155R15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67
The PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 155R15 is a great value tyre considering its quality, this set of 5 tyres makes them extra good value. We also have:
The tyre size 155R15 is a very important classic car size. Not only were 155R15 tyres fitted on a wide variety of classic cars such as Peugeot 403, 404, Lancia Flavia and Appia, Saab96GL and 95GL, Reliant Scimitar Sabre4; this actual 155R15 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 was fitted as original equipment on some utterly lovely classic cars at the factory gate, Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider, Giulietta and early Alfa Giulia, not to mention the beautiful Lotus Elite, which didn’t just look fabulous but was an astonishing handling car packing a punch far above what would be expected of a 1.2L classic sports car.
The other thing that made the a 155R15 tyre so important is it was a radial alternative to crossply tyres of the size 5.50-15 and 5.60-15 meaning that this Cinturato would be the best radial tyre to be fitted to cars like Triumph TR2, early TR3 (pre A), MGA, MG TD MG TF, and when it comes to the big volume the VW Beetle fitted 5.60-15 crossply and as a result handles best on a 155R15 tyre specially this 155R15 Pirelli Cinturato. Worth noting that many of these classic car owners might choose to fit a 165 R15 tyre instead of 155R15, choosing more footprint and slightly longer legs in the gearing. For cars where its not so much about the handling the 165 R15 Michelin XZX offers an excellent bargain for a VW Beetle, and the 165 R15 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 offers the superior handling of a sports car tyre. However, it is well worth pointing out that if your car fitted 5.50-15 or 5.60-15 crossply tyres then it will handle nicest as a road car on a 155R15 tyre, and the 155R15 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 is the best of the bunch particularly for classic Sports Cars.
155R15 Tyres by Pirelli
Back in the late 1950s and early 1960s the sports cars that were known as the best handling and the nimblest sports cars of the day were the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and the Lotus Elite. Both these cars fitted the 155R15 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 tyres. Though the 155R15 Cinturato cannot take all of the glory for the way these fabulous little cars handled, However it was without doubt a contributing factor. In 1952 Pirelli took what had been learned about the advantages to grip and longevity that the radial tyre had too offer; but the difference with the Pirelli Cinturato is that it offered progressive handling. A critical element of what makes a classic sports car from this period such a joy to drive. Classic Sports cars are not about ultimate grip, but progressive handling and cornering a classic car on the throttle peddle as much as the steering wheel.
There are other good classic tyres in the sizes 155R15. Michelin make the 155R15 Michelin X. Michelin X is Ideal for VW Beetle and light steering for a very early more pedestrian car. Michelin also make the 155R15 XAS; again a great tyre. The 155R15 XAS somewhat later 1965 tyre, that really comes into its own at high speed cruising. However, on an 1950s, 1960 or even 1970s chassis set up nothing competes with the graceful progressive handling of a CA67 Pirelli Cinturato. It truly is a key component to some of the worlds best handling classic Sports cars. Lets face it Ferrari fitted Cinturato on its 250 GT road cars.
