Mornin,

I’ve got 4 Bridgestone 195 55 R14 tyres, possibly even the originals off a UK GTi-R.  I bought standard alloys off my mate 2 years ago, and when he bought Sunny GTi-R in the mid 90’s he took off the standard wheels and stored them in his loft... forgot about them until 2 years ago and flogged them to me.

Two of the tyres are heavily cracked radially in the tread the other two look in good condition, All 4 we’re holding pressure (with original air Laughing ) but wouldn’t chance using them.

As Bridgestone no longer make these tyres in the factory original size, they may be useful for someone who has a show car in original factory spec but just need original tyres??

I’m on the point of binning them as downsizing the garage loft junk!

Tyres 75-D4-BDAF-D89-C-4-AF5-BFD3-43177-EA455-DA

Tyres D1723-A51-C444-40-C6-9-F01-D0-B5-C26818-AE

Tyres 7-EB42-A6-A-5-CEB-4985-B06-B-34-B5002-B2-DF3

Is it worth holding on to them, on the off chance they could become worth something or maybe they are now?

Gaz

IMO I don't think they will be worth anything, but maybe im wrong? Do you guys have any laws around how old a tyre can be on a road car?

If the 2 cracked I doubt there much use to anyone personally. Most original cars will have original wheels but new rubber for mot/safety as they drive to shows
