Independent Tyre Test - The Results
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 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 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 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 tyres can give such exemplary results.
History of the Renault 18
Built between 1978-1983, the Renault 18 was intended as a replacement for the Renault 12 (although the 12 remained in production until 1980). There would be many variations over its lifetime, with Station Wagon, Estate (Renault 18 'Break') and Turbo versions all being produced. It would eventually be replaced by the Renault 21.
