Best Tyres for a Ford Cortina

Lotus Cortina Tyres

  • The first Lotus Cortina came fitted with Dunlop Tyres.
  • They had a crossply 6.00-13 option or 165 R 13 Dunlop SP Sport Aquajet.
  • Ford soon changed the Lotus Cortina to fitting 165R13 PIRELLI CINTURATO, but it is not currently produced in this size.
  • For now we would suggest fitting Lotus Cortina with 165 HR 13 Michelin XAS FF as the best performance tyre.
  • We hope to have a production of the original Pirelli Cinturato soon.

Independent Tyre Test - The Results

In the world of modern tyres it is commonplace to come across a tyre test. Sadly in the world of classic tyres the investment never seems to be there to do a proper modern tyre test. However, a German magazine in July 2016 conducted this modern tyre test using classic tyres. This classic tyre test has been translated from German to English. What is remarkable in this tyre test is quite how well the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 classic tyre performed in the table at the end. The scores in this table are not scored in relation to the other tyres in the test, so when a score of 1 is recorded, then that is a perfect score for a classic tyre or a modern tyre. It is wonderful to see that these classic PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 tyres can give such exemplary results.


History of the Ford Cortina

From 1962 to 1982, the Cortina was built in five iterations (Mark I through Mark V, but the final one was officially named the Cortina 80) and was the best-selling car in the UK throughout the 1970s. It was created as a rival to the Morris Oxford and Vauxhall Victor under the name "Archbishop." The automobile was originally planned to be called the Ford Consul 225, but it was actually introduced under the name Consul Cortina until it was dropped after a redesign in 1964.

Britain had a special love affair with the Cortina, despite the fact that it was essentially a rebadged Taunus at times, and from the MK I to the MK V it kept itself relevant as a reasonably priced practical car on the market and was the best-selling car every year from 1972 to 1982 when it was surpassed by the Ford Escort.
