Hi

Just a heads up for those who are interested.

https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/classi ... /elan.html

Pirelli have just made a fresh batch of the 145HR13 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 which is perfect.

and as an alternative, Michelin now make an XAS as well.

Hi,
Do you have any information or maybe possible date of if or when 165HR 13 Pirelli CA67's for +2's could be available?

I'm afraid i now think it is going to be next year. There have been difficulties with factory shut downs that have put everything back.

Did I read somewhere you were hoping to source CN36 in 155 13?

The plan is to produce

155R13 CA67 https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/pirell ... -ca67.html

&

165R13 CN36 https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/pirell ... -cn36.html

Which, although that plan is for the Fiat 124, it does actually fit nicely for the Elan
