  1. Michelin tyres, over-rated and over-priced?

    General Motoring Discussion
    I've never bought Michelins for any car I've owned, I've had them on cars I've bought and vehicles I've used for work. Some people wouldn't buy anything else but, I really don't think they're that great. My experience of them is that they do wear well, but it is a hard compound tyre so it...
  2. New Tyres

    Alfa Giulia

    Alfa GTA
    I chucked a post up in the 147, 156, & GT lounge, forgot about you guys too! I've got a set of GTA alloys (plus another set of non-Alfa wheels) for sale - poor condition, they definitely need a refurb. Post and pics here...
  4. Set of Winter Tyres Available ...

    Alfa Giulia
    (I had a quick look for a forum FAQ to see what the rules were about effectively advertising stuff for sale but couldn't find anything so apologies in advance if I'm flouting any rules) As confirmed in the "Link" thread, I binned my Giulia Quadrifoglio back in April, four days after putting the...

    Sold: 19 TI Wheels + Tyres My 19 TI wheels are up for sale, I was originally going to transfer them over from my Launch Edition Giulietta I sold to my manual Cloverleaf one I have now, however I quite like it as it is with the 18 horseshoes in which just a little subtle lowering will work for...
  7. Winter Tyres

    Alfa Giulia
    Looking for some opinions on a set of winters for Veloce. Looking for Pirelli, to take advantage of the AROC fuel card offer. I know that Sottozero 3 are probably best but fairly expensive. Any others you would recommend? Also, anyone know of any tyre hotels in the Southend area to store my...
  8. Anyone tried Nankang Sportnex tyres.

    Alfa Giulietta
    As per title. They look like they prioritise grip but I suspect they may be awful to live with on a road car. Anyone have any experiences specific to this tyre. Sent from my BBB100-2 using Tapatalk
  9. Anyone know where I can get the AR pzero corsa 245 fron tyres?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi, I've been reading on this forum for a little while but had no reason to post until now. I've got a 2017 Giulia QF which originally was meant to be a weekend car but my daily driver ended up gathering dust as I just couldn't find a good reason not to use the Alfa for every journey. The...

  12. Airless tyres

    The Technology Section
    No thank you, Mr Dunlop. There is a new idea in development which won't puncture, give a bad ride if it's a runflat, need to be kept to a particular pressure, use stupid TPMs or wear unevenly. It's also police stinger proof...

  14. Front tyres

    Alfa Giulia
    Good evening folks. Noticed that the front tyres have worn on the inside. Have done 20k but their is plenty of tread on the other 3/4 of the tyre. Had the same issue with my old 159 and was told to have the tracking set to 0. Anybody else had this fault.

  16. Winter Tyres or not

    Alfa Giulia
    So following on from my last post, I'm really interested in the Giulia however one reservation I have is the rear wheel drive. Having driven the 4x4 for almost 6 years and previously many front wheel drive cars winter has been no real problem but going back to rear wheel drive only could have...
