Dougal! Is the 285/50VR15 P7 going to happen? I started this thread in March, here it is September! Are you really in talks with the snobs at Pirelli? Or have you been pulling our chains? I feel there's smoke billowing up my lower bung.
I like a bit of straight talking, so i appreciate Georges Silver tongue way of gong about it.
It has taken me some time to get the 285/40ZR15 P7 made. https://www.longstonetyres.co....li-cinturato-p7.html I would have thought you guys were kind of pleased that Pirelli had made that commitment and reproduced such an obscure obsolete size that never did sell large volumes. who else makes a tyre that size for such small batches. I would have thought thanking Pirelli would have been more in line than calling them snobs. they did it. no one else gave a hoot.
I cannot guarantee this will happen. If it does, it will take some time. I suppose the other reference you could consider was i arranged a similar thing for the Countach community. i think if you want to know more of how it worked for those guys this could be an interesting read for you https://www.ferrarichat.com/fo...-anyone-care.508651/
Assume it is going to take a few years. (if it is less it will come as a pleasant surprise)
and please be nice about Pirelli. they have been better to the Pantera community than any other tyre manufacturer!
