Michelin don't make a 200/60HR365 any more.

However they do make https://www.longstonetires.fr/michel...helin-trx.html

How wide is your rim. they might fit. these are the same diameter and an R5 Turbo fitted either

dougal Hi

I'm not an advocate of over tyreing these sports cars. However if it is going to happen, did you know about Pirelli's remake of the P7 https://www.longstonetires.fr/pirell...turato-p7.html

Those Countach front tyres might be just the ticket

Compomotives split the rims halves religiously.

rowan_jackson The car is advertised on carsales. It is the one with the 3.2 litre 24 valve engine. The last photo is of the current wheels, although I have had those tyres for a few years.

Yes, but neither are ideal for a GTV6, especially if lowered.

So no interest in 16" Ronal A1's? Much better tire selection... i thought i might have a case for the suppliers, but i guess not much interest! I might have to fork out big $$$$ for custom NTM or Image wheels.

Yeah, its very popular with the E36 M3 crowd. For track user and spirited driving, it's perfect! 16 lbs for 16x7.5 . Pretty darn good.

If there is enough interest we should get the suppliers such as ebspares, centerline etc to contact the manufacturer about doing them in 16". Theoretically it should be very easy for the manufacturer to do... i'd definitely be buying a set.

Look at the popularity of 15" GTA reps on 105 cars. The original GTA wheels were 14", but it appears the 15" ones are more popular than the repro 14". I think a 16" Ronal A1 option would be very popular with 116 cars.

Thoughts?
When choosing bigger wheels, its a must to check if there are decent tyres for the car in that size first! If not, better choose some other size.

I had just 2 cases with this problem. A friend was looking for tires in 16" , he has 8" x 16" and the right size would be 225/45 R16. Only a small selection of decent tyres in that size, he wanted Michelin, Bridgestone or Continental, but nothing. So the most decent we found was Hankook Ventus, which at least looks right and had good test. There are also other sizes that fit in 16", like 185/55 R16 , 195/55 R16 or 205/50 R16 but still a suitable tyre has to be found. In the mentioned case, it is a sporty car which needed a sporty combo.

Myself I wanted 17", bigger wheels, but still a lot of searching for the right combination of wheels and tyres. Did not get the exact wheel width and tyre size: wanted 8" X17" ET25, CB 58,1 5x98. But ended up with 7,5X17 ET25, CB 73,1(need spigot ring) 5x98 and tyre 215/40 R17 Bridgestone S001. So, decent tyre, but for the rear i considered 235/40 R17 however Bridgestone does not have that in S001. Have not come over other interesting manufacturers who have that either.

So my conclusion, its a lot of work if you want something special on Your car, and if you choose a wheel size make sure that your favourite tyre fits on that!
