Heavy ?? Yes, but ...it makes up in other ways.

Just got back from Luft 5. Put about 5,200 miles on them and my rear Toyo R888Rs are about ready to be replaced.

P7s are being manufactured, but are frequently out of stock.

We just installed some Toyo T1R tires a client ordered for his 930, 225/55 and 245/50-16. They were good.

While the original design 15" P7's have been available thru Longstone, I've not seen the original design 16's.
For the 16ís, a revised design Pirelli Cinturato P7 is available in 205/55R16 (front) and 225/50R16 (rear) sizes. While the branding, V speed rating, and sizes are correct for the 1977 930 and early 3.3 930's, they are not the original OEM design. Tire Rack has them; https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Pirelli&tireModel=Cinturato+P7+%28H-+or+V-Speed+Rated%29&frontTire=055VR6CP7V2&rearTire=25VR6CP7&vehicleSearch=true&fromCompare1=yes&autoMake=Porsche&autoYear=1979&autoModel=930&autoModClar=#RatingsReviews

Hi Jeff,
Do the 225/50"s rub or hit anywhere?
Thanks, Mark

Hi Mark sorry for the late reply. Pelican no longer lets me know there is a reply to post.
They do not rub or hit. They have a very smooth ride and grip very well. Hope this helps. Jeff
