Thread: Winter tyres for Qp

  1. #31
    On the (US) Maserati-life forum, ErikDiSomma is running 325’s on 19” so 295 should fit. However, I was under the impression that you were looking for winter tyres, so unless you want to take up sleighing, stick to the 285

    Well took the plunge yesterday.
    4x19" rims on their way from Italy - cheaper to pay in Euro than £'s ??
    4 Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4's on their way from Mytyres.co.uk.
    All expected to arrive about the same time next week, so get the sun cream out, I suspect Winter has just finished and we'll have the warmest spring ever recorded............ ?! you wait..

    Cheers

    I was going to make the same point. If the conditions merit summer tyres you should have them on both axles, if the conditions merit winter tyres you should have them on both axles, anything else is asking for leaving a roundabout ar5e first.

    I know people who wouldn't mix manufacturers, or models, across axles - because all tyres have different coefficients of grip.
