    Know that car, it's in the netherlands, it has a Special Suspension, but do not have a contact.
    Our dutch friends might help.

    Here the Pictures from Viva Italia Event where we were as well, many, many years ago...

    It works, sorta. It will rub over bumps.

    Ciao Emilio, my Silhouette had 345's when I bought it many years ago. They were fitted to the Silhouette bravos. They looked terrible !

    Yes Emilio I had them on my Jalpa. The tires rubbed with any bump. I do not recommend doing it. I went to the original 285/40/15's as soon as I found a set.

    The black Jalpa with the 345 Pirelli P Zero Countach rear wheels is VIN #GLA12326. Austrian livery (consegna: Bruno de Cillia).

    The 285/40/15 was for the Bravo wheels, which was not on most Jalpas, factory wise on a handful of 1988's. The standard tire was a 16", IIRC.

    Do you know what sizes, Brand and tread pattern the 16" tyre were?

    I would like to collect as much info as possible then hopefully i will be able to create an accurate web page about what tyres these cars fitted and what tread patterns they used and also hopefully what tyre pressures the different tyres ran at.
