Hi all,

I recently bought a 53 reg 156 2.0L Selespeed Veloce 2. I have lovely Alfa 17" alloys and Rainsport 2 tyres. Afeter looking through the user manual, it seems to only have the tyre inflation levels for 15/16" alloys.

Anyone know what front and rear tyres should be inflated to with this tyre/alloy combination?

Cheers
:)

What size Rainsports? I'm running 225/45x17 at 38-40 psi that's equivalent to 2.6-2.8 bar. My manual states 2.4 F&R and 2.6 F&R with a full load.

I normally use about 37 on the front and a bit less on the rear

Hi reduced load front 2.4 rear 2.3 and full load front 2.7 rear 2.6 bar
That is for a 147, NOT a 156.

156 is 2.4 Bar front & rear for normal load, 2.6 Bar front & rear for full load.
(add 0.2 Bar for winter tyres)
