Michelin TRX Tyres Explained


Ferrari 512bbi tyres

The later Ferrari 512BBi came fitted with 240/55x415 Michelin TRX tyres all round while the final incarnation of the car used the same tyre set up as the Ferrari Testarossa, namely, 240/45x 415 Michelin TRX tyres at the front and 280/45x415 Michelin TRX tyres at the rear.


Ferrari 512BB and 512BBi Wheels


Ferrari 512BB on Michelin XWX

The wheel situation with the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer classic cars can be a little confusing.

The first Berlinetta Boxer, the 365GT/4 BB had 7” wheels front and rear, with 215/70VR15 tyres front and rear.

When they upped the engine size from 4.4 litres to 4.9 litres and called the car the 512 BB they maintained the same front 215/70VR15 tyre on the same size 7” wheel. However they fitted a very wide 9” wheel on the rear with a 225/70VR15 tyre.

Then when they updated to the BB512i with fuel injection and millimetric Michelin TRX classic tyres, they continued to have different size front and rear wheel widths (180mm front & 210mm rear) However they did fit the same size 240/55VR415 Michelin TRX vintage Ferrari tyres.

Confusion can be caused because the continuation, if you like, the next rear engine 12 cylinder classic Ferrari to take over from the Berlinetta Boxer 512i was the Ferrari Testarossa. The Testrossa carried on with millimetric TRX wheels, this later generation of Ferrari, did also fit a larger rear wheel than the front wheel. However unlike the 512BBi, the Testarossa did have different size front and rear tyres.
