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 Vauxhall Astra
Built between 1979-1984 the Vauxhall Astra was a rebadged Opel Kadett D that replaced the Vauxhall Viva as well as some versions of the Vauxhall Chevette. It was the first Vauxhall model to feature front wheel drive, and would come in a number of options for its overhead-camshaft engine from 1300& 1600 to later in 1983 a 1800 fuel-injected version. There was also a van version, though this was sold under the name of Bedford Astravan.
