Vintage Ferrari Tyres
Ferrari, in their early road car days, tended to fit PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ tyres. The first cars fitted the 165R400 (the first radial tyres) made for Millimetric wheels. They soon moved onto fitting 185VR16 then 185VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67 then in 1964 PIRELLI developed the 205VR15 CN72 CINTURATO ™ HS and the majority of vintage Ferrari of the later 60's changed to this tyre.
Classic Ferrari tyres
The classic Ferrari tyre Michelin XWX is what is mostly associated with classic Ferrari's of the 70's and early 80's. Tyres such as the 205/70VR14 for the Dino and 215/70VR15 for the 365 cars are still made by Michelin today.
Youngtimer Ferrari tyres
In the mid 70's Michelin developed the ground breaking TRX tyres that gave extraordinary comfort for a tyre with such a low side wall. Michelin TRX tyres are the tyre fitted to youngtimer Ferrari's of the 80's. Youngtimer Ferrari's such as the 308GTB fitted 220/55VR390 TRX the youngtimer Ferrari Mondial fitted 240/55x390 TRX.
