For the most part a tyre such as a 185/70SR13, 185/70TR13 or 185/70HR13 would be an ample speed rating for the cars that left the factory with tyres of this size, so the PIRELLI 185/70VR13 CINTURATO ™ CN36 has a specification up and above what is necessary. PIRELLI’s CN36 CINTURATO ™ tyres have always been a bench mark tyre, so the decision to make the 185/70VR13 tyre in that tread pattern tied in with the need to have such a high performance tyre in this size. Today lots of the cars that this 185/70VR13 tyre is developed to fit offer better performance than they had in the day.
Many of the cars that fit 185/70SR13, 185/70TR13 or 185/70HR13 tyres would have originally fitted a smaller full profile tyre such as a 165HR13, and the PIRELLI 185/70VR13 CINTURATO ™ CN36 is an very high specification alternative that will complement the handling of these earlier cars. For example cars like Ford Cortina, Capri and the series 1 Ford Escort RS some of which even originally fitted crossply tyres 600-13 really benefit from fitting this period 185/70VR13 CN36 CINTURATO ™
