Aston Martin DB6

Aston Martin DB6 Tyres

185VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ were the original equipment radial fitment for a series 1 DB6. The cross ply option was 670V15 Avon TurboSpeed on a DB6 series 1. Today we would recommend that radial tyres are more suited to modern roads. Also some people like a wider tyre so a 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX or PIRELLI 205/70VR15 CINTURATO ™ CN12 HS would be the best options for an early Aston Martin DB6.

The DB6 Series 2 fitted a crossply tyre 815X15 (which is no longer produced) or radial 205VR15. The DB6 Series 2 has flared wheel arches which allow these later DB6 cars to fit a taller 205VR15 CN72 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ HS tyres. There is little doubt that the CINTURATO ™ would be the tyre of choice for these later DB6 cars.
The picture above shows the 205VR15 CN72 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ HS tyre that PIRELLI put into production in 1964, which is perfect for the Aston Martin DB6. On either side of this tyre are more modern 70% profile tyre sizes that are often fitted by mistake. On the left is a 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX, which is too small in diameter, and on the right is a 215/70VR15 Michelin XWX which is closer in dimensions and would also be a good tyre for the series 2 Aston Martin DB6. Some cars that originally fitted the 205VR15 CINTURATO ™ like the Maserati Ghibli changed to the 215/70VR15 tyre when the low profile tyre was developed at the beginning of the 1970's.

DB6 Tyres

The early Aston Martin DB6 fitted a 670x15 cross ply tyre, the radial alternative would be a 185x15, with PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ and Michelin XVS being the best. Out of these tyres the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ would be what Aston would fit if you specified radial tyres when buying the car.

A 205/70x15 tyre is also a possible option for the Aston Martin DB6. Of the tyres available the Michelin XWX 205/70VR15 or PIRELLI 205/70VR15 CINTURATO ™ CN12 HS are the best available options for the DB6 Aston Martin.


Later DB6 Aston Martin Tyres

The later Aston Martin DB6 fitted a 815x15 cross ply tyre. The radial alternative is 205x15, with the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ HS being the best suited to a sports car.

As you can see from the pictures above, the 205VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ HS tyre ( on the left ) fills the wheel arches much better than the 215/70ZR15 PIRELLI P4000 ( on the right ). The PIRELLI P4000 is a good tyre but not suited to these cars.

The Aston Martin DB6 can also be fitted with a 215/70x15. The best fitment is a 215/70x15 Michelin XWX.


Aston Martin DB6 Volante Tyres

The Aston Martin DB6 Vantage and Aston Martin DB6 Volante both fitted the same tyres as the standard Aston Martin DB6.
