159 tyres?

Front tyres on my 159 need replacing, currently has Michelin Primacy tyres all round but these are ridiculously expensive, so was looking at Continentals which seems to be more reasonably priced while still decent. I'd heard at some point mis-matching tyres can affect the traction control, is this the case or is it ok as long as each axle set is the same?

Stupid question, probably.

I'm sure having an axle set the same will be fine.

I use Uniroyal Rainsport 2 on my Lusso, and they are superb. Will tick all your boxes.

Its the Q4 that really needs matching tyres all round, on the FWD you should be OK having an axle set match
