Hi Tony

Although not dangerous to fit onto the rim, those tyres are not correct and have a slightly difference circumference to 235/40/19. Let us know how you get on when you ask them to change them.

Not the first time a main dealer has sent the car out with the wrong tyres fitted either...

My ti has accelras on the front. The wheels have been re-alligned since it had P zero's on so difficult to measure wear tyre to tyre, but the accelras have lasted and stick well.

2.2 Brera S

Just to let you guys know, I've been keeping an eye out for used 235/40 19 P Zero's on ebay and managed to get one with 6mm tread for 65 deliveried. It wasn't even a repaired tyre after a puncture. There's always a few on, and there a handy way to replace a tyre if ones run balder than the others (like mine at the moment 3 corners on 4-6mm tread, 1 on 2mm).

Think when I've 2 tyres down to 3mm's next yr, I'll make my mind up whether to go new P Zero's or Accelera's then. (either way, I'm dreading winter in these tyres again).
