Does anyone know how smaller tire size I can put on the rims of the tires that I have now. I just need back up street tires and any brand will do Thanx

Are you saying you have 345/15? That is one large tire! Most of the turbos I think stick to about 315's. What we'd need to answer your question accurately is what size RIM to you have these on?

Last I heard Pirelli and (maybe) Yokohama were the only possibilities. Subject to availabilty on TireRack.com. Alot of Panteras, Countachs and 930s use this configuration.

yes i do have these tires on my car, but I do not know what size rim it is, I will have to meaure it. The tires that I have on now are 345-35-15, and are made by Perelli, I was wondering since that size is getting harder to find and very expensive for the size, would there be an alternative with the same rim?. Thanx

There really are not any good alternatives.
I sold my last set of unused 345s a few months ago.
Your rim size is most likely 11". Pirelli sells new 345/35-15s for around $400 each.

Agree with Brian's statement. My 345's are on 11" Gotti wheels.
