pirelli cinturato

Youngtimer tires.com

this company is owned by Longstone but designed for international sales.
I have purchased pirelli cinturato tyres for approximately £30 each less than anywhere else including Longstone and vintage.
When my tyres arrived they even had Longstone tape holding them together for delivery.
Highly recommended

I would be interested to know their date of manufacture.

In North America tires have a DOT code on the sidewall. The last 4 digits indicate the week and year of manufacture. So 2612 would indicate June, 2012.

Do tires in Europe follow the same format?

yes, tyres in the Uk follow the same method of date stamping (at least for radials) - I am not sure that my SP25 crossplies have any such marking - but I would have to check to be certain.

I'm not sure how much tyre age is important versus how they have been stored. However, the Vredesteins which I have purchased from Vintage Tyre Supplies have only been 1 or 2 months old which seems to be an advantage if tyres really have a limited life before they deteriorate to a dangerous state.

I also doubt the pirelli cinturato are of the same quality rubber as earlier ones but I was running the tf on over 30 year old pirelli cinturato tyres so I think it possible that a higher priced tyre could possibly be a better quality compound of rubber too.
Besides, the pirelli look cool!!

Are these the Pirelli P5 Cinturato, 205/70/VR15s that I have on my Daimler Convertible? One was damaged in 2009 and we were unable to get any, so the car has two Dunlop ER/70/VR15s on the front (I used these on my everyday TD21 years ago). I would love to get some more Pirellis to balance the car up. The ER/70/VR15s were fitted on the standard Jaguar XJs and the Pirelli P5s were fitted on the top of the range 5.3 litre V12 cars. Modern tyres just don't look "right"

they also do the 205 and are VR rated. Now HR rated are available at a good deal less. Both have same period tread pattern.
