    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I posted in February 2012 about abnormal tyre wear on my Alfa Brera and I was directed to a thread which listed 1000+ owners complaining about a similar problem. I have been writing to AR over the past couple of months but have just been brushed aside and they are blaming me for the problem! I...
  2. abnormal tyre wear

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All, The Mito went in for a service recently and we were told that the tracking was out causing tyre wear on the front driver side tyre. Went to a tyre centre that I regularly use and he categorically said it was not the tracking, probably the camber is off. Anyone had a similar problem...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I have a 159 Q4. Last week I noticed the right front tyre had cut through to the steel on the inside. The front left is on its way. I have done 14,000km's. The dealer hasn't heard of any problems with alignment but doesn't have any 159's with that many km's to compare. Has anyone heard...
