205/70 VR15 Tyres

205/70 VR15 is a low profile version of a 185 VR15 or a 185/80 VR15. Quite a few cars of the 1960s like the Ferrari 250 GTE fitted 185VR15 tyres, and many of these cars now fit a 205/70 VR15 tyre because they were cheaper and easier to get hold of in the 1990s. tyres like the 205/70 VR15 Pirelli P4000 were a great value tyre, but are now old and need replacing. We would suggest a car the originally fitted 185VR15 will handle better on a 185 VR15 tyre, but if you like the look of a wider tyre then the XWX 205/70 VR15 Michelin will suit the older car set up than a more modern 205/70 VR15 tyre.

Michelin XWX

Michelin’s range of XWX tyres are period tire that started at the end of the 60’s and was original equipment on fabulous cars to well into the 80’s. The XWX range of tyres were fitted to some of the world’s most exotic cars such as, Lamborghini MuiraFerrari 512, Mercedes 450SEL, Maserati Ghibli, because of it’s ability to withstand speeds of 170 mph. As well as excellent performance, 100% quality control, the XWX also  has an incredibly evocative tread pattern.

205/70VR15 90 W Tires

It wasn’t until 1968, when Jaguars XJ6 became the first car to fit low profile tyres as standard equipment, with the tire size 205/70VR15. When low profile tires first came out they used letter instead of numbers to describe the tires width, hence initially the XJ6 tires were called  ER/70VR15. To make tyre description a little easier to understand that tire size is now simply called a 205/70VR15. Meaning 205mm wide; 70% of the width of the tire is the height of the side wall with 15 being the rim size. 90W is the load and speed rating; and the 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX is speed rated up to 170mph.

It is also worth noting that in many cases, people choose  to fit 205/70VR15 tyres as a more modern low profile of a 185VR15 Tire. For instance a large portion of the Ferrari 250GT  cars that originally fitted 185VR15 Pirelli CA67 Cinturato tires would often have  modernised the car slightly by fitting 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX.
