Avon CR39 220/65VR390 97V

Avon re-introduced their classic ‘Turbospeed’ name for a range of high-performance, luxury-car radial tyres several decades after the original Turbospeed crossplies had adorned brands like Rolls Royce and Bentley.

This CR39 pattern is particularly special, in that it was Avon’s take on the fashionable metric tyre design of the 1980s. All the major tyre companies developed metric fitment tyres in the period – allied to specific wheel designs (in this case, the ‘TD’). Originally found on more expensive vehicles, the trend eventually trickled down to more popular vehicles, but never quite managed to challenge the status quo. This can make finding new metric tyres quite difficult, but Avon continues to make this size for Vintage Tyres.

A high-performance tyre, with a high load-rating, the CR39 became the original equipment tyre for Jaguar’s revolutionary new XJ40 models in the 1980s, and is now the only tyre offered in this size by any manufacturer.

This 220/65VR390 Avon Turbospeed CR39 radial tyre is ideal for the following: Jaguar XJ40 6-cylinder models; Daimler Sovereign (XJ40 derivative).

This is a metric radial tubeless tyre (replaces TD220/65R390)
