In 1952 when PIRELLI developed the CINTURATO ™ tires the mainstay radial tire size was 165R400 because when Michelin developed the radial tire they made it to fit the millimetric rims they were using at the time on cars like the Citroen Traction Avant. (The Michelins 165SR400 X tires are still available with Michelins excellent build quality).

Because of the improved grip of a radial tire, manufacturers such as Ferrari, Lancia and Alfa Romeo also started use millimetric rims to take advantage of the new radial tire technology. Then PIRELLI introduced its new progressive sports car radial tire, the 165HR400 CA67 CINTURATO ™ with it's H Speed rating, that was the tire of choice for cars like the Lancia Aurelia, Alfa Romeo 2600 & Ferrari 250 Tour De France and it wasn't long before most of the major exotic car manufacturers were fitting PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ tires to all their cars. Also you could have millimetric Borrani wheels made to fit your Aston Martin DB2/4 so you could fit 165HR400 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67.
