    Not just 1980s but also 1977-1979 Porsche 930s. :)

    Are they making 15” P7s for early turbos any time soon? If not what would be the best alternative?

    Flippin heck! What car is that for? I think you might have to buy a different car.

    what size rim do you have?

    How about fitting a 245/45R16 https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/pirelli-collezione/cinturato-p7/245-45yr16-pirelli-cinturato-p7-n4.html It will give you the same diameter and fit on between 7.5" and 9" rim unofficially you could stretch it onto a 10" rim if you needed to.

    Have you seen this range of tyres https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/pirelli-collezione/p7-corsa-classic.html#page=4 they are tarmac rally tyres, but they do some unusual 16" sizes.

    Sorry missed it. What size are you after?

    this page lists all the sizes currently made https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/pirelli-collezione/cinturato-p7.html

    I think you mean the early 930 cars with https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/pirelli-collezione/cinturato-p7/205-50yr15-pirelli-cinturato-p7-n4.html on the front & https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/225-50yr15-pirelli-cinturato-p7.html on the rear.

    we have the rear in stock. And i have just heard from Pirelli that the next batch of the 205/50 R15 P7 will be wiyh me at the end of the week.

    they made these a while ago. Then i got Pirelli to make a 285/40R15 P7 for some RSR and the 345/35R15 P7 for the Countach the sales of the 930 tyres increased and we accidentally ran out of the 205/50R15 P7. not to worry though it will be back soon

    hows this

    A 275/40/16 would fill out the 930 fenders nicely. Also a bit more grip. They should also work with the stock 9’s, though a 9.5 or 10” would be better. To me, the 275/40/17’s are too tall at 25.7 vs 24.6 for the 275/40/16’s. 24.6”is the same height as the 245/45/16’s.
    Hankook use too offer a h405 in that size.
    I have a set of 8” & 9” Ronal R9’s looking for tires. Would use these as an all season alternative to the TB15’s.

    I ran across those tires doing my “wishful thinking” search. Hankook was the only one making them as far as I can tell. An all season high performance tire, which got good revues.

    It’s ashame tire manufactures have blown off the fat 16” street tires. I’m sure there are alot of nice wide 9” + wheels collecting dust.
