Pirelli P7 Cinturato 195/50 VR15 Tyre

To make a set of five I'm after two 'new' Pirelli P7 195/50 VR15 tyres which have preferably been kept as spare tyres - anyone able/willing to help/part with theirs? Thanks

I actually have three Pirelli P7 tyres which were recently removed from my 280 which I'm currently reburbishing.I'm not sure exactly when manufacturing stopped on these tyres but I'm guessing it's been a few years,I certainly couldn't find any new ones when I last looked and that was at least 15 years ago.I know tyres do degrade over time,indeed mine do have some slight cracks around the tyre wall but I'm hesitant in just throwing them away-They've done very few miles since they were originally put on my car and the tread on them is like new.

I believe production of this tyre ceased in the late 80's

Due to the issues you describe plus potential flat spot problems from being parked up I am ideally looking for a spare tyre (2 of) which has not been used on the road. I wonder what happened to your original spare tyre?

I recently missed out on 2 NOS tyres, but hopefully some more will turn up
