De Tomaso Pantera
De-Tomaso Pantera Tyres
- Early 1971 – 72 Pantera GTS fitted 185/70 VR 15 Michelin XWX & 215/70 WR 15 Michelin XWX.
- 1972.5 – 1978 Pantera-L, GTS and Group 3 cars fitted 205/60R15 & 255/60R15. This is very tricky, Pirelli make a correct 255/60R15 CN12, but the closest they get to a front is 215/60 WR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 which is a little larger but also a different tread pattern.
- The other option is 215/60VR15 Avon CR6ZZ and 245/60 VR 15 Avon CR6ZZ or 275/55 VR 15 Avon CR6ZZ. This is not a period tyre, they are slightly the wrong size, they are racing tyres, but they are the same tread pattern front and rear.
- From later 1978 till 1984 De Thomaso fitted 285/40 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO P7 on the front and 285/50VR15 Pirelli P7 on the rear. For now we would suggest fitting 295/50 VR 15 Avon CR6ZZ on the rear of their Pantera GTS & Group 3 cars.
- The later Pantera GT4, GT5 and GT5-S, or wide body Pantera as they are called fit 285/40 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO P7 and 345/35 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO P7 tyres.
- Inner tubes are not essential for most radial tyres, but they can still be the better option when compared to going tubeless. For more information, see our inner tube guide.

History of the De Tomaso Pantera
Contracted by Ford to make a supercar for sale in the US, the De Tomaso Pantera was built to be a marked improvement over the De Tomaso Mangusta. Sadly Ford would later withdraw their support leaving De Tomaso to make the car on their own.
The Pantera, which means "Panther" in Italian, was the automaker's most popular model, with over 7,000 produced throughout its twenty-year manufacturing life. From 1972 to 1975, American Lincoln-Mercury dealers sold more than three-quarters of the production; once this arrangement expired, De Tomaso continued to produce the car in decreasing quantities until the early 1990s.
