  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 159 TBi Ti came out of the factory on 92Y rated tyres. The handbook says that Ti tyres should be 96Y, but doesn't specify the engine. Given that the curb weight of the 1750 is some 200kgs less than a 2.4 or 3.2 it doesn't seem unreasonable that it would have tyres with less stiff sidewalls...

    Cant find any details on the Alfa Giulietta alternator size/amp rating. I drive the 2015 1.4 turbo model.
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I've been offered a set of tyres for my 156 1.8 Twin Spark which runs on 17-inch Collezione alloys. The tyres currently fitted have a load/speed rate of 91W. The tyres I've been offered are the perfect size but are 87W. I never load up the car with luggage and rarely carry passengers...

    My 159 1.9JTDm needs a new battery... As I see it, there are 4 aspects to a car battery - Ah, CCA, physical size and terminal layout: The Ah doesn't matter - that is how much charge the battery can hold. The higher the Ah, the longer the battery will run uncharged. The CCA is the amount of...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Can anyone with 2 or more cars beat me? 3 stars, yep THREE stars for the two cars in total. One star for the G Wagen and in the latest publication of this pathetic excuse for a magazine 2 for the Alfa. It’s the JDPower one:mad:. On the one hand I’m ashamed to admit I’ve actually given it any...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I had to get a new tyre a couple of days ago as I thought it had a puncture, but when the guy took it off, he said it must have been running under inflated as on the inside of the tyre it had three handfuls of what looked like grated rubber. So he said he couldn't re-fit it.:cry: Anyway tyres...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Thought it would be a good idea to get some new tyres as mine were fast approuching smooth. Normally I get Pirelli's but noticed there's a new EU tyre rating system.. Guide to EU Tyre Labelling - New Legislation from November 2012 I checked the tyres I'm currently running and they were rated...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello peeps, I have a 147 sport 8v JTDm 120. It is shod with W rated Toyo tr1's (on when i bought it). As far as I can tell the handbook says W rated but to be honest it's not very clear about my model. When I type in the reg.no. to any of the online tyre sites they all say it should be Y rated...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hey guys I know it's important to have the 96Y tyres on a 159 Ti, but i'm potentially looking at some new wheels that are 20" so the tyres are different obviously I've found something that is 245/35/20 Z XL. No number for the load rating Will they be safe to use?
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys hope you can help. Im in need of 2 front tyres for my 53 plater Alfa 147 1.9JTD. The size of my tyres as printed on the present tyres is 205/55 R16 94W. I normally buy my tyres online (fitted) as ive always found it cheaper than going to garages. When searching for tyres under...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    Alfa Romeo Giulietta Hatchback - Summary - New Car Review - What Car? The Giulietta was reviewed favourably by What Car and it was awarded a 4 Star rating....Now they reckon it's only worth 3!? The review is exactly the same text wise....Alfa will never get a fair break in the UK it seems even...

The replacement unit that has turned up is a 90Amp one, i phoned the guy up and he said that it was fine and this is the replacement unit even tho i stated part...
  14. Alfa GTA
    Still dont own a GTA maybe one day! On the fiat coupe forum people speak of the GTA clutch as an upgrade. I know the GTA clutch will fit without issue and i know the standard coupe clutch will take around 300lbs ft of torque before slipping. The question is how much torque will a GTA clutch...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right then, its tyre time for the front end of the 156 and i was just wondering what choice of tyre to go for and also the rating of it as i currently have 205/55/16v Nankangs which are woefull. I was looking for a better quality all round tyre and wondered if other than the obvious with the...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just fitted some new continetal tyres to my 156. The first two I had fitted at a different time with no problems but when I went to have the front two fitted I was told that they are the wrong rating for the car. The guy had a book and showed me that the 156 sportwagon jtd m jet with 17"...

    i have looked at the NCAP site and they dont list anything older than a 147
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    For three years ive had 95y rated tyres on my 159 2.2 jts, came like this from dealer and i just had them replaced - pzero rosso 95y. However looking at the door sticker card it says i should have 98w in a 235/45/18, mine are 235/40/18 on a set of mak alloy wheels. So to summarise is the 95y...
  19. General Alfa Discussion
    I'm really chuffed Autocar tested our PSI Powerbox for turbo diesels, using my Alfa 159 jtdm a couple of weeks ago and really put it through its paces ( I was really really nervous, I've never let anyone including my wife drive it before). The end result is they have given us a four star rating...
  20. General Alfa Discussion
    I think I may have been conned after having new tyres fitted yesterday. I enquired about price and availability and was told Avon tyres would be ideal for my 166 3ltr. I gave them the ok to fit the tyres, after requesting to see them. They looked fine and looked a close match pattern wise to the...
