Maserati 250F 1954–1958

  • The Maserati 250F fitted a variety of different Borrani wheels and tyres. Initially all 16” moved onto 17” and even 15” as the years went by.
  • Predominantly the standard front wheel and tyre combination was a Borrani 4” wide RW2963 with 5.50-16 PIRELLI STELLA BIANCA.
  • The rears of the Maserati 250F varied between 5” and 6” Borrani wheels, with 700-16, 650-16 or 6.00-16 PIRELLI STELLA BIANCA.
  • Currently both the 550-16 and 600-16 STELLA BIANCA are usually stock items. We hope in the near future Pirelli will produce a 650-16 STELLA BIANCA.
  • For a lot of the Maserati 250F currently racing, the race regs will specify the need to fit 16” Dunlop Racing Tyres.
  • Wire wheels should have innertubes in them, for 550-16 tyres we suggest the Michelin 16E. For 600-16 and 650-16 Michelin 16F are the innertubes we consider the best.
  • If you want a racing tube with a metal valve stem, we also have the 550-650X16 Race Innertube.

Maserati 250F History

The Maserati 250F was an Italian racing car that competed in '2.5 litre' Formula One racing between January 1954 and November 1960. There were just twenty-six copies produced in total. The SSG 220 bhp (@ 7400 rpm) 2.5-litre Maserati A6 straight-six engine powered the 250F. The 250F featured ribbed 13.4" drum brakes, wishbone independent front suspension, and a De Dion tube axle.

The 250F made its debut at the 1954 Argentine Grand Prix, when Juan Manuel Fangio scored the first of two victories before joining the new Mercedes-Benz team. Stirling Moss raced his own privately owned 250F for the whole 1954 season, while Fangio won the Drivers' World Championship with points earned with both Maserati and Mercedes-Benz. Prince Bira was another driver who preferred the 250F. A 5-speed transmission, SU fuel injection, and Dunlop disc brakes were added in 1955. Jean Behra led a five-man labour team that included Luigi Musso. Stirling Moss won the Monaco and Italian Grands Prix in 1956, both in factory cars.

By the 1958 season, the new rear-engined F1 vehicles had completely surpassed the 250F. The vehicle, however, remained popular among privateers, like Maria Teresa de Filippis, and was used by back markers throughout the 1960 F1 season, the final for the 2.5-litre format. With 277 entrants, the 250F raced in 46 Formula One championship races, winning eight of them. The success of the 250F drivers was not restricted to World Championship events, with several non-championship races won across the world.
