I'll start off by saying that this is a super specialized tire, in fact right now it only made for 17" wheels. But let me also say that this is one amazing tire. It has to be one of the most aggressive tires in this performance category. Back in the day, this tire was developed for the Porsche 959 super car that was built for a few years in the 1980s. Originally designed to be a rally car, the 959 folks wanted a tire that could take some abuse. What came to happen would be this tire, that is probably the first self-supporting run flat tire on the market. How cool? These tires are also built to go 202mph. I'm not sure of many street cars that are out there that could attain that speed, but if you're rocking a Gumpert Apollo or whatever, then maybe this would be for you. These tires are made once a year in Japan and specifically for Denloc wheels, and they can't even be exported! Unless you have some pretty kick ass hardware, I have to suggest you move to a more versatile tire.
