The 205/55YR16 PIRELLI CINTURATO P7 N is a classic 205/55 R16 performance tire from Pirelli’s iconic P7 range. The 1970s supercar evolution, marked by impressive speed and power, prompted the need for wider, lower-profile tires. Pirelli introduced the Pirelli P7 in January 1976, first debuting on the Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo, This 205/55 YR 16 classic tire was soon adopted by prestigious models like the Lamborghini Urraco, Countach, De Tomaso Pantera, and select Ferrari models. While the original P7 had a V-rated speed of 149 mph, its modern counterpart flaunts a Y-rating, capable of 186 mph. Notably, many P7 tires come with Porsche’s ‘N’ stamp, marking their approval for classic performance vehicles. Pirelli has revived the P7, blending contemporary materials with its iconic tread pattern, ensuring it remains a preferred classic tire.

From 1985 Porsche started to offer 16” wheels as an option on its 911, fitting the new 205/55YR16 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ P7 N on the front and 225/50 YR 16 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ P7 on the rear of the Porsche 930 Turbo, 911 Carrera Coupe, 911 Sport, and Targa Sport and 911 Cabriolet and Cabriolet Sport.
