185/70VR15 Tyres


In 1968 when the development of low-profile tyre technology hit the road, PIRELLI were at the forefront with the 185/70VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 N. The rounded carcass offers progressive steering, which is critical to cars of this period, and it cannot be replaced by modern tyres without spoiling the handling of these cars. It is worth pointing out that although the tyre size 185/70VR15 was not original equipment on many cars, a 185/70VR15 tyre is a low-profile alternative to a tyre of the size 165R15, which is why this PIRELLI 185/70VR15 CINTURATO ™ CN36 is a great choice for people that want to put a bigger tyre on their TR4, TR5, TR6, Volvo P1800, MGC, Austin Healey 100/4, Austin Healey 100/6, and Austin Healey 3000.

185/70VR15 Early Porsche Tyres


It is fair to say that the size 185/70VR15 is predominantly associated with the early Porsche 911, as this tyre was original equipment on a 911 from 1969, when the CN36 first came out, right through 1986, when they went slightly larger on the front, having of course adjusted the car to suit more modern tyre carcasses.

There has been some extensive testing of what tyres suit the early 911 best and the German article below proves categorically that the CN36 CINTURATO ™ is the one; this is backed up by Porsche awarding these tyres the N Porsche homologation. In 1972, Porsche fitted wider rims to it's Carrera and RS models and they fitted a 215/60WR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 as a rear tyre. This tyre is also currently being produced by PIRELLI and is Porsche homologated with the 'N'. As time went by, the 911 fitted the larger tyres across the range right into the 911 SC models. It was fitting 185/70VR15 CN36 on the front and 215/60R15 CINTURATO ™ CN36 on the rear. This page shows you a fitment guide for Classic Porsche tyres.

185/70VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 N

Although not a great deal of cars actually fitted the tyre size 185/70VR15 as standard equipment, many cars, such as the Volvo P1800 and Triumph TR6 Porsche 912, that would have originally fitted the tyre size 165R15 might want to fit a more modern, up-to-date low-profile tyre, and a 185/70VR15 would have the same overall diameter while offering a wider section. Under these circumstances, PIRELLI's CINTURATO ™ CN36 would be an excellent choice, because although it is a wider tyre, it is designed with these sorts of cars in mind. A more modern tyre of the size 185/70VR15 would have a very different carcass, designed to be used in different circumstances.

The 185/70VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 has the same side wall makings as it did in period. Due to new rubber technology and improved testing facilities, this tyre is now speed-rated at 168mph. This rating has been added to the tyre's side wall in very small letters so as not to detract from is period look.



The 185/70VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 N is a great value tyre considering its quality. These tyres are even better value when purchased as sets.

    The gold standard for early Porsche 911's. I used to use Avons but these are much better than the more track focused avons for my use
