For prestigious sports car manufacturers, including Ferrari, Maserati, ISO, Lamborghini, Alfa Romeo, and Lancia, it was commonplace to equip their vehicles with the renowned PIRELLI CINTURATO™ CA67 tires. This pioneering tire was also adopted as standard by other esteemed European manufacturers like Rover, Morgan, MG, and Porsche.

During the 1960s, many prominent sports car makers still opted for crossply tires due to the high cost of the CINTURATO™ CA67 HS. Alternative radial tires did not offer the desired progressive handling characteristics required for a sports car. However, an intriguing historical fact reveals that Aston Martin, under David Brown's leadership, offered the 185VR16 PIRELLI CINTURATO™ CA67 HS as the radial tire option for their vehicles. Even today, we highly recommend the PIRELLI CINTURATO™ HS tires for Aston Martin models from the 1950s and 1960s.

During that period, Avon did not produce radial tires. However, the CINTURATO™ not only offered exceptional handling, perfectly complementing the vehicle's performance, but it also maintained the correct aesthetic appeal. This fact is evident in the two pictures showcasing a DB2/4, where the CINTURATO™ demonstrates the appropriate diameter.

In the 1960s, Jaguar offered the E-type with crossply tires as standard. However, if customers desired a radial tire option, Jaguar provided the 185VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO™ CA67. Additionally, for the Series 1 E-type, Jaguar also offered the Dunlop SP41 tire. However, the latter was not ideally suited to the high-speed capabilities of the XKE. For Jaguar, it wasn't until 1968 that they could take advantage of the pricing offered by a British tire. This occurred with the introduction of Dunlop's SP Sport; also known as the Aquajet.
