Well I stumbled into something unexpected. The "new" P-Zero Pirelli 345s are not the same size as the "old" Pirelli P-7s!! They are MUCH larger. This changes things a little as I was expecting an easy fit. The Yokohama 345's are 3/4" wider than the P-7 Pirelli's and require a lot of work to fit. These new P-Zero's are the same width as the Yoko's and about 1/2" taller. Wow. I've never seen a Pirelli of any size that ran large.
Anyway don't know if this is useful to anyone but here are a few pictures.
