    Guys,

    Is anyone else out there struggling to find 255/50/16 tyres for there Testarossa?

    I have been looking for a few months now and had no success. I can get 225/50/16 for the fronts in numerous makes but the rears seem to be a problem. I can get Bridgestone and Michelin through work (with a decent discount ;-) ), but they seem to not list them anymore.

    Any ideas at all?

    Thanks

    Pete

    Tirerack.com has a bunch of 255/50-16s listed in stock.

    That's also where I bought mine after changing off the metric rims.

    I have been using the Dunlop's for years both on and off the track. They are great and not expensive. They are also available becasue it is the same size as some of the vette's.

    I have had 2 sets of Dunlop SP8000's and I love them.
