Pirelli P7 Cinturato 195/50 VR15 Tyre

Post by ukfpv » Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:15 am

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

Dr B (Chris) from South Wales http://www.brooklands280.com/home.html Has this ad on Facebook;

"For Sale

Pirelli P7s taken off one of my Capri 280s
Size 195/50x15

I have 6 of them.

They are 1990s vintage therefore sold as static display or off road only.

They would be excellent for show purposes if you want your Capri 280 to look original.

My last set of 5 sold for £450, but they were like new.
These are part worns and I will take £45 each for the 4. Postage extra.

I'll throw the other two tyres in for 15 quid .each.

Anyone interested just give a shout.

Thanks"

Thanks Andy

I have 3 'new' ones so I'm really looking to find another of the same (an unused spare) rather than a part worn so as to make a perfect set of 4, that way I'll be sure to not have any flat spot issues etc. Thanks for the heads ups though

Hopefully somebody has an unused spare they'll be willing to let go at some point?

Cheers
