Pirelli CN72 Cinturato 205R15 97W

Pirelli CN72 Cinturato 205R15 97W

Pirelli developed its high-speed radial tyre in the early 1960s, specifically aiming it at the new performance cars being released by Italian manufacturers such as Maserati and Ferrari, as well as the new Italian-American hybrids like the Iso Grifo. It helped to prompt a move from 16in to 15in wheels in the period.

These tyres were referred to by Pirelli as ‘HS’ to signify high speed, and carried a pattern called CN72 and CN73 aimed at providing a quieter more comfortable ride. The tyre is available in a size commonly used by 1960s supercars, and is also suitable as a radial replacement for original crossply fitments.

This 205VR15 size Pirelli CN72 is an ideal tyre for: AC Cobra 427 (1966-67) and AC 428 (1965-73), Aston Martin DB6 (Series 2) and DBS, Bentley T1, Bristol 412 and 603, Daimler DS420, Ferrari 330, 365, 500 Superfast; Lamborghini 350GT, 400GT, Espada (prior to the move to 70 profile tyres), Islero, Miura P400, Iso Grifo, Maserati Quattroporte, 5000GT, Ghibli, Mexico, Mistral, Sebring and Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow.
