    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...

    I think the QV to the left is also quite known...

    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.
