Pirelli CA67 Cinturato 185/80R15 93V
Patented in 1951, Pirelli’s first radial tyre incorporated a great deal of advanced thinking in terms of its construction and performance. It became a very popular fitment for performance vehicles throughout the 1950s and 60s, from Lancia and Alfa Romeo to Maserati to Ferrari. As well as this core of Italian performance vehicles that used the Cinturato, car manufacturers from many other countries offered the tyre as an optional fitment in the 1960s. Models from Porsche and even Volvo were often fitted with these tyres by their more well-heeled customers.
Latterly called the CA67, this pattern of Cinturato is still manufactured by Pirelli in a wide range of sizes, using modern materials, but keeping its traditional design.
This 185VR15 size Pirelli Cinturato CA67 is an ideal tyre for the AC Cobra 289, the Jaguar E-Type S1.5/S2, the Morgan Plus 8, Bristol 410/411, Jensen Interceptor Mk1, and the first TVR Tuscan.
It also fits the following cars, where this size was either an option, or a radial replacement for an original crossply size: Aston Martin DB5 and DB6; Jaguar Mk1/Mk2 and E-Type S1; Mercedes 300SL Gullwing and Roadster; Rover P5B; AC Ace/Aceca/Greyhound; and Jensen 541 and CV-8.
