De-Lorean DMC 1981–1983

  • The original tyres on the Delorean DMC12 were Goodyear NCT 195/60R14 on the front and 235/60R15 on the rear.
  • Currently the best tyres we know for the Delorean are 195/60 VR 14 Michelin MXV3-A front and 235/60 WR 15 Pirelli P600 rear.
  • Sadly we do not currently have a Delorean tyre set up that offers the same tread patterns front and rear, but we are happy that we have 2 extremely good quality tyres for the Delorean.
  • However that serves Delorean right for having different size wheels front and rear. I mean really.
  • Suggested tyre pressure for the Delorean DMC 12 are 23psi front and 30psi in the back.

The recommended Pirelli and Michelin tyres are speed rated as S (170mph max) and V (149mph max) respectively. Reaching the 88mph necessary for time travel won't be an issue on these tyres!

History of the DeLorean DMC 12

company's only model) is a sports automobile developed by John DeLorean's DeLorean Motor Company for the American market from 1981 to 1983. The vehicle has gull-wing doors, a revolutionary fibreglass body construction with a steel backbone chassis, and exterior brushed stainless steel body panels. Its look made it famous and iconic, and a modified DMC-12 was immortalised as the DeLorean time machine in the Back to the Future media series.

In October 1976, the first prototype was released. Production began in 1981 at Dunmurry, a suburb of southwest Belfast, Northern Ireland, with the first DMC-12 rolling off the assembly line on January 21, 1981. Several aspects of the automobile were altered throughout manufacturing, including the hood type, wheels, and interior. Before manufacture ceased in early 1983, about 9,000 DMC-12s were produced.

The DMC-12 was the company's lone model, and it was eventually closed when the US automotive market saw its worst fall since the 1930s. In 2007, it was estimated that around 6,500 DeLorean Motor vehicles remained in existence.

In 1995, British entrepreneur Stephen Wynne established a separate firm in Texas under the name "DeLorean Motor Company." Soon after, he obtained the trademark on the stylised "DMC" logo, as well as the original DeLorean Motor Company's remaining parts inventory. At its suburban Humble, Texas site, the firm creates new automobiles on a "made to order" basis using existing vehicle identification number (VIN) plates using new old stock (NOS) parts, original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and replica parts.

On January 27, 2016, DMC in Texas revealed plans to construct around 300-325 duplicate 1982 DMC-12 cars, with each costing slightly under $100,000.
