Anyone know of anyone anywhere that has any 265/35/ZR18 GSD3s for sale?

Just discovered my rears are illegal and no-one around here can get any (on back order apparently). Desparate attempt to find some before I have to bite the bullet and buy fronts as well (only 1/3 worn).

Tried Micheldever, Bracknell, Motrospot, Stapletons, Black Circles so far...

If anyone can help I will be very grateful

Thanks Fiona... Unfortunately checked after tyre centres closed and I need to ask if these are the same tyres as they are Y rated and my current ones are Z rated. Will try in the morning as I have a tendency to do stuff like this,

Goodyear F1's are not Porsche N rated

I know, but they're the best road tyres I've ever had - amazing wet grip, but most importantly already fitted on the front (and only about 1/3 worn!)

I've got GSD's on my Carerra and they are great tyres. From what I understand and from what black circles told me its only the newer Porkers that req N rated as its an Insurance issue. Us oldies are OK as long as we use the approp speed rated ones. Hope you get sorted out today with the tyres.



Cheers

Heard a different story from each person I phoned - some tried to fob me off with Y-rated tyres (up to 150mph - clearly no use to me!) Others said they were discontinued, someone said the whole of the UK was only getting two tyres from the next production run, etc...

Decided to use another car and wait for the local specialist that I have been dealing with for years, and trust implicitly, to get some in (or advise on an alternative).

would agree as on my last non-911 nothing else would do...

but Porsche rated is also means Porsche tested

Replace all 4 keep the fronts obviously for when the GSD are back in.

I recommend some proper N-rated Michelins or Bridgestones, stuff the Pirellis (unless Corsas) and Contis (I don't like them).

At least then you can drive your Porsche rather than looking at her!

TBH I could do with keeping the mileage down a bit anyway - it's hardly a garage queen, having done nearly 40k in the two years I've owned it!!!

Also I have free use of a brand new Freelander 2 3.2i6 Auto, which is almost as much fun to drive (and will be a lot lot better if we get the snow that's forecast next week!)

I know what you mean mines done 42k in the last three years and it grieves me to put 'boring' miles on her.

Snow? Should make the station carpark interesting!!!!
