911 Carrera Tyres

Carrera Tyres

The Porsche Carrera has seen some mayor innovations in tyre design. Fitting a 60% profile Cinturato CN36 tyre in 1973 was ground breaking, and going to the extent of having larger 215mm section rear tyres was pretty out there. In 1973, there were still lots of car manufacturers still fitting crossply tyres, and then there was the 911 Carrera RS with 185/70VR15 on the front, a big tyre in it’s day and then a 215/60VR15 Pirelli Cinturato CN36 on the rear. It is difficult to appreciate how wild a tyre that was.

Porsche then also jumped on the super low profile Pirelli Cinturato P7 the minute it was produced having a tyre as wide as 225 was only in the relms of massive cars like the Aston Martin V8 and the Ferrari 512 BB, However these cars were still only using 70% profile tyres, where the Porsche 930 Carrera Turbo was running a 225/50R15 ground braking tyre from Pirelli the famous P7.
