Hi all. Wondering if anyone has currently available suggestions for a GT5-S wearing its original wheels? I don't intend to change these, but am wanting the most original tire option I can find.

Most of the posts and information I can find seem a few years old and apply to models prior to the 5-S, hence my updated and specific request for info here.

All very much appreciated,

Michael

Yes I did, after many years of searching. I will be happy to share photos when it arrives from Italy.

In the meantime, trying to get a head start on the tire issue, hence my post.

Appreciate any help the members here can lend.
Congratulations, it's been a long haul to find your car, but I'm sure it will be worth it in the end.

It's fairly easy albeit expensive to obtain rear tires in the Pirelli 345/35-15, however fronts (used to be everyone was using Yokahama with a similar tread pattern to the Pirelli) in 285/40-17 are virtually unobtanium. You may find someone who has an old set stashed away but that's a roll of the dice.

The only matching set options I know of currently are the Michelin TB5 (partial tread dry, harder compound) or TB15 (full tread wet, softer compound).

Some have resorted to using race slicks with hand cut treads.

Glad you found one on your taste.
What are the last 4 digids from the VIN?

About the front tires ,do you want concourse or a car that is good steering ?

When you want good steering you must go to : Michelin 255/45VR15 MXW tires.

Buy them in Eurrope and trow them inside the car to save shipping cost.

Good Luck,
Simon

A good looking and driveble tire
