A wild guess: EB Falcon GT, which I know has 17" wheels and Pirelli P Zero tyres. Probably 245/45 R17 size.

I thought the EB GT had Yokohama A510s in 245/40 17.

But I've been wrong before!

I just looked it up (Wheels, November '92) and I happen to be correct regarding the tyre type and size at least. I'm as shocked as you... :s2:

Jack, you do not have the correct size!!!!!

BTW russellw, the Yokahama A510 is a directional tyre, not asymetrical.

Neither of you have specified the rim size.

I thought the 245 wouldn't fit and so 235/45 was used. The rim size was 17x8 (??) Tyres were of course the P-Zero Asimetrico as opposed to the directional version of the P-Zero.

Between all of you, you have the correct answer! No-one individually has the correct answer yet!

17 x 8.5, 245/40 R17

Wheels magazine were apparently wrong about the aspect ratio first time around.

You finally got it right. And they were Pirelli P Zero Asimetrico as Aussie Pete said.
