 :Welcome: That's a beautiful Europa, Lou. I love your tire & wheel package; very similar to what I would eventually like to fit to my own Europa. Are the wheels Revolutions? I'm also curious about the type and size of tire you are running. Cheers.

Nice looking.  I too like the wheels.

The tires were leftover from Mazda pro series and lotted out on e bay a while back, Yokohama Advan 048's in 185/60 /13 fronts and 205/60/13 rear...The wheels are as old as the car...Do you remember the Formula Libre series? and the Datsun B210 driven by Paul Newman. The wheels were made by Shelby and distributed thru American wheels and listed as Cobra.

 I will use them only on those special days with perfect conditions, otherwise the factory alloys are on most of the time.ld

Cheers for the info, Lou. Your plan is similar to mine, Lotus alloys & 70 series tires for road trips and normal driving, aftermarket alloys and sticky rubber for more enthusiastic driving. Actually, who am I kidding... any Europa drive has the potential to be an enthusiastic one  ;). I'm sure touring rubber for long road trips would be advised, though.

It looks stunning Lou, simply stunning.   That's one thing you can say about black paint when it's polished and clean, it really does look great.

Looking good, Lou. That is one very tidy Europa.
