Hello all
Tyres;
Series 1  Fulvia, semi competition , has been running 175/65 x14 and 175/70x14 old Colway soft rally tyres. These are finished and need replacement .[ about 3000 miles  a year , UK tours and events in Europe ] All ideas on suitable and available alternatives would be welcome please .

Heater
I have recently taken over sole ownership after 12 yrs joint ownership of this car. The heater has nice warm temperatures , in and out , but very tepid air being blown out . All thoughts along the lines of " try this first " would be a help please.
Thanks David

Weirdly they have 14x165 and 14x185 but not the 175.

Michelin XAS in the 165, 175 and 185.

They also have a "find your car" facility with suggestions:

I thought of Vredestein as more of a budget option, but a very similar price as it happens:

There are some budget options there.

These are a popular historic "road going race tyre" but less choice in 14in than 15in.

I looked on Deemon Tweaks - lots of 14x175 and 14x165 but has to be 185 for "track day" tyres.

Fulvia heaters are famously feeble.

My Fulvia heaters are all more than acceptable in heat delivery. My Flavia heater is less so. If the car has not had adequate antifreeze treatment during its life it is likely the heater core is furred up. Mine have never been changed, and I am religious about keeping 35% antifreeze in my cars.

My heater has had a new core once, and the end tank plate repaired after it split, so the heater has been rebuilt twice with particular attention paid to sealing the airbox, and it's still bloody useless!

Ah Brian yours is a Berlina. Didnt they expect people who owned those to travel in fur coats and top hats?🤠

Tim, as the other member of the highly exclusive 2C Club, I would stress neither I or Brian own a  fur coat ! We do share equally inefficient heaters though!!

Our S1 Fulvia GTE heater is superb I am afraid. I can't tell you why as it has been very good ever since we acquired it and the very best of many S1s we have owned.
