Ferrari 275 Tires
Ferrari 275 GTB and 275 GTB/4 Tires
In 1964, when the 275 GTB was first introduced, the Pirelli Cinturato 205 R14 CN72 was the highest-performance tyre available for vintage Ferraris fitted with 14” wheels during that period, but the tire is not currently in production. Currently, Michelin manufactures the 205VR14 Michelin XWX, offering a unique opportunity to have a period tyre with suitable performance and a carcass structure suited to the chassis setup of these vintage Ferrari supercars. When Ferrari added a couple of camshafts and upgraded to the 275 GTB/4, they stuck with the same wheel and tire specification. Over the years, when these 205VR14 vintage Ferrari tires were difficult to procure, some owners fitted the 15” race wheel setup with 215/70VR15 Michelin XWX and, in some cases, to keep the steering lighter, faster, and more precise, they might fit 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX on the front.
Note that for Ferrari 275 GTB models fitted with 15” wheels, these tire options are now also manufactured by Pirelli with the 205/70VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN12 and the 215/70VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN12.
275 GTS Tires
The roadster version of the Ferrari 275 GTB, the splendid Ferrari 275 GTS, shared many features with the Berlinetta version, including the 14” wheels, which are still best suited to a set of 205VR14 Michelin XWX tires.
