    What brand and model of tire were installed at the factory for the 1985 P Type?

    Hello All,

    I am new to site and considering the purchase of low mileage 1985 P Type. After much searching online I cannot find any information about which brand and model tire was installed on these cars from the factory. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    One of them was a Bridgestone Potenza and the other was Yokohama tire. I forget what the exact model name were. If you want to see if all 5 match check it against the trunk spare.

    I bought my car new in 1983 and this is what was on mine. My wife's 1984 spare tire is the same.

    Thank you all for replies. I have zero experience with these cars and could not see online if they came with space saver or full size spare. Thanks again.

    They're all technically full size spares. Later cars 84+ with the cutout in the wood floor have a 5th aluminum wheel in the trunk. Early cars have a narrower steel wheel and a full wood floor in them.

    To elaborate, all the early cars had a steelie spare.

    For the US, 84 up P-types only got the full size spare. L-types still rocked a steelie spare.

    The 85 L's actually had a 15" aluminum spare with the cutout floor board.
