15” wide low profile high speed rating tyres are getting near impossible to find in Europe. For my 1977 tarmac rally spec 3.3 RS, I was running Yokohama AO22 all weather tyres but these are no longer available. I managed to find a spare new set of the 225/50 x 15” for the front but cannot get any of the 245/45 x 15 for the back. I am using 8” front and 9” rear Minilite magnesium wheels. I am currently having to run the very expensive and shallow tread Michelin TB15 23/62 x 15 tyres (approx 270/45). These are over 388 ($650) each! Anyone got any other ideas? Scrutineers on historic rallies can be difficult over fitting 16” wheels to a ’77 non-turbo car. Wilson
