Pirelli Appeases The Super Elite With New Ferrari 250 GTO Tires

There are only 39 Ferrari 250 GTOs in existence, but that hasn’t stopped Pirelli from developing a new tire for the world’s most expensive car.

Dubbed the Stelvio Corsa, the tire looks remarkably similar to the original tire which the 250 GTO was sold with. However, the new rubber uses modern technology for improved grip and better wear and is offered exclusively for the 250 GTO.

Auto Classics reports that Pirelli engineers used the same parameters that were used back in the 1960’s to complement the suspension and mechanical characteristics of the car. What’s more, archive images were also used and each set of Stelvio Corsa tires uses bespoke production techniques.

The tire is offered exclusively in 215/70 R15 98W for the front wheels and 225/70 R15 100W at the rear, and is the latest addition to the Pirelli Collezione tire range which includes rubber for historic models from Maserati, Porsche, and others.

Considering that well-kept 250 GTOs can sell for over $50 million, it’s probably worth ensuring each and every one has a brand-new set of tires.

    Cool! And what is the asking price for the set?

    • Just for comparison a Cinturato or Michelin XWX can cost up to 1500 GBP for five set. But to be frank both Cinturato and XWX are road legal high performance tires. And both brand has “mass” produce it.

      This one should be more expensive because of the model reissue.

        Wow! although what is that price for a classic Ferrari that can fetch a $50mil!

        • Lol yeah, and it used to be more expensive. Before Pirelli and Michelin mass produce it.

  • Technologies makes it easier for tire manufacturer to reissue these tires. Since back in the days some people actually commissioned very expensive small batch.

    Like LM002 Scorpion tires, they used to be like 5000 GBP now thanks to reissue had gone down to 2000 GBP.
