If you have a vintage ride, you often have few options with respect to the tires. There are companies out there, certainly, but finding original examples of the tires once fitted to your car may prove a fruitless endeavor. Pirelli has an answer for a number of vintage car owners, however, as it’s brought back one of its classic tires; the Stella Bianca.
Originally introduced in 1927, the Stella Bianca was Pirelli’s first modern tire. It remained in service to the brand all the way through the early 1950’s. Now Pirelli has brought it back but with modern compounds employed for proper driving dynamics in all weather conditions.
The tread pattern is identical to the original. It was researched through Pirelli archives and recreated along with the sidewall markings. In its heyday, the Stella Bianca was fitted to Alfa Romeos, Fiats, Lancias, Ferraris, and more. Now it’s back and it would surely look great on any vehicle from the era in which it was originally devised.
