Tires and Rims

Hi Everyone,
I have an 85 930 with 15" rims (pics posted Sept last year). I'm having difficulty locating tires. so far one supplier in England but no stock at present time with no delivery date. I think my best option might be to change the rims. Only one problem, I have single center lug tires and I cna't find a lot out there to look at. Any suggestions?

They look like regular 15" BBS RS to me so your "centre lug" is just a hub cap covering the standard 5 bolts. You should have a BBS plastic hex shaped wrench to remove them. There's lots of wheel options out there in 17 and 18 inch - just a matter of budget and taste.

We have an option for you, a real bolt on center lock setup in the porsche 935 style.

If you want to keep the 15's: Pirelli P7 Corsa Classic- anyone running yet?
