    F40 kit tires

    Just aquired a F40 from Canada- being delivered in 3 weeks.Previous owner says right rear tire needs replacement due to a cut. It is a Michelin 315/40R16. I cannot find a supplier who has heard of this size of tire. Anyone know something they don't, or what tire might replace this, and not drastically alter the ride heighton the car? Thanks

    Have not had time to verify this but if memory serves me well I believe those were the Michelin Pilot series and are discontinued (Canada).

    I'm not 100% sure but I believe that Carbuilder is correct. I think Michelin discontinued that size.

    The tires that came on the rear of an F-40 were 335/35 X 17
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    No one makes 315/40/16 anymore - I ended up buying new compomotive's in 17" size
