re: 159 / Brera / Spider tyre wear issues - VIP - Revised Information
Interesting thread this.
I have had my 159 1.9D SW from new. After about 4,000 miles I noticed that the front tyres were wearing faster on the inside, so took it into Kwikfit, who modified the tracking to be more like a "normal" setting (Sorry, can't be more precise than that).
The front tyres were then good until approx 20,000 miles, when they needed replacing.
In the meantime, the car was serviced (at 18,000 miles), and I asked the AR dealer to check the tracking, as the car squirmed a bit under heavy braking on uneven surfaces. They set the alignment to AR standard settings.
I am now at 24,000 miles, and the front tyres are definitely wearing faster on the inside again. As soon as I get a chance, I will be getting it back into Kwikfit to get the tracking set to something "normal".
I have not noticed a difference in handling between the Kwikfit and AR settings.
