Specifically, the 345/35R15 Pirelli P Zero

Apparently it's a countach size?

Unfortunately it's not legal for OneLap (200TW+)... but it might be fun to bring to GRM $2k Challenge for 'most expensive set of free tires' (or am I missing some obscure Hoosier size?)

What would you do them?

Was just discussing these tires the other day with a bro.  Looking at tires for the Viper and wondering what other stupid expensive tires are available.

 

That being said these are still a bargain compared to 54" Super Swampers.  19.5/54-20LT.  Now thats a big tire!

In reply to 93gsxturbo :

The idea of a 54" Super Swamper got my attention. One of my day dreams is to build a stupid-lifted truck again and if you're going to do stupid, go all the way. I found a vender that sells them for a smidgen less than the Pirelli. Still over $3800 for a set of 4 after $215 in sales tax and $50 shipping.

There is a 295 15 Hoosier a7 that is the right height for a miata and fits on a 12" wheel.  Except for the coolness factor, it is probably a better choice.

At least you only need 2 of them on a Countach...

Pretty sure you can run those on a Pantera, too.

Wide-body Porsche 911?

It would be the other way around.

There's some pics of 'similar nominal dimension' yokohamas on 930's from back in the day

considering these beasts are 34#s a tire, even in 15" size.... yes, you'd be better off with Hoosiers.

But, that's never really stopped this variety of daydreaming on here, has it?

I already cry thinking about running some sizes of new A7s at the challenge. One year I purchased a potential challenge car that came with a set of 18x12 wheels the 345 A7s are almost $500 each.

Hillclimb rubber sizes get ridiculous with regards to cost.

Box flares or just let them hang out in the breeze?

$50 shipping sounds like a bargain for those.   And I'm a big fan of "if you're going to do stupid, go all the way." laugh
