Classic Mini

The A008 Yokohama 165/70-10" set the standard for a performance tires for the Mini that is DOT approved. The asymmetric tread pattern provides great straight line stability while having superior cornering ability. The soft compound adds tremendous grip to all applications, and this tire has been the standard for years on vintage race Minis while still being our most popular street performance tire!

Mount tires to rim by hand only! Machine mounting will damage the tire and will not be warranted!

The A008 is Yokohama's performance tire developed for the drivers of classic Austin 7, Mini 850 and Mini Cooper cars. The A008 uses Yokohama's latest technology to provide enhanced performance in dry conditions. The A008 features a high performance tread compound molded into an asymmetric design that includes a continuous shoulder rib to enhance responsiveness and dry road traction. Circumferential grooves and independent tread blocks on the inner portion of the tire focus on hydroplaning resistance and wet traction. Internally, A008 tires feature a polyester cord body and twin steel belts reinforce by a layer of nylon to help deliver exceptional dry traction and predictable handling.


Directions say that the tires must be mounted by hand. Do they need to be balanced and can you use beads?
Any wheel/tire combo should be balanced - I've seen beads used in all types and sizes of tires - so certainly can be used here if you wish to keep your wheel free of weights.

What Tire Fits a Classic Mini?
Created: December 12, 2013
This is definitely a topic that keeps coming up! What wheel and tire combinations can be made to fit a Classic Mini? Just a few days ago, had a customer call for “175/55-10” as though they could just be picked off the rack! Hmmm, I’ve never seen such a size, except maybe on a Yamaha Banshee Quad for doing burnouts! I thought it would be a good time to update what combinations are currently available, and a little bit about fitting them to most Minis. It’s been pointed out by me and others, that all the common combinations end up having about the same overall rolling diameter.
