    Hi Longstone, Does the available production version of the new Stella Bianca tire have the calmer sidewall graphics as shown at the Padova show? Specifically, the Maserati 250F (?) photo you posted shows the tire with an oval accent line around the word "CORSA". The tire as shown at Padova eliminates the oval and the "CORSA" font is smaller. Thanks.

    There were a few pre production tyres that were a bit different. but after a testing session this was the best design

    For me i need a 3500Gt Maserati, then i can wonder about getting some tyres for it.

    However it is a funny thing, some time ago i got involved with the Maser club, because they were upset because the 185VR16 Pirelli Cinturato was not available, and there wasn't anything as good enough as an alternative. So they did a load of testing and found the Michelin 600-16 Pilote Sport to be fantastic, which it still is.

    things have changed since then https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/classic-car-tyres/maserati/3500gt.html#page=2 there are now 3 perfect tyres

    We still have the 600WR16 Michelin Pilot X. https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/classic-car-tyres/maserati/3500gt/600r16-michelin-pilot-x.html

    Pirelli have made new batches of 185VR16 Pirelli Cinturato https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/classic-car-tyres/maserati/3500gt/185vr16-pirelli-cinturato-ca67.html which is of course the radial tyre of choice.

    And now there is the period crossply Pirelli Stella Bianca https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/classic-car-tyres/maserati/3500gt/600-16-pirelli-stella-bianca.html
