Ferrari 365 GTC
The Following Film about 330GTC tyres, is relevant to the Ferrari 365GTC because they fit the same 205/80VR14 Michelin XWX tyres.
For Ferrari 365 GTC tyres the 205VR14 Michelin XWX is the correct full 80% profile tyre and pretty much the only tyre available for this fantastic car.
It is important to point out that the 365 GTC fits a full profile tyre, 205/80VR14. Categorically not a 205/70VR14; that is completely the wrong diameter.
Ferrari 365 GTC Tyres
- Ferrari fitted 205/VR14, full 80 profile tyres to their 365 GTC. The size could also be expressed as 205/80VR14.
- We strongly recommend the 205 WR 14 Michelin XWX for the 365GTC, and we propose fitting Michelin 14F inner tubes.
- Suggested tyre pressures for a Ferrari 365 GTC are 30psi front and 32psi rear in 205/80VR14 Tyres.
- For more information see the Ferrari 365GTC tyre pressure table below.
Ferrari 365 GTC Recommended Tyres
Ferrari 365GTC Tyre Pressure
The 330 GTC Owners Manual shows the following for 205/80VR14 Tyres:
- <110 mph = F29/R33
- >110 mph = F33/R37
- >135 mph = F38/R42
The 365 GTC Addendum to the 330 GTC manual shows:
- <124 mph = F27/R31
- >124 mph = F31/R37
However through research with current Ferrari 365 GTC owners on the forum Ferrarichat, it seems that the commonly accepted tyre pressure for the 365 GTC is 30psi in the front and 32 psi in the rear. However what is critical with these cars is to fit a full profile 205VR14 tyre or 205/80VR14, not a 205/70VR14 tyre.
Here is a link to data about the the later 1971 – 1972 Ferrari 365GTC/4 Tyres.
History of the Ferrari 365 GTC
The Ferrari 365 was a powerful front-engine, rear-wheel-drive 2- and 2+2-seater grand tourer line produced by Ferrari, first exhibited at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, the replacement for the 330 and 500 Superfast. The GTC and GTS, like the rest of the 365, were powered by a 4,390 cc Colombo V12 engine. It produced 316 horsepower at 6,600 rpm when fed by three Weber 40 DFI twin-choke carburettors. These vehicles were able to attain a 50:50 weight distribution by merging the transmission and the final drive. The 365 GTC and GTS retained the independent rear suspension of its predecessor, which employed coil springs and wishbones. The brakes were all-around servo-assisted discs with a split circuit system.
The 330 GTC and GTS were replaced by the 365 GTC and GTS in 1968. The engine was significantly redesigned, increasing its capacity from 4.0 litres and 300 horsepower to 4.4 litres and 320 horsepower. The design remained almost the same across the two body styles, with the only major difference being the transfer of vents from behind the front wheels to the bonnet. Between 1968 and 1970, 168 coupés (22 of which were right-hand-drive) were built. It was replaced by the Ferrari 365 GTC/4. Only 20 spiders were built before the Daytona Spider based on the 365 GTB/4 took its place.
