156 Selespeed Tyres

Really need to replace the front set of tyres as they are not far away from the blocks and aren't much use in our summer weather any recomendations ??.....completely std 51 plate veloce with only 18k.

Also ....have only had the car 8 weeks and put 6k miles on her but have noticed that the "glossy" covering to steering wheel is starting to peel leaving a dull soft patch by sillyspeed buttons and on wheel where the hand naturally sits !!!.....has anyone experienced this ? and if so any ideas on how it can be stopped ?

Re: 156 Selespeed Tyres

There are lots of threads on here about tyres, and its quite an emotive subject. Try do a search for tyres. I am currently runnning Toyo T1-Rs though I had Falken FK-452 on my last car and I thought they were better.

Not sure about the steering wheel, maybe you have sweaty palms.

Re: 156 Selespeed Tyres

Seaty palms eh? The excitement of driving the alfa.

Get some Toyo T1-R's come highly recommended. Alternatively Goodyear F1's.

I'm running the Toyos.
