Re: the Alfa 159 - To be named

Just a thought... Did you get the front set of zero degree toe? The TI suspension geometry kills tyres to the point that alfa issued some new figures, but even them you get uneven wear. Consensus seems to be to just get them set to zero which is what i did and the tyres on that car are wearing perfectly and has done many thousands of miles since the tyres were fitted
