Iv used tyreleader for the past 3 or so years when it comes to purchasing tyres in various sizes for different cars. I'm not a fan of cheap 'ditch finder' tyres, there usually ok in the dry but it's the wet weather/greasy roads/ standing water where there just plain dangerous imo.
Uniroyal rainsport3 @£130 are a good buy, admittedly Iv not had them on the Alfa so can't comment on wear etc, but had them on a Passat CC which came with Vred's on which weren't very good
Toyo proxes T1 sport @£125, again Iv not used them on the alfa but had them on a couple smaller hatch backs , and they were ok
Pirelli pzero nero GT @ £132. These came on my 159, there fairly comfortable and grippy, I'm lead to believe these are The OEM tyres from new . Iv only had the 159 a couple of weeks so I'm going to monitor wear, Iv read the 159 is heavy on its front tyres
I wouldn't mind try the Goodyear eagle f1 asym 2/3 on the Alfa as they where good on my old BMW,and also the newer Michelin pilot sport 4 but these are both premium priced tyres.it would depend on my budget at the time
