over some pretty rough stuff too.

As I understand it S2 steel wheels (and perhaps other series?) cannot be fitted with tubeless tyres as they do not have tyre retention inner ridges. Certainly my tyre fitting company will not fit tyres on my wheels tubelessly.

Thanks Brian, that was what the person at the garage said about the lack of tyre retaining ridges in the wheels. They fitted the tyres for me but said they weren't sure if they should have tubes or would hold air - they do seem to be doing that OK though. Would be good to know if anyone is running them successfully without tubes though, but obviously I want to be safe.

I run them without tubes on cromodora alloys, and I run Michelin X tubeless on Flavia steel wheels which must be same profile as Fulvia steel wheels??

I've had Dunlop street response tubeless fitted to my 2c's steel wheels for over 2 years with no problems; and i haven't had tyres fitted with tubes for years, as the inner tubes used to get pinched.
I know it's a modern tyre but good value.

I also run tubeless on alloys - 175/80 R14 Primewell PS870 on the 1600 Sport.  I didn't know either until I looked them up.  Reviews are pretty good, they suit me fine.  My local tyre man drives a hairy Porsch and does seem to know what he is doing.
