Brand: Dunlop | Aston Martin DB5 1963 to 1966
Originally fitted with a 670-15 crossply tyre with the highest available speed rating. If a radial tyre is required, then a 185VR15 is the best replacement size.
The DB5’s reputation raises it above the other models of the David Brown era, despite the fact it was just one part of the evolution of the DB4, 5 and 6 family. It’s lasting association with a global entertainment brand notwithstanding, the DB5 brought increased sophistication and performance over the DB4, but without the extra luxury and heft of the DB6. Powerful, good-looking and with 5-speeds and discs all round, it was a great 60s GT.
