Can anyone shed any light on this anomaly?

Look carefully and you'll see a dunlop sticker on the door but Firestone markings on the tyres.

Maybe the F1 connection helps?

And also from wikipedia:
275 GTB/C: Competition cars were fitted with special Borrani wire wheels, shod with Dunlop's latest racing tires. It was this combination that would prove to be the weak spot of the 275 GTB/C; the tires had so much grip that they could overstress and break the spokes on the wheels. After the 275 GTB/C, no competition Ferrari would be fitted with wire wheels again.

Also 1966 250 GT used Dunlop break discs.

And the best is the last: same discussion in another forum:

Hope this helps things along.
Mark.
Mark!
