Pirelli P5 tyre

Postby Michael O'Leary » 13 Dec 2017 19:07

Hi all,
I have three unused 175/80/14 Pirelli P5 tyres, but just can't find a fourth to make a set. Does anyone know where I might find one?
Thanks,
Michael

Don't seem available now. Are the tyres you have of recent manufacture? I use Continentals these days.

Michael,
How old are the three unused tyres you have because the rubber may have already started to harden with age leaving a limited period before they should be replaced on age rather than wear? That might make buying a fourth tyre not such a good idea.

It was a long shot at best.

Although I take on board the comments and would normally agree with them. They've never been used or left standing on a car and feel pliable with no stress cracks. If I could have found a fourth tyre I wouldn't have hesitated fitting them.

I guess the proof would have been in pudding.
