185/70VR13 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36
Manufacturer Name: Pirelli
The original fitment for the Jensen Healey was a 185/70VR13 tire, certain fortunate models would have come equipped with the authentic 185/70VR13 PIRELLI CINTURATO™ CN36 tires. Another perfect match for the 185/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 can be found in the Vauxhall Chevette Sports Hatchback 1600GL, GLS, and 2000 GLS models. Additionally, Opel offered the 5.5” wide 13” rim on the Manta GT/E, which accommodated 185/70R13 tires. Interestingly, the 185/70 VR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN36 served as the original equipment for select Mantas as well.
Although the size 185/70VR13 was a very popular size for cars such as a Ford Cortina, Opel Manta or a Vauxhall Chevette, it is also a wider, low-profile alternative that people would fit instead of a 165 R13 full-profile classic tire. Cars such as the BMW 2002 and Ford Escort models would have 185/70 R13 tires fitted as an aftermarket option.
