Austin Healey 'Frogeye' Sprite Tyres

  • The Austin Healey Sprite MK1 was affectionately known as the 'Frogeye Sprite' or 'Bugeye Sprite'. 5.20x13 crossply tyres were originally installed.
  • The classic radial tyre 145HR13 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67 is presently the ideal tyre for a Frogeye Sprite.
  • Many of these small Bugeye cars have been fitted with bigger wheels, in which case the 175/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 is the best option, outperforming any modern tyre.

Austin Healey Sprite Tyres

  • The Austin Healey Sprite MK2, MK3, and MK4 were also equipped with 5.20X13 crossply tyres, today a 145R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO TM CA67 tyre would be ideal.
  • If wider tyres are used, Pirelli's 175/70VR13 CN36 will outperform any other bigger tyre, other tyres in this size will have a greater adverse effect on the steering.
  • Period tyre pressure guides suggest 25 PSI front and rear for the Frogeye/Bugeye Sprite.
  • Wire wheels require the fitment of innertubes in order for the wheels to function properly and safely. The Michelin 13CG innertube is the most appropriate for 145R13 tyres, whereas a Michelin 13E innertube would be best suited to 175/70 VR 13 tyres.
  • Tyre pressures for an Austin Healey Sprite (MKII onwards) is 24psi in the front and 26psi in the rear.
  • Today there is not a 520X13 crossply tyre that we would recommend for the Frog Eye Sprite or the Spridget; for most people, a radial tyre is more suited to our modern roads. As a result, we propose installing a 145R13 radial tyre.
