205/70VR15 Tyres

Towards the end of 1968 Jaguar were the first company to sell a production car, the Jaguar XJ6, fitted with modern Low profile radial technology in the size ER/70VR15. ER/70R15 is the same as a 205/70VR15.

In 1970 Michelin capitalised on the new low profile tyre technology with their extremely high speed rated Michelin XWX, rated to 170mph (270kph). When the UK police used the XJ6 Jaguar they fitted the 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX for safety reasons and for the improved handling.

Michelin still make the 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX with a W speed rating today. The 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX is the ideal tyre to fit Jaguar XJ6, Jaguar XJS, Jaguar E-type (Series 3) V12, Maserati Merak (rear). Many cars that would have fitted 670-15 or 640-15 Cross ply or the full profile radial tyre 185R15 might want to fit a low profile alternative, in which case the Michelin 205/70VR15 XWX would be excellent because it is a period tyre designed exactly for that job. Other cars that would benefit are the Aston Martin DB4, DB5, DB6, Ferrari 250GT Spider, Ferrari 250 GT Lusso.

205/70VR15 XWX

Though there are a variety of tyres in the size 205/70VR15 If you have a Citroen SM, then you really need to fit the Michelin XWX 205/70VR15.

Also worth noting that back in the 1960s and 1970s many cars might have fitted 185 R 15 tyres. In 1968 when 70% profile radial tyres were developed a 205/70VR15 tyre is the same diameter as a 185 VR15 or a 185/80VR15 so it would not be uncommon for people to think adding the wider tyre was a good idea. We would suggest in it will effect your handling, but if you are going to do that fitting Michelins 205/70VR15 XWX will not have as bad effect as any modern 205/70VR15 tyre.

The Overall Diameter of the 205/70 VR 15 Michelin XWX is 669 mm and the width is 209 mm. For more information on the 205/70 VR 15 Michelin XWX please see below or call +44 (0) 1302 711 123.
