Going back 30 years this was a very big selling size for trailers and cars but in more recent times had largely disappeared from the New Zealand market as the vehicles which used it were wrecked. The very limited selection of tyres available in sizes 185 80 13 and 185 R13 were hard to find and expensive.
Now Tyresales has good stocks of the bargain priced Grenlander L-Travel 8 ply which is perfect for trailers, caravans and vehicles running sizes 185 80 13 and 185 R13. Yes, Triumph 2000’s etc did not run on 8 ply tyres, but affordable 4 ply tyres in these sizes are not available and our experience supplying 8 plys for old school Barina’s etc (155 80 12 / 155 R12) and classic vehicles confirms their fitment does not compromise handling and comfort. Our 8 ply L-travel tyres are highly suited to vehicles which had cross ply tyres as their original equipment.
Grenlader 8 ply tyres are renowned for their durability and ability to cope with heavy loads and harsh driving and can be used with or without inner tubes.
