  3. Koni Sports don't work with 225/45/17

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Ive just had koni sports fitted to the front of my gtv and the spring pan is actually sitting on the tyre. Drove it 5 miles or so and the paint on the bottom of the spring pan has already started to come off. Im sure I'm not the only one who has fitted koni sports to a ts, has anyone else and if...

  6. 225/45/17 tyres - definitive answer?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Was looking at next set of tyres moving to the 225 instead of the 215/45. They are listed in the manual as being fitted to the 3.2V6 mmodel however I have a couple of concerns. 1- The manual lists the Pirelli Pzero rosso and Bridgestone (?) as being the only ones in 225/45 17 certified for use...
  7. Tyres: 215/45/17 or 205/45/17?

    Alfa MiTo
    It looks like it's time to get some new rubber on the Mito, but the question is 205 or 215?? At present it has 215/45/17 91Y Pirelli PZero Nero on. I have no complaints, they are certainly more compliant than the Michelins and Bridgestones that have shod courtesy cars I have used and after...

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm trying to sort these out now rather than during the panic that's sure to ensue when the first snow is forecast but I'm having trouble finding any to fit my MiTo's 17" wheels. From trying various sites' tyre searches there doesn't seem to be much in 215/45/17 and none at all with a W or...
  9. 235/45/17 on 147 GTA

    Alfa GTA
    I researched this heaps and couldn't find a definitive answer on this topic. So I thought I should share my experience and let you know that it CAN be done. I took a gamble and put 235/45/17 on my standard teledials and, although very close, it can be done. My car has stock suspension and I...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone use these tyres and noticed that the price of them has come down significantly lately? I'm getting them for £72 supplied and fitted. I hear it's cos they are discontinued stock and they are just selling off what they've got. Anyone know what the replacement is? I've heard it's an...

  17. Why doesn't the 156 GTA have 215/45/17 as standard instead of 225?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Why doesn't the 156 GTA have 215/45/17 as standard instead of 225? I'm considering potentially getting some Silverstone Type RR tyres for track days, and these only come with a 215 width: http://www.silverstone.com.my/tyre_ftzTypeRR_spec.asp They seem pretty keenly priced, apparently only £85...
