    What are these tyres? Old Formual ? tyres?

    Got these with some other junk I bought, my google fu has let me down, I know they're motorsport tyres - Formula Ford? Vee?

    It has "F5.20-13" on one part and "4.05L-13" on another. They're Dunlops. No date on them either. I'm guessing they are CR65's but are they for open wheelers or sedans?

    To me they look like 1960s racing tyres. Most likely open wheelers.

    Turbo: yeah they're for historic racing, same tread pattern etc but with new compounds etc.
