Porsche 911 Tires

This shows Porsche fitment in 1969. the new low profile tyres are so new it seems they have given the wrong description to the 911S tires, they should be 185/70VR15

Early Porsche 911 tires

When the first Porsche 911 cars evolved from the 356 they maintained the same tire size 165HR15. One of the original equipment 165HR15 tires that was offered by Porsche with the 911 was a Pirelli 165HR15. Today Pirelli produce the 165HR15 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 which is a perfect tire for an early 911, or for that matter a 912 or 356.

Classic Porsche 911 tires

At the end of the 60's low profile tires were developed, and of course Porsche, being the company they were, embraced this modern technology with the 911. The low profile alternative to the 911's original 165HR15 was a 185/70VR15. Again Pirelli were chosen as one of the original tires on these classic Porsche 911's, fitting the 185/70VR15 Cinturato CN36 HS that are still produced today by Pirelli, very much with the classic 911 in mind.
