Small Performance Cars


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 145R13 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 145R13 Pirelli Cinturato ™ CA67.

  • The only true classic car tire in the size 145HR13 is the 145 HR 13 Pirelli Cinturato™ CA67.
  • This 145 HR 13 Pirelli Cinturato™ CA67 is the only tire in the size 145HR13 rated for speeds up to 130mph (H).
  • The 145HR13 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 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 HR 13 Pirelli Cinturato™ CA67.
