I really don't see the difference as to what car they are used on. Manufacturers don't make tyres for a specific vehicle unless you're talking supercars which we're not. If you don't drive over 20 mph perhaps the difference in tyres is a moot point.
It seems people who are currently using Acceleras might need to somehow justify to themselves why they bought them but in my experience they were inferior in practice. Yes they cost less but I don't think tyres are an area where it makes sense to skimp but that is my opinion and I don't mean to offend anyone.
Sorry but it totally does - these tyres are NOT good from feedback on high powered rwd cars...yes they are rubbish from what BMW, Scooby owners tell us. However 159TI owners tell us the exact opposite because the characteristics of the car suit the tyre...is this luck, maybe....they just work on this car.....what is the stat something like people are 10x more likely to complain about a product that is poor rather than praise a product that is good. Yet man owners continue to tell us this Tyre is absolutely fine in all situations.
Are all 159 owners that daft to say these tyre's are fine just to feel good about their purchase ?.....give people a bit more credit than that.
The other thing to remember is the majority of people saying these tyres are fine have experience of BOTH premium and acceleras, those saying they are not good haven't even used them...
The only acid test is to get two 159's on a wet road side by side, one using them one not and emergency stop at 60...see what the difference is.
Again Alfa dealers fit these tyres now......that tells me more than enough about their safety qualities.
I'm basing my assesment on 18K miles driving on these tyres on often challenging wet & greasy roads in North Yorkshire where tractors dont often look before appearing from a gap in the hedgerow...
