Lets just leave it as Factory USE only cars up to vin # 648.Not 
intended for  customer sale or use. To be destroyed or used for parts.

P.S. vin # 570 WAS a factory assigned  car to a Mr.Rezneck I think 
that was his name,

I agree if they were DOT tested would make them production cars because 
if they were pre-production they would have never wasted their time DOT 
testing them.

Tell me why they would DOT test a pre-production car that was never 
meant to be sold?

You did not mention how often you drive your car and under what
conditions.  Many Delorean owners that use their car only a few
times during the summer may want to buy a completely different
type of tire that someone from the "Sun Belt" may want to buy 
for use all year and for areas such as Florida, you may want to
have tires that handle well in the rain.

There are several types of tires that handle storage better than
others without developing flat spots.  Type of storage, length of
storage as well as other temperature and weather conditions will
factor in the type of tire you should purchase.
