SC rear tyres

I need some new back tyres. I currently have Firestone 215 60 15, Firestone do not make this size any more. Pirelli do make this size but at a price. Has anybody got any thoughts about a wider tyre such as 225 60 15. I want a "good" tyre not some budget special. Any comments gratefully accepted.

    To maintain the same gearing and hence speedometer accuracy, I'd go for 225/55 or 225/50 15's (check for the closest rolling radius). That probably increases your choice as well.

    I have talked to a number of people including Canford Classics and the consensus was to stick with the original size tyres. So new Pirellis it is then at £200 each plus also 2 for the front, better have a matching set. You can't run a Porsche on Fiesta money !

    Having listened to the people who know, the answer is simple buy new Pirelli tyres. Then go to the pub to recover, you can't run a Porsche on Fiesta money.
    Thank you for the advice every one.

    I would think you should find this interesting https://docs.google.com/viewerng/viewer?url=https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/media/wysiwyg/longstone/english-website/porsche/porsche-classic-article.pdf
     
    Pireli do also make 205/50R15 P7 tyres and 225/50R15 P7. but what might be really exciting to some people with really wide wheels is they are also making a 285/40R15  P7 now too.
     
    To be up front i am contacting you from Longstone Tyres.
     
    there is more interesting news from Pirelli. They will also be making some 16"  P7 tyres for you guys soon too also with the N4 hjomologation.
