I have the cinturato P7 on my giulietta aswell. Definitely not a bad tyre, but they don't take standing water exceptionally well, and they are quite noisy on concrete. The P7 blue would be better. Very low fuel consumption aswell. Last forever it seems. don't notice any wear yet after 13.000 km (so expect no more than 2mm gone) while the goodyear eagle f1 GSD3 I had on my 156 were pretty much completely bald at this mileage. Those were more quiet on concrete and better in standing water though.
But the P7 aren't really performance tyres, just on the upper end of gran turismo tyres, I'd say.
For my next set I'll either go for the P7 cinturato blue, or the NOKIAN ZLINE. From what I can gather from another alfa owner with these tyres they are the dogs danglies... and he's very picky when it comes to tyres, replaced a half worn set of Continentals Sportcontact 5s as they didn't convince him.
