And the other one, it's my mechanic who ordered it directly to the Pirelli plant in Turkey where these tires are produced.

Pirelli told me they should make a new batch around Christmas, for both 335/30/18 and 235/35/18. Then they will be more easily available in 2013 I guess.
Is this the standard PZero's or the Pzero Rosso's? The Rosso 235/35/18 has been removed from the Pirelli website.

No, it's the Assimetrico.

The Rosso doesn't exist in 235, only in 245 for the front.
So on my SV I don't have a choice, I need Assimetrico tires.

And of course my memory is half shot. The 245 front was used on the first 2WD Diablos but became 235 on the first VTs. It is the Diablo 6.0 that lists both 235/35/18 and 245/35/18 as acceptable tire sizes for the fronts.

Just about all Diablo and Countach rears I've seen were made somewhere in Italy. Specifically, all my Diablo rears were made in Bollate Milan. The Diablo fronts were made in Odenwald Germany.
