Ferrari 212 Tyres


  • he Ferrari 212 originally equipped 640 - 15 Pirelli Stella Bianca crossply tyres, sadly not currently made in this size.
  • The 185 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 is an excellent handling and period radial tyre. We would suggest this is the best road tyre for a Ferrari 212.
  • For this tyre we suggest the Michelin 15F Offset Valve inner tube.
  • Another alternative to this would be the 180 HR 15 Michelin XAS, which offers light, progressive steering.
  • The 180 HR 15 Michelin XAS is best suited to Michelin 15E inner tubes if you desire them.
  • To corroborate this the image at the bottom of the page shows the original Ferrari manual for cars such as the 212, 250, 340 & 342 which states that the Ferrari 212 would fit PIRELLI tyres in the size 6.40 - 15. The radial equivalent size to 6.40 - 15 is 185-15 which informs our recommendation of the 185 VR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67.


  • These tyre recommendations apply to both the 212 Inter and the 212 Export.

The History of the Ferrari 212

In 1951, the Ferrari 212 Inter succeeded the successful 166 and 195 Inter grand tourers. The 212, which was debuted at the Brussels Motor Show that year, was a development of the 166; a road-going sports vehicle capable of winning international races. The wheelbase of the Inter was 102.4 inches longer than that of the Export, which was 98.4 inches. A 2.6 L bored-out (68 mm) version of Ferrari's Colombo V12 engine powered both cars. The single Weber 36DCF Inter carburettor generated 148 hp, while the triple Weber Export produced 163 hp. Improved cylinder heads boosted power by 5 PS in 1952. (4 kW). Only 82 were produced.

The Ferrari 212 Export was powered by a SOHC, 2-valve per cylinder Colombo V12 engine that was more powerful than the preceding generation. The internal bore and stroke dimensions had been increased to 2.7 by 2.3 inches. The total displacement was 2,562.51 cubic centimetres (2.6 L). Maximum power output was from 148 horsepower at 6500 rpm to 163 horsepower at 7000 rpm, depending on carburettor type, with a compression ratio of 8.4:1. The engine received fuel from three Weber 32DCF or three Weber 36DCF carburettors.

The exceptions were the 212 MM with triple quad-barrel Webers and certain early variants with only a single carburettor. The ignition system used a single spark plug per cylinder that was powered by two coils. A wet sump system was used to lubricate the engine. The gearbox was non-synchronized and 5-speed. Only 27 of these magnificent automobiles were manufactured.
