What I say here carries little influence throughout the Pantera community. I accept my comments as fair game to criticism. That's ok with me.
Here's my qualification. I have NO vested interest in promoting one tire over another.
Your coments and opinions have influence on me. Your the fitment guides and quantities of cars i have saved and will be using them in discussions with Pirelli when considering what tyres to make in the future.

What works and what doesn't work is what tire satisfies the "criteria" best. The criteria is the choice of the purchaser.
Well i think we have the early cars sorted out with the XWX. https://www.longstonetyres.co....es/michelin-xwx.html I would think that was one of the best tyres in period and is perfect now. I don't think there are any compromises there for early '70s cars.
The good news for the near future is we will have 285/40R15 P7 & 345/35R15 P7 https://www.longstonetyres.co....li-cinturato/p7.html so for the later cars again we will. so hopefully that will be another batch of cars where we have the best possible set up with no compromise.
We have a 225/50R15 P7 so we are half way to sorting out the 79 -84 cars. all we need is a 285/50R15 P7
So i think thats pretty good going.
