Re: 159 2.4 JTDm What are the best tyres?
I have found that only Bridgestone and Pirelli have suitable 17" tyres for the 159 2.4 because of the weight. Local tyre co also tell me that the Bridgestones of same size and design vary from BMW, Audi TT, other Audis and the 159 so be specific. My tyres are evenly worn and nearing the end of their life at 23000m, swapped around at 16,000.Amazing really because the car wanders all over the place under power on anything except near perfect surfaces.
I have had the front Pzero Rossos roll onto the sidewall a few times but, from what I have read, I think Pirelli win over the Bridgestones.
