Fiat Dino

Fiat Dino 2000 Tyres

The earlier, and more numerous cars, the 1967-1969 fiat Dino 2000 coupe and spider use a 185 series tyre. Currently Longstone Tyres would suggest the 185HR14 Michelin MXV-P as a great tyre for a Dino 2000. It is the carcass of these Michelin tyres that makes the handling of cars like the Dino direct and predictable. We believe you can just about get the 205/70R14 tyres that were fitted to the later 2400 Dino under the earlier car though it would be tight. Many Fiat Dino owners feel the 185 makes the handling of the lighter car (alloy block vs iron block) much sweeter. However we would suggest that if you do want to move up to the 205/70R14 tyre size fitting a proper period tyre such as the Michelin XWX or the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 will diminish the derogatory effects of fitting a larger tyre because these period tyres were developed to be fitted to a car like this and still provide progressive handling where a more modern tyre will be developed to be fitted to a very different kind of car.

2400 Fiat Dino Tyres

In October 1969 Fiat released the new Dino 2400, which was produced through till 1973. The increased engine capacity improved the low down torque which improved its behaviour in traffic. Also by 1969 low profile tyres had been invented and PIRELLI had introduced its CINTURATO ™ CN36 so the new 2400 Dino took advantage of this new technology, and fitted 205/70R14 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 which we would suggest would still be perfect tyres for the later 2400 Dino.
