The Mickey Thompson 26x12-15 fits well on the 10" wheel also. It's right in that 285-295 range.
The 305 BFG's Euro rally tire is right on the verge of hanging out. The 285 is acceptable but the 295-50-15 is about as "perfect" as you can get unless you go to the 17" aftermarket Campi look alikes.
I would go for 295-50-15 P7's if they became available.
I personally like the fit of the 225-50-15 P7's on the front on 8" Campi's but it does lower the front just a hair.
I'm not that concerned with the speed rating of the tires. V or better is nice but S was fine even on the Autobahn long before the V became available.
It is true in the United States but in Europe, and especially in Germany which is only a few tens of kilometers from my home, there are freeways where the speed is free and with 400, 450, ... 500 CV a Pantera must be able to approach 200 mph and compete with Porsche, Ferrari and other AMG.
