HI, has anyone on here ever put lower profile tires on the brera before?

I've been looking at the tires on the brera and i have been wanting to go lower on the profile, as it seems a little chunky.

I'm not asking for any replies saying "Why would you want to do that!?", just any helpful insights or help.

Thanks in advance

Harvey :thumbs:

I have the 19" Brera S wheels.

But i'm not sure about the tyre sizes, but theyre the standard ones i believe.

235/40/19 i believe.

You should end up having a diameter close to 26.4". If you go lower your speedometer will find it hard to measure your speed. And a lower profile will make your wheels look small.

Off course you can get bigger rims: 235/30/21 will be about the same diameter and p r e t t y low profile.

I had Pirelli PZero Rosso 235/35R19s 91Y (non-XL).

They had cracked on all inner sidewalls after only 3 months.

My advice: Get the right load rating, and then worry about aesthetics/cost.

the 245/40 option will only make them look bigger. 245 are ok though, they don't mess things too badly

You may already know this, but just to point out that putting a different size tyre/load rating will give your insurer an "out" if you make a claim. If they do an inspection that is.
