    Rear bodywork has been widened if that helps. Has the factory rears on the front and aftermarket (Im guessing) 11" on the rear.

    what tires are better for the BB 512 with the size back 345/35 R 15:
    pirelli cinturato P7 or P zero asimmetrico?

    or are there other manufacturers producing those sizes?

    I would say a P7 would suit the chassis better

    https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/1949/s/345-35zr15-pirelli-cinturato-p7/category/9287/

    I would suggest this thread is very long https://www.lamborghinichat.com/forum/threads/countach-tires-does-anyone-care.508651/ but you will get all the answers you are after from it.

    here are the opptions in that size https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/tyres/345-35-15.html

    If you want something really wild you will like these https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/tyres/345-35-15/29-61-15-michelin-tb5r.html

    on this page there is the size 335 ( not 345 ) / 35 W 15

    why you list the size 335 under the title 345?

    is this tire street legal? can not use it because this size is not standing in my papers and no TUEV here in germany will do this.


    the price for the asimmetrico seems to me very high. can get those here incl. sales tax for under 700,- €
    you are sure with your price?

    I sent you a PM yesterday also


    the countach is a complete different car and can not be compared with the BB.
    so again here my question to the members:
    what tire is for better handling ( so no town traffic, only nice curvy roads between 70 and 180 km/h and dry weather ) on the BB?
    P 7 or P zero asimmetrico

    Is this 512BB chassis number 19885 as discussed here?

    The UK licence plate should have an R suffix, not a P as in the case of OBU 883P.

    A 512 Boxer does not look right a P plate. The model was not introduced until October, 1976 at the Paris Salon. UK registrations at that time had an R suffix.

    Because it is such an unusual size there was nothing else before the P7 became available. so we were glad to be able to offer something. And for the Porsche and Lancia Stratos that fit them, they didn't care. they were only fitting the P-Zero, because the P7 werent available for the road and the TB wasn't avaialble for Rallys.


    Yep. They are a Tarmac Rally tyre. https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/vintage-tyres/michelin-classic-tyres.html and they are amazing. The grip is staggering. I raced on them and they were too good for me to get the best out of.


    Germany has very strict rules. However if you need help with this in Germany these guys are great https://www.oldtimerreifen24.de/en/oxid-oxid-5/345-35VR15-95Y-Pirelli-P7.html?listtype=search&searchparam=345%2F35r15 and they are the German distributers of the Pirelli Collezione range.


    I have managed to keep the price of the P7 down. i think they are incredibly cheap. I should buy some quick. I think the price will have to go up a lot in the very near future. (that sounds like a sales pitch, but when you check out their competitors you will see i am right. They are really good value)

    Car magazine’s design was so ahead of its time. Great cover. Striking even now.
    That only ended in the early 2000s with the decline of the automotive magazine era.

    Correctme if i'm wrong, but i think hard copy car magazine sales have bounced back a little since 2008 ish. i think when we had a bit of a depression sales fell quite dramatically, but now people have realised they quite like haveing an actual magazine to read o the train, plane or bog.
