Porsche 911 SC Tyres

Porsche introduced the 911SC models in 1978 and continued to fit 185/70WR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 N4 on the front and 215/60WR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 N4 on the rear. Fortunately these tyres are made again by Pirelli. Porsche have got involved with the project and awarded these tyres the Porsche N4 homologation and recommend these tyres as ideal for the early 911 SC cars.

Recently a German classic car magazine conducted a back to back tyre test against the other classic road tyres produced in the size 185/70R15, the Pirelli 185/70 WR15 CN36 won hands down.

The Porsche 911SC was also offered with 16” wheels. In fact, in some countries such as the UK, 16” wheels were fitted as standard, using the fabulous super low profile Pirelli Cinturato P7 that had been fitted to the Porsche 930. The 911 SC fitted 205/55R16 Cinturato P7 on the front and 225/50R16 Cinturato P7 rear. Later Porsche fitted 245/45R16 Cinturato P7 to some of their cars which is ideal if you have 9” rims on the rear.

These 16” Pirelli P7 tyres also have been tested by Porsche and achieved the N4 homologation.


Classic Porsche Tyres

In the world of modern tyres it is common place to come across a tyre test. However 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 on classic Porsche tyres. This classic Porsche 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 Porsche tyres performed in the table at the end. The scores in this table are not scored in relationship 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 Porsche tyres can give such exemplary results.

The simple time honoured shape of a Porsche 911 has been something that has inspired classic car enthusiasts for years. The refined elegant pure shape is unmistakeable. Now Longstone tyres, with the support from the world's best tyre manufacturers are able to supply tyres for classic 911's.
