Aston Martin DB6

Aston Martin DB6 1965–1970

  • 185 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 were the original equipment radial fitment for a series 1 DB6. The crossply option was 670 H 15 Avon Turbospeed on a DB6 series 1. Today we would recommend that radial tyres are more suited to modern roads and say the best tyre for the car is still the 185 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67.
  • Some people prefer a wider tyre, and a 205/70 VR 15 Michelin XWX or 205/70 R 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO   CN12 would be the best low-profile early Aston Martin DB6. However it will make the steering heavier, so you might want to fit power steering, and you won't really benefit from the wider tyre unless you fit wider wheels. The car will ultimately handle better on 185R15.
  • The DB6 was released on wire wheels, making innertubes mandatory, even with tubeless radial tyres.
  • For these tyres the Michelin 15F is the most appropriate Aston Martin DB6 innertube.
  • The DB6 Series 2 had 52mm hubs, wider wheels and flared wheel arches, to take advantage of the new 205 WR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN72   or crossply 815 - 15 Avon (the Avon crossply is no longer made).
  • Again, some people like a wider low profile modern tyre, in which  case the 215/70 VR 15 Michelin XWX or 215/70 WR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN12 would be the best option. These tyres are a slightly different shape, so the wider parts of the tyre are not in the same place as a full profile tyre, and the tread will be considerably wider, so we recommend being cautious when fitting different tyres, particularly with Aston Martin, because, of course, every car is different, which is also part of their charm.
  • The Michelin 15/17H will be the best fitting innertube for these tyres.
  • It might be worth mentioning that as a persuader Sir Roger Moore had the 205 VR 15 CINTURATO CN72 fitted to his DBS (which is essentially the same as a DB6M K2) See the picture below.
  • One of the best upgrades you could specify in period for a DB6, and still is today are Borrani Wheels. See the bottom of the page for more info.

DB6 Tyres

The early Aston Martin DB6 originally fitted the Avon TurboSpeed crossply tyre or radial 185 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO &trade: CA67. The 185 R 15 Michelin XVS is also an excellent option. Out of these tyres the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ was what Aston would fit if you specified radial tyres when buying the car.

A 205/70-15 Tyre is also a possible option for the Aston Martin DB6. Of the tyres available the Michelin XWX 205/70 VR 15 or PIRELLI 205/70 VR 15 CINTURATO ™ CN12 are the best low profile options for the early DB6 Aston Martin.

DB6 MK2 Aston Martin Tyres

The later Aston Martin DB6 fitted the radial PIRELLI 205 VR 15 CINTURATO ™ CN12 being the best suited to a sports car. In period the 815 - 15 Avon Turbo Speed was also a a cheaper option. The 815 - 15 Avon is no longer made, because basically everyone fitted radial. These MK2 DB6 cars were basically a DBS, and had the 52mm wheel hubs and wider rims to suit the wider tyres.

As you can see from the pictures above, the 205 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ (middle) fills the wheel arches much better than the 215/70ZR15 PIRELLI P4000 (bottom). The PIRELLI P4000 is a good tyre but not suited to these cars.

The Aston Martin DB6 can also be fitted with a 215/70-15 tyre. The best fitment is a 215/70 WR 15 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.
