Dougal- Very nice. Before it was only the 205 15 in a 78 aspect ratio. If they do 215/70 15s, will give Daytona and Boxer owners an alternative to the XWX.

Hi

from about 1964 most Ferrari with 15" wheels fitted a 205VR15 CN72 Cinturato https://www.cinturato.net/tyre-fitment-guide/ this is a full profile (78% - 82%) tyre which is being made by Pirelli again. Before that it was 185VR15 CA67 Cinturato https://www.cinturato.net/185-15/ which was recently re made by Pirelli and fits 250GTE, Lusso and the S2 GT, and the earlier cars were on 16" wheels with 185VR16 CA67 which i am expecting a delivery of any day now.

Then right at the end of the 60's some cars were starting to use the new low profile (70%) tires. I think the Daytona might have been the first one. to fit 215/70VR15 which currently is only made as a Michelin XWX https://www.borrani.com/en/215-70vr15-michelin-xwx.html or as a road race tyre the Avon CR6ZZ 215/70VR15 Avon CR6ZZ | Longstone Tyres

I am hoping to get a 215/70VR15 Cinturato CN12 in the near future.

the tyre fitment for these vintage Ferrari should be correct on this Borrani web site. https://www.borrani.com/en/

330/365GTC's had 14" wheels fitted with 205/70VR14 tires, typically Pirelli Cinturatos or Michelin XWX's. My 330/365GTC was fitted with 15" custom forged Campagnolo wheels to which I fitted over-size 215/70VR15 very kindly furnished by Pirelli-Armstrong as the car was originally owned by Leopoldo Pirelli. This underpinning somehow gave the car a really bolder stance. The larger wheels/tires did affect acceleration a bit, offset by the greater torque of the 4.4 liter engine, bettered fuel mileage and caused a tiny bit of scrub on full lock. Also slightly increased ride height.

Hi

I'm pretty sure that the 330 GTC and 365 GTC fitted 205VR14, Not the 205/70VR14 that they later fitted to the Dino.

Borrani 330 GTC Wheels and Tyres

The only tyre currently available in 205VR14 is Michelin XWX which is brilliant This tyre has a overall diameter of 686mm. Changing to 15" wheels and fitting a 215/70VR15 will give you an 9overall diameter that is very close to that.

We do currently have a 205/70VR15 Pirelli Cinturato CN12 but i do hope to have the CN12 in the size 215/70VR15 in the near future.

Can i guess that presently your Pirelli's are P4000 tyres?
