The Seventies, ever onward….
As motor sport technology evolved so a special tyre was required. For the amateur racer the TB in its intermediate compound form, known as the 15, provided the best compromise between a race tyre and a multi-purpose product.

It returns with an additional card up its sleeve:Today, the TB range is road legal.

TB15 : The dominant tyre equipment for the rally stars of the 70'
