Ferrari 330 Tires
Ferrari 330 America & 330 GT 2+2 Tires
The first of the 2+2 330 Ferraris, constructed before 1964, the 330 America, was equipped with 6.5” Borrani wheels and adorned with 185VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67 tires. However, Pirelli developed the 205VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN72 tires in 1964. These tires were notably significant during that period and could endure the potent power of the splendid vintage Ferrari V12 engines. From 1964 to 1967, the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2, which fitted 1/2" wider wheels than the prior 330 America, accommodated the new 205VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN72 tires. The vintage Ferrari community is heartened by Pirelli's decision to manufacture the full-profile 205VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN72 tires once again. For quite a while, vintage Ferraris from this epoch had been compelled to fit more modern, lower-profile tires from the late 1960s and ‘70s. Tires with a 70% profile, being both wider and having a smaller diameter, along with subtle variations in carcass structure, alter both the handling and appearance of a classic car.
Ferrari 330 GTC and 330 GTS Tires
Both the vintage Ferrari 330 GTC coupe and the Spyder version, the 330 GTS, fitted 14” wheels with the full-profile 205VR14 tires. Currently, we would suggest the only full-profile 205 section 14” tire worth considering for the 330 GTC and 330 GTS is the 205VR14 Michelin XWX.
A mistake often made with these vintage Ferraris involves fitting later tires. Classic Ferrari tires are not the same as vintage Ferrari tires. So, the 330 models of vintage Ferrari need full-profile 205-section tires. The 205VR14 vintage tires on the old 330 GTS and 330 GTC should not be confused with the later 205/70VR14 Michelin XWX that was fitted to the Ferrari Dino of 1968. These low-profile 205/70 tires are considerably smaller in diameter.
