    Quite a few people have fitted the 295 Michelin PS4S tyres to their cars, and some are reporting rubbing while others say there is no issue. It would be very helpful if those with the 295 tyres could share their build dates and whether or not they have had any issues with rubbing? This way we...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Been a while since I was on this forum. Just a quick question on behalf of my son. I have searched for this but to no avail. On his 2011 Giulietta, the running lights have never worked. Appears the drivers side have gone off so the near side switch off by default. Is this normally a case of...
