Alfa Romeo 159

Tyre size

Going back to the standard 17" alloys because my 18" aftermarke t ones are bent beyond repair. My question is this. What is the correct tyre size/speed and load rating. Also give me your brand of tyre choice.

Just do a thread search for R17 in this lounge.

225/50 R17 98 XL. You need at least a V speed rating, but W are available in a few more tyres and the price difference is so small you may benefit from the increased choice.

Correct above. Just looking myself for some

Contis seem popular with many threads on tyres including one I've been in a lot.

Vredestein sessantas don't do right size so for mid priced tyres I'm probably going for the hankook v12 evo after their good performance in several tests
