How are they in the wet ?

I'd get some good, new ones....
To be honest I don't know as it never goes out in the wet. Am wary to find out now. The rubber looks a bit greyer than modern ones, almost misty. Aged?

Re: Original Tyres?

Can you have a slight increase on them say 165 or 175's? Would that help the non PAS and tank steering?

Re: Original Tyres?

Good point I ought to check I will tomorrow. They are so skinny though 155's, with non PAS cornering is a cautious manoeveure. They've lasted well though for 89's, maybe time for some new ones.

Original Tyres?

Wondered if anyone still had original tyres on their rover from new? Mine are Pirelli 155/R13 originals from 1989 and with no cracks or wear on gentle 21k miles am wondering if the compound effectiveness should deem them to be replaced soon?

Re: Rust and scratches

Watch Numptey if the hinges 'warp' as they did on my 214. One side of the hatch had a 1/3 - 1/2" gap down through, the other was minimal perfect. Hinges were rusty and caused the warpness.

Cornwall Classic & American Car Show - 3 August 2014

Listed this one as is just over the Cornish border from Saltash as is set in Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, a beautiful setting with plenty of other things going on. Maybe of more interest to our Cornish members or indeed as its early August worth the trip for many to make if the weather is clement. D...

Purple interior?

This is but 7 miles down the road from me - a 200 registered in 2000 but with plum and leather interior. Was this standard, a special edition, an after-thought crossover with the on-sale 25, or is it someone's creation? Never seen one..... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2000-V-Rover-214-1-4-16v-iS-5-Door...
