1972 BMW 2002

BMW 2002 1968−1975

  • The BMW 2002, BMW 2002 Cabriolet, BMW 2002 Saloon, BMW 2002ti Saloon, BMW 2002tii and BMW 2002 Turbo would all be best suited to a set of 165R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 classic tyres.
  • Our period Innertube Guide suggests that some 2002 models were released with tubeless wheels and tyres, but some were not.
  • You could still fit innertubes to tubeless wheels; perhaps because you have tube-type tyres, a puncture, or you are not confident your rims are airtight.
  • If you need an innertube for this tyre a Michelin 13D is correct.
  • BMW 2002 ti, 2002 tii, and 2002 Turbo models fitted 185/70 R13 tyres. In period Alpina fitted 185/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36, we would recommend these as the perfect low profile tyre for a 2002ti.
  • These tyres are tubeless, but if you fit tubes a Michelin 13E is ideal.
  • We would suggest running all BMW 2002 cars at 30psi at the front and rear.

History of the BMW 2002

Helmut Werner Bönsch, BMW's head of product planning, and Alex von Falkenhausen, the engineer behind the M10 engine, both had a 2-litre engine put in a 1602 for their own use. When they realised they'd both made the identical change to their vehicles separately, they drafted a combined proposal to BMW's board of directors to produce a two-litre version of the 1602.

Simultaneously, American importer Max Hoffman asked BMW for a sporty version of the 1602 series that could be offered in the US. The 2002 was thus formed, with several successful versions following in the 2002ti and tii. Hans Stuck won the Nurburgring 24-hour race in 1970 while driving a 2002ti, and other 2002ti's were also winning hill climbs and rallies at the time, amounting to a successful racing career.
