    Hi folks I am looking to replace the old and frankly rubbish cheap tyres on my 156 V6 with some nice F1 Eagles but wanted to increase the section slightly to 225. Now this means that the aspect ratio of the new tyres will have to be slightly different to the old 215’s but can anyone tell me...

  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a late 2003 P3 GTV which needs some new tyres. I happen to have a brand new set of Continentals - but they are 225 45 R16. I have Googled whether this size would be suitable on the GTV and I feel the total lack of info rather answers my question. So, please could someone...

    I currently have Dunlops all round and needing to change at least the fronts. Can anyone suggest any better all round suitable alternatives? Regards Andy
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone experienced any issues on this?? My garage reliably informs me that my suspected wheel bearing issue is highly likely to be worn rear tyres (4 and 5mm respectively). Cost differential between the sizes is shaking out at £15+ cheaper a corner to go wider, so giving it some serious...

    Hi, Has anyone managed to fit 225 width tyres on a 164? How badly do they foul the front wheel arch liners on lock?
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, I've scoured the archives to find very mixed messages regarding 225 45 17 tyres on the GT? Most say its OK but some disagree, I'll be running on new alloys from cittagome and have standard JTS suspension. Does the GT not have slightly more space upfront than a standard 147 or 156...

    I remember one member sold there Gta and bought a 225. Well I bought one the other day for the wife as the x5 was playing up and I got fed up and the cupra was well priced. Ok car but for 225 I expected a bit more go lol, this one is standard apart from and engine rebuild which included forged...
  11. Alfa MiTo
    Hi Guys! I´m looking forward to replace my tires on a 155Tb Mito and I have been recommended to fit 225 45 17. The reason is the poor road conditions here. 225 45 17 would be a bit bigger, more air inside the wheel and less crashy ride Anyone with this configuration? Any recommendations? PD: I...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, I know it seems as though this question has been beaten to death but I couldn't find any up to date threads on the 225 50 17 98W/Y size fitted to Lusso spec models. I'm currently running P zero Rossos but in 94 load rating which were actually dealer fitted! The fronts are getting low so...

    well had 235 45 17 on for a week now and must say they are kak :vomit: feels like the suspension is coming of every time u hit a bump, going around a corner,the body roll is plenty and it feels like the car went from having a pair of slops on to heavy work boots with steel caps, in 6th driving...

    Hi guys, I own a 156 1.9JTDm 16V which has factory sports suspensions and the multispokes. Tyres on the manual are rated at 215/45 ZR 17 W. I got some Uniroyals with those specs from its previous owner. I'm interested in moving to the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta's as they are very well rated...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I searched the forum and I couldnt find an answer. Can I fit 225/45 tires on original TI rims. I bought them 2 days ago, and the car steers to the right, and the tires are really bad, one is damaged, I think thats why it steers left. So I'm gonna buy new tires, but since I spent money on the...
