I have a 147 JTD16v and have just replaced the front tyres with 17inch Goodyear F1's. I am getting a noise from the front end which sounds very much like a worn wheel bearing noise. My local Alfa dealer reckons it is the tyres 'blocking' or 'stepping' on the inside. He showed me the uneven wear on the inside tread up on the lift. The tyre company I bought them off has had the same problem with other customers and he reckoned it was a problem on 17inch tyres. They have returned tyres to Goodyear as a fault but they say it is the car, not the tyres
Has anybody else experienced this and can you recommend a tyre to replace them with? The car came with Bridgestone Potenza.
