When I used to live in the Melbourne CBD I'd frequently walk past one parked on Lonsdale street. I wasn't a fan but started to appreciate it after seeing it every day for a month or so.

I'm a specialist actually ;)

Misdiagnoses are free; we bury our mistakes :)
And i'm a vet. We shoot ours...[but not the mistakes]...........THEN bury them.
Espada................1969 S II!
THE classic exotic, also THE undervalued and "forgotten" supercar, and THE definitive piece of vehicular style/art.
But with Giotto Bizzarini responsible for the engine and Marcello Gandini and Georgetto Giugiaro- later Ital Design - under Nuccio Bertone's eye and tutelage how was it going to be bettered?
Small subject of query:
Tyres!
Brand/s, availability?
Any advice out there pleez?

Anyone else like the Espada?  It'll always have a place in my heart as it was the first Lamborghini I ever saw.

Here's a thread showing some cars.  I'm not really into classics, but if I was, an Espada would have to be on the list.  It is a unique shape and looks so damn cool.  :cool:

Speaking of suspension repairs, that one looks like it could use new rear springs.  Or maybe he's got a grand piano in the boot.
Probably new shocker bushes needed.

For tyres, it's Original XWX, or don't bother!

Anything else in OE sizes is either a light commercial truck tyre or taiwanese junk, or both.

Just go to Longstone tyres UK website/contact, and buy if you're penny pinching.

Or buy through a Michelin supplier here for about ~25% higher price.

Falkens are junk?
That may explain smooth bitumen wet road severe abruptness.

Mind you, in twenty-one jahr until I got it it has done just 4700 miles.

Sehr gut.

245/16's for P38a Rangie were $400-plus last time I had to buy a Synchrome

Not even Pirelli do one?

Had XWX's on a V8 XA Flaygoon top-loader HD stropped, Heasemaned race-truck work ute once.
Yecch!
Welded the sump as the direct  result a watercourse and these regards a lack of straight-line stopping  somewhere up nth of Hawker [Sth Oz] on dirt.
Went back to my usual Bridgestone ER70-H-102's.
Pity Michelin do not have Pilotes in the size.
That is a tyre keeps you alive.
Have a VP I Polis Commode' Interceptor runs these on the Simmons 15 x 7's.
Magic rubber.
Still.................must be..............will be........and ta the info eh.
------------------------------------
I didn't know that Lancia brought in the 8.32 to Oz.
That IS good wheels.
Is the tinworm factor Russian CRCDQ mild steel well-salted as deck and hold cargo from the Danube to Milan as was the case with every other Iveco I've had, or had to do with?
On a still night you could hear them working.
If it's not a rude Q, whereabouts are you located?

crikey!

where to start....

Ok, it's 15" wheels and XWXs or nothing.... that's if you want to drive a nice car that feels as it should and steers like a car (not truck), and Ferrucio would love you in a way a Bull loves a cow.

8.32s were not bought to Oz, mine is rust free and from japan. 60k km only, as new in many ways, amazing car.

I'm located on the internet, or by pm, or if you had to randomly guess (or read my profile like you have already ;) ), Braeside, VIC.
