145 R 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 for Small Performance Cars
Renault 5 on 145 R 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO Tires
From the 60s through to the early 80’s, little sports cars dominated and did so much for the British car manufacturing industry with cars such as the Austin Healey Sprite and the Triumph Herald, great little energetic cars that are just a pleasure to drive. Sadly for the longest time there hasn’t been a good tire to be fitted on these cars, until Pirelli created the 145 R 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67. This radial tire is made with these cars in mind, with a rounded carcass to compliment the handling of these light weight rear wheel drive cars. There are many budget tires that are made at this size but they are made to compliment a more modern chassis and the handling wont at all compare to that of a 145 R 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67.
145/80 R 13 74H Tires
The tire size 145/80 R 13 74H indicates:
- The tire width is 145mm at its widest point (not just the tread width).
- The height of the tire sidewall is 80% of 145mm.
- The tire has an R, which means it is a radial tire.
- The tire has a load index of 74, which means each tire can carry a weight up to 375 kgs.
- The tire is speed rated H, which means it can handle speeds of up to 130mph or 210km/h.
145 HR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 - The Tire

- The only true classic car tire in the size 145 HR 13 is the 145 HR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67.
- This 145 HR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 is the only tire in the size 145 HR 13 rated for speeds up to 130mph (H).
- The 145 HR 13 is the best-suited radial alternative for the 520-13 crossply tire size.
For a long time, the wonderful fun compact sports cars of the 1960s to the early 1980s didn't have the right rubber. The remanufacturing of the 145 HR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 has now solved this problem. The 145 HR 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 has the rounded skeleton that is vital for the handling of these small rear-wheel drive historic sports cars, therefore it will outperform any other tire you could fit, whilst offering the best (and most exciting) handling available. There are a range of budget tires available in this size, but they lack a sports cars' speed-rating and feature tire carcasses that are not designed with classic cars in mind.
Classic Car Crossply Vs Radial 145/80 R 13 Tires
Many vehicle manufacturers still used crossply tires up to and including the 1970s. Examples of this include the early Lotus 7 Elan, Austin A30, MG Midget, and the early Triumph Spitfire models. Many cars were released with 520-13 Crossply tires and as tire technology moved on didn't have a performance crossply tire that they could buy, this is especially true for performance cars like the Midget, Spitfire, and Lotus Elan.
These cars would benefit greatly from a period radial carcass, which will handle smoothly and provide an increased steering response without making the steering feel sluggish and numb. Fitting a larger (oversized) tire would lead to heavier steering and compramised handling when compared to a 145/80 R 13 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67.
