    Do you care what part of the world you send it to? Where are you located?

    probably should do an update. There are more sources now, and some have gone away or become unreliable.

    Couldn't agree more...have bought different sets (Mich XWX, ZX and Pirelli Cinturato) for (3) different cars and price was the best, hands down...and I'm about as far away from them as you can get.

    Thank You Mr HMB-Dino Looking at your car collection it seems you have bought exactly the right tyres.

    6.40R13 ZX for the 190SL

    XWX for the Dino

    185VR16 Pirelli Cinturato for the 507 (i love a BMW 507)

    The DB4 (I love a DB4 more than a DB5) would have fitted either 600H16 Avon TurboSpeed as a standard crossply. or they could have fitted the 185VR16 Pirelli Cinturato if you asked for radial, because it was the best and Avon weren't making a radial tyre at the time. They do now make a 185VR16 Avon, but it is a wholey modern tyre and completely the wrong shape and size (the later DB4 did fit 15" wheels though)

    as an anorak i took this line up photograph, which is an interesting example of how different tyres can be even though they have the same tyre dimension written on them. They are clearly actually a completely different shape

    BMW fitted Michelin Pilote X 6.00R16 to the 507 during its complete restoration. I acquired the Cinturato's for the DB4 (Series II) because I wanted a period correct radial rather than a crossply.

    The 600WR16 Pilote X are great tyres https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/tyres/600-16/600wr16-michelin-pilot-x.html very high performance, semi track tyre. designed to look reminicent of the Englebert racing tyre of the '40s and '50s.

    I do think a BMW 507 left the factory fitted with 185VR16 Cinturato.

    It is a win win situation. they are both great.

    What is also interesting is that Pirelli have now made a high performance crossply tyre. https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/tyres/600-16/600-16-pirelli-stella-bianca.html which might be interesting if you are considering crossply on the DB4 when you have worn out the Cinturato.

    My info cannot confirm that the Cinturato ever left the factory on a 507. I do know that BMW Classic fits all their restored 507's with 600WR16 Michelin Pilote X. I'm sure many owners have fitted the Cinturato to their 507 as they are significantly cheaper than the Pilote X (as you obviously would know).

    Hi

    I am pretty sure the 5007 fitted 185VR16 Cinturato https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/tyres/185-16.html . However if i am frank i am basing that on what i have been told.

    I'm guessing that BMW Classic don't know you can get the Cinturato again.

    Don't get me wrong, the Michelin Pilote X https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/tyres/185-16/600wr16-michelin-pilot-x.html is an ace tyre, but it isn't genuine period. However it does have a W speed rating. Of the tyres we sell in this size, the Cinturato and Pilote X are the tyres we get excellent reports on. I had a chap in just today, taking a set of Vredesteins off his XK120 because he had driven a similar car on the Pilote X and wanted his car to drive like that.

    It is a good situation to be in. There is a choice of 2 absolutely top notch tyres in what is effectually an obsolete tyres size.

    Sorry if this is old news
    Mr Fiat [ $1895 ] and Dino parts [ 1153 euro ] sell 246 rear screens now in glass, they claim to oem spec.

    Please can you tell me how much, would a Ferrari oem new old stock unused one be worth?
    A friend has one, he has someone who wants it just wants to know a fair price, if you can help that would be great.
