Michelin Pilot Sport 2's, Toyo Proxes, or Goodyear F1 Assymetric.

P-zero Nero. The rosso's aren't up to much IMO let go in an all or nothing kind of way.

Michelins would be my second choice.

Just coming up to needing new fronts on my 1.9 JTD so this has been useful. I know the GT is hard on tyres but is 10000miles about right for the original Pirellis? What's the best to get a bit more mileage? The Goodyears seem to be getting the thumbs up.

Toyo Proxes TR-1 come recommended by myself, quiet compared to dunlops (although some squealing can be fun) and very good levels of grip in dry and wet

Don't know about the Alfa yet, but Toyo Proxxes or F1's always did it for me on hot hatches. But they wear down rapidly.
Best balance between grip and wear is Bridgestone. Have them on all my bikes and had them on most of my cars.
Michelin are longer lasting, but pricey.

In general I say put a car on tyres from the same country. So put rice rockets on jap tyres, German cars on Contis and Italians probably on Pirelli.

Always be aware that the factory equipped tyre is the one the beancounters opted for, not the one the engineers would like to have... Always nice to have pics of prototype cars and see what they had put on.

If you have not already made a choice. Goodyear F1 Asymmetrics sound good , I have the sister tyres on my GT, Dunlop SP Sport Maxx TTs are also Asymmetric, absolutely great rejuvenated my 4 year ole GT .

Pirreli P ZERO NERO,
I have just had them fitted alround ,
Top grip.
Another happy punter with the p-zero nero's. did you have the rosso's before hand?? I find the nero's to be much better.

I think they were Michelins,but I did a lot of research and even Alfa reccomend the P ZERO NEROS and they fit anything they are supplied with.I had 2 petrol 147s before and they had Firestone and Continental respectedly.
Hope I havnt confused you but I really like these Italian tyres.

No confusion, my GT came with the p-zero rosso's standard. There not bad but seem to break away easier than the p-zero nero's do. I'm considering changing to the nero's after just 1800miles on the rosso's.

I am not too fussed whether I have italian tyres or not. If another countries tyres are better and at the right price thats what my car gets.

Quite a few of the parts on italian cars are not italian anyway. :rolleyes:
