Love the bit about keeping your tyres in your wine cellar!

Of course all the German houses I've lived in had cellars - the word was they had to be built with them, so everyone had a bomb shelter...! Probably another myth, but at least there was plenty of room for storing wheels, tyres or even wine - and they were dry.

Anyway, I'm posting here as I'm shortly to take delivery of a lovely, low mileage, 1995 993 cab. Only done 20 minutes in it so far but can't wait to get to know it.

Somewhat confused about the correct replacements for Pirelli P Zero Assimetrico 225/40 ZR 18 N3 & 285/30 ZR 18 N3.
I want to keep to this brand and are somewhat confused by The 'Rosso' addition. Presumably they are different?

Yep, they are different, far less special IMHO, more for BMWs etc. I am loving Conti Sport Contact 2s at present. Having used Assimetricos for some time, I'd say the Contis are much more progressive and forgiving, and better in the wet, too !!

YMMV, cheers, Maurice

Went with the Rosso tyres as I hadn't heard back in time. What I did notice with the 'Rosso's was the kerb protector. A little more prominent. Perhaps this may be a good thing?

What I forget to ask...Are the Rosso N4 tyres the replacement from the Assimetrico? The supplying garage said that the Rosso N4 tyres were their replacement?

Believe so. Assimetrico are N3 rated.

The N numbers in this case do not imply that the Rossos replace the Assimetricos.

The Rossos in the approved fitment sizes are now in their 5th iteration, and are indeed included in the tyre approval list on this very forum. They are not regarded as highly even by Pirelli, and when Porsche tests included a score were rather low IIRC. High Performance rather than Extreme Performance, BMW rather than Ferrari (insert your preferred supercar here ..)

Loads of info on tyres, N Spec in Tech Articles etc ..

cheers, Maurice

I tried the Conti's once, but found the P Zero's give me greater traction and confidence on the road regardless of activity or driving style. 175mph, stuck to the road like bubble gum to a shoe.
