After noticing the difference winter tyres made to our 156 last year, I am going to do the same for the 159. It wasn't the snow performance that was most impressive, it was the lack of sliding on wet/frozen roads early in the morning. The 156 is easy - you can pick up a set of teledials for peanuts...
I am slowly assembling a set of TI alloys - trying to avoid paying £250 a pop for the wheels. When it comes to tyres, Falken do a tyre for a scratch under £200, which seems reasonable. Falken are a good make, so probably can be trusted.
It will also settle the Accelera argument for me. If the car is transformed by different tyres, I won't be getting Acceleras again. If (on a warm day) the new tyre performance is no different, then I will stick with the Acceleras as summer tyres.
