Classic Ford Tyres
On the following pages, Longstone Classic Tyres give classic tyre fitment recommendations for historic Ford cars.
There have been some great developments with regards to classic Ford tyres. In 1968, desperate to improve the safety of their cars Ford started to offer Pirelli Cinturato radial tyres. Pirelli have now made the classic Ford tyre 175/70VR13 Pirelli Cinturato CN36. Original equipment on many for the classic Ford Escort Mexico and RS of the 1970s. As well as the MK1 & MK2 Escort RS tyre, Pirelli have also made a 185/70VR13 Cinturato CN36. Perfect for the Ford Cortina, Ford Capri & the early Ford Sierra.
Tyres for Post Classic, Youngtimer Ford Cars
There have been some great developments in post classic car tyres for the Youngtimer cars of the 1980s, 1990s and the early 2000s with the introduction of tyres like:
- The 195/60R15 Primacy 3 for Post classic Fords such as Fiesta, Focus Fusion and Mondeo.
