PIRELLI CINTURATO CN12 205/70 R 15 tyres are high-quality classic performance tyres; providing progressive sporty handling, an impressive W-speed rating, and an authentic classic car look. The PIRELLI CINTURATO CN12 205/70 VR15 is developed to complement the chassis of cars made in the 70s, and 80s, generating the ideal driving forces for classic cars. Modern tyres are designed for contemporary car chassis that are more rigid and would negatively affect the handling characteristics of classic cars.

205/70 R 15 Tyres


The tyre size 205/70 R 15 was not fitted to many different classic cars as standard. From 1968 on, Jaguar started to fit ER/70R15 tyres to its V12 E-type with power steering and its XJ6. The original tyres fitted on these Jaguars were the ER/70 R 15 Dunlop SP Sport. (this tyre also got the nickname Aquajet). However as Jaguar improved its Luxury XJ range of cars and introduced the XJS it needed a better tyre than the old Aquajet so Jaguar approached Pirelli and asked them to produce a new tyre, and between them, Jaguar and Pirelli developed the Cinturato P5 in the late 1970s.

Although this 205/70 R 15 Cinturato CN12 is a fantastic tyre and we are very lucky to have it, the CN12 is an earlier 1970s tyre and better suited to the sports cars of that period, but for a Jaguar XJ6 or XJS we would recommend the 205/70 R 15 Pirelli Cinturato P5 as the best Jag tyres.

The tyre size ER/70R15 is simply an outdated obsolete way of saying 205/70 R 15. 205/70 R 15 tyres were also fitted to the Jensen Interceptor, Citroen SM, and Maserati Merak.

In the 1970s, having experienced the various alternative tyres, Jensen improved the ride and handling of its flagship car; the Jensen Interceptor, by fitting 205/70 R 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN12. It is worth noting that Pirelli also makes the 215/70 VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN12 for the Jensen Interceptor FF.


205/70 R 15


Many cars of the 1960s fitted 185R15 tyres, such as the E-type Jaguar, Ferrari 250 and Aston Martin DB5 and early DB6. In 1968 many of these manufacturers took advantage of the new wider low-profile tyre technology and adjusted the set-up of these classic cars to fit 205/70 R 15 tyres instead. It is worth noting that in period when a manufacturer moved onto a 205/70 section from a 185, they would adjust the camber and caster settings of the car. This would often happen in conjunction with fitting power steering.

Many people with cars such as an Aston Martin DB4 and a Ferrari 250 GT/E that fitted a 185VR15 Pirelli Cinturato as their original radial tyre, would fit a 205/70 R 15 instead because they were cheaper or they liked the look of a wider tyre. It is worth noting that the steering will not be as nimble with a 205/70 R 15. However if as is often the case you feel a car might look better with a wider tyre fitting a 205/70 R 15 Pirelli CN12, will have a less derogatory effect than fitting a non-period 205/70 R 15.


205/70 R 15 Innertubes


If your Pirelli 205/70 R 15 Cinturato CN12 tyres are being fitted to a classic car with wire wheels, or you are not convinced in the quality of your wheels and feel they may be porous, as a 205/70 R 15 CN12 is a 70% profile there is no problem with fitting an innertube. Under which circumstances we would suggest that the Michelin 15 F 13 inner tube is the best 205/70 R 15 innertube.

If you are confident of the quality of your wheels, and are happy these wheels are suited to fitting tubeless tyres, then the Pirelli 205/70 R 15 Cinturato CN12 is also suited to be run tubeless.
