Re: new tyres
My 147 came new with NCT5 fitted. I used them only one summer /12000km/ and than I sold them, because of changing to 17''. So I can not comment how long they last. But I would not buy them again.
I agree with AlfaAlfa, you have to be carefull on wet. Even on dry road they start to slip quite early. Especialy by breaking. Some times I was surprised to activate ABS on dry road so early.
Now I drive on Bridgestone Potenzas Re050. Great tyres. I can not compare them fairly enough with NCT5 because of different size used, but by now, they were in all conditions excelent.
