The majority of Volvo Amazon's that left the factory would have fitted crossply tyres in the size 5.90X15 or 6.00X15, whilst the estate cars mostly fitted 6.40X15. The of last Volvo Amazon cars fitted a set of 165HR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO &trade and this would still be the best tyre to fit to any of these cars today. For an alternate option Michelin also produce a 165SR15 Michelin XZX which is also a great tyre to fit to an Amazon and the price is exceptionally good, but it does have a lower speed rating than the CINTURATO &trade.

History of the Volvo Amazon
Built between 1956-1970, the Volvo Amazon was a mid-sized car that came as a 2-door coupe, 4-door sedan and 5-door station wagon (estate). It is notable as being the first car to feature front seat belts as standard equipment, also later becoming the first car to feature three-point seat belts. Initially called the Amason, German motorcycle company Kreidler had already registered the name whereupon it was agreed to be called Amason within Sweden before changing the spelling to Amazon, then finally changing to the three number naming system and becoming the 120 Series.
