Found a screw in my right rear P Zero 335/30VR18 tire. I have been told that it is best NOT to patch it. Anyone know the best place to buy a replacement tire? thanks.

VR or ZR? Anyway, the original P-Zero line has been discountinued. As far as I know, Tire Rack does not have any leftovers. I'll let you know on Monday if my friend who works for tires.com can still get them. Otherwise you'll probably have to go with P-Zero Rosso.

Tire Rack was out of them before May. I'd buy at least one whole set (or more) of the original ASIMMETRICO 335/30ZR18 & 235/35ZR18 in a heart beat if you can find em....

For the short term you can patch these tires, however they are no longer unquestionably safe over 100mphs and certianly not safe over 160.

I though there was a very recent thread that Stated Ernie's Alloy's in Fla had some tires in stock?

Raymond: The tire is definetly a Pirelli 335/30 ZR18 Ser 102Y. Can I substitute with a P Zero "Rosso" Asimmetrico?? Would all 4 tires have to be changed to the "Rosso"? What is the difference in the "Rosso"? There are only about 400 miles on all 4 tires.

You should have all 4 tires same Pirelli model.The problem is if you change your rear tire with Rosso then you should have Rosso in the front.But Pirelli doesn't make Rosso in the front size.Because you have viscous coupling you should stay with the exact sizes front and rear.The rear Pzero ,as you know, have been discontinued so it's going to be very hard to find them and whoever has them are asking premium.If you like I'll make some phone calls and see if anyone has them.

Hi Sean: I have the 2 wheel drive model (SV) I have been told that I could put two "Rosso's" on the rear and keep the orignal on the front (about 400miles since new). Would that be okay? also, I have the original tires that have about 1500 miles on them but will be 6 years old next March. I could put the original back on the right rear but that goes against the manual that says change every 4 years, low mileage or not. what do you think?

Hi Tom,

No you should have all 4 Rosso or 4 Pzero assim. because they have different charactristics,your car won't handle correctly.The Rosso has a better wet traction but less dry traction.

Do not use old tires that is 6 years old (unless they were sealed)because the rubber gets deterioted over time and starts getting cracked and it can blow up at hi speed on long period driving.People who collect cars,change the tires every 3-4 years even if it has 10 miles on it.

I checked for you and there is a 235/40/18 Rosso.Since you don't have VT,it'll be ok.So get 2 235/40/18 Rosso and 2 335/30/18 Rosso.

If you have any more questions ,give me a call at 1-888-456-0437.
