205 VR 14 Tyres


205 VR 14 Michelin XWX on Ferrari 330 GTC

It is important to note that this is not the more common and later 205/70 VR 14 XWX tyre, fitted to cars like the Ferrari Dino and Mercedes and BMW of the 1970s. This is a genuine full profile tall side wall 205 VR 14 tyre, which could also be called a 205/80 VR 14 as the side wall height is 80% of 205mm making it a tall side wall tyre. Though it has the VR rating on the side wall it is actually W speed rated to 170 mph, however when this tyre was first developed back in the 1960s the W speed rating had not as yet been introduced.

It is also worth mentioning that when this 205 VR 14 XWX tyre was first introduce it was called a 205 VR 14 Michelin X, then in 1969 it went on to be called the 205 VR 14 Michelin XVR. Then finally in 1972 that same tread pattern was used and the name changed to 205 VR 14 Michelin XWX as we know it today.


Michelin 205 VR 14 XWX tyre fitment


Because of the unusual size and shape of the 205 VR 14 XWX we are very pleased Michelin still continue make them, because they gives a life line to the fantastic cars that they fit: Ferrari 275 GTB and GTB/4, Ferrari 330 GTC, 330 GTS, Maserati Indy and the Jaguar MK10. Not a huge amount of cars, but it does beg the question that without this continuous availability from Michelin, how many of these cars would still be with us today.


205 VR 14 Inner Tubes


The Michelin 205 VR 14 tyre is listed as a tyre that is capable of being used tubeless. However many of the 1960s cars that these full profile 205 VR 14 tyres are fitted to would have had wire wheels, and as a result need inner tubes. We recommend all wire wheels need inner tubes. Also many of the alloy or steel wheel of this period did not have the safety hump that we are confident makes a safe tubeless wheel, so we would suggest in the majority of cases where a 205 VR 14 XWX or any other 205 VR 14 tyre for that matter we would suggest using the Michelin 14 H 13 inner tube.


The Overall Diameter of the 205 VR 14 Michelin XWX is 686 mm and the width is 208 mm.
