- Early 1971 – 72 Pantera GTS fitted 185/70VR15 Michelin XWX & 215/70VR15 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 215/60WR15 CN36 which is a little larger but also a different tread pattern. The other option is 215/60VR15 Avon CR6ZZ and 245/60VR15 CR6ZZ or 275/55R15 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 225/50R15 Pirelli P7 on the front and 285/50VR15 Pirelli P7 on the rear. For now we would suggest fitting 295/50R15 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 285/40R15 Pirelli P7 and 345/35R15 Pirelli Cinturato P7 tyres

History of the De Tomaso Pantera
Contracted by Ford to make a supercar for sale in the US, the De Tomaso Pantera was built from 1971-1985 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.
