Help 159 Tyres


I am new to the forum, but have previously owned a 156, a 159 lusso and now have the 159 LE that was brought out after the Bond film.

I am in need of new tyres, the current ones being Pirelli P Zero Nero's. 235/40 ZR 19 (96Y)

Do I have to get tyres with the 96 load rating, or could I go down to 92? The cheapest I can get replacements for is 850 ish.

Can any one help?

Hello and welcome to AO

The specific model lounge for the 159/Brera/Spider has a lot of threads and posts about tyres on the 159. Have a good lokk in there and use the search facility.

Unfortunately the 19'' tyres on these cars are expensive.

Thanks for the advice, sorry I put the question in the wrong place.

I guess that's the price you have to pay for driving something that looks so good!
