    Pirelli Cinturato CN36 Tires

    Anyone used these? I am thinking of them for my '75 1900. They look like a throwback to the types of performance tires I ran on the street 'back in the day'. (Pirelli's, Michelin XAS and XVS). Not cheap but tempting.

    Used 'em on my GT back in the day. I loved 'em and they look good.

    Did you look at Tire Rack? They have these https://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireS...60&diameter=13. I just got a set of the B.F. Goodrich. Jarrell

    Lucas classic tires sells the CN36 in the 185-70-13 size you need. The description even mentions it was made for several German car models including Opel Manta

    I will be purchasing the tire when my bf Goodrich redlines decompose. They are already 6 years old and fading fast. The CN36 will make the GT handle massively better. I’ve heard nothing but good thing about them.

    Those are some quick replies! Tnx.

    And yes I have considered the the BFG Radial T/A's, Jarrell. You have to remember, I am an old gravel rally guy, and like to run fast and hard through the mountain roads here, some of which can be a bit rough. So I am not as much into lowered cars and stiff suspensions and such as others may be.... In fact, this new Opel 1900 has some lower, stiffer 5" springs up front that I will be pulling out and replacing with some of my old softer, taller front rally springs. Gotta have some ground clearance!

    BTW, knorm65, the best deal I have found so far on these is from Longstone Classic Tyres in the UK. Unless you are near Long Beach CA and can pick up directly from Lucas, Longstone is cheaper on a set of 4, tax paid, and shipped. And a set of 5 is even a better buy; the 5th tire is $120, taxed and shipped. They advertise 6-7 days shipping time to the USA, and that is as long as it takes for ground shipping to VA from CA.

    @Manta Rallier,

    I currently running on Pirelli Cinturato CN36 (185/70/r13). There are no doubt cheaper alternatives, but I'm never the less very very very satisfied with my CN36 tires. The tire shoulders are more rounded than a modern tire, and in my experience they suits the GT well. Further the thread just makes them look fab. and period correct.
