for driving 195/65x15 with a vr rating, call the tire rack Denny at ext 321 for the latest brand recommendation. For showing and occasional driving 165x15 Michelin. Coker tire sells them

Coker also has the vintage pirellis in 185/70 I believe as well as Vredestein (sp) in 165's. Cool there are some new options for us now!

I really do not like those Vredestein tires, seems like the side wall flexes too much and makes the car ride a bit like it is on jello. PLUS for us concours guys the tread pattern and big letters on the side does not give the car the true vintage look. Tires are inexpensive though as compared to Michelins
