wax Comments: Thanks! Am leaning toward the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum, one of the remaining V-rated for the 15" 911 wheel sizes. Love Michelin, but they only have H-rated Primacy MXV4s, more of a sedan dire. Price of Kumhos is a surprise and reviews seem to be quite good. Think this is a good path?

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Sure. Have you looked into a Conti or Pirelli? - Nick at Pelican Parts  
wax Comments: I am looking for quality tire replacements for an '88 Carrera commemorative edition 15" 195/65/15 F 215/60/15 R It seems it's hard in 2014 to get good performance rubber for the car in 15s. Any suggestions? Thx!

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: I would say go with what the suggest on Tire Rack. That is my go to source. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
garyever Comments: I searched around Apple applications in the Apple Store and found "Numbers" which is apple's spreadsheet facsimmile of Microsoft XL, so if anyone asks in the future, that is the application that will open any .xls file ending. I would have thought with an .xls file ending on your file that apple would have open it in, or suggested I try to open it in Numbers, but not so.

Thanks for responding.

garyever Comments: Nick-this file opens in a program called Preview and there is an editing box, but is greyed out. I imported the file as a PDF and it opens in a PFD application, and shows unlocked, but it will still not allow editing. I have not been able to identify any thing else in Apple applications that will open .XLS files. Any other thoughts?

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Nothing comes to mind. Maybe the file needs to be converted. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
gary Comments: I downloaded the tire size calculator and opened the download which revealed the chart with several entries on the XL spreadsheet, but am unable to make any entries on the sheet. My laptop is a Mac book Pro and I suspect this tire size calculator sheet

fcoolbreeze Comments: I'm looking for 245/50/15 tires to fit the rear. Dunlop quit making them in 15's. They are 9's n 11's wide

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: These have been unavailable for a while. You can take a set of racing tires and have treads cut into them, or you can upgrade to 16" wheels, which are still available (but also getting harder to find). - Wayne at Pelican Parts  
Steve Comments: I have a stock 1974 914. Right now I have 165/60/r15 tires. What is the largest tires I can install with out rubbing?
April 29, 2010
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: it depends. I don't exactly remember what I had on my 914 before I put flares on it. I think they might have been 185s or 195s - Wayne at Pelican Parts  
Leandro Comments: Hi,
I have 69 911t with stock body. I just bought 7X16 for my rear and 6X16 for my front. What size of tires do I need?
October 27, 2009
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Check with the 911 Forums for suggestions, as different manufacturers have variations amongst different sizes, and the clearances will be close on that combination in your car. I normally don't recommend running 16s on the early cars as they often rub. - Wayne at Pelican Parts
