1984 911 Carrera has as standard Porsche Rims  the front tire as 185/70VR15 and rear tire 215/VR15. These tires are not longer produced, therefore I need a siutable set of tires still in production. Is there any suitable set I can install and it is acceptable by National Transport Authority?

According to the lists I found. , Front is 195/65-15 and Rear 215/60- 15. but your options like you said are limited. I found Pirelli makes a summer tire. 'P6000' that come in those sizes. You can run other sizes to get you close without rubbing. Talk to your local tire installing for more details.

I have a 1995 911 Carrera and I have moved on from the original tires made by Continental. I have used Pirelli and now Bridgestone high performance tires. They are very good and easy to access. Check this out for your model

My street set up on a 1980 911 SC, Frnt 205-55-16. Rear, 245-45-16 on Fuchs 7's and 9's. Race set up, I changed the frnts to 215 and 225. Had to roll the front fender. Changing rims size allows you more tire choices. 16 & 17 will fit above tire size and under car without modifications. For 15's, You have a ton of choices at onlinetires dot com. Shop by tire size. Remember: When choosing a tire. The V-treads will have road noise. The lower the rear diameter (the middle number), the smaller the tire on your rim. This lowers the gear ratio, giving your 911 some pep. Federal or Kumho tires for under 60 bucks is a a great deal.
