: : I have fitted on ours 155/80/13 Radial tyres but rims are slightly wider 4.5 as per MG Midget as the original 4s were replaced. Vintage Tyres may be able to offer advice

: I have found that on the front of my mk1 climax 4.5 rims from a triumph spitfire will not fit, they foul the suspension. The correct size for the bmc front suspension is the 4 inch x 13 midget wheel.
: I have been using 165/80/13 radials on the 4 inch wheel for many years with no problems.

Thanks for the info. I ended up with 155/80-13 Michelins.
