Re: Abarth 595 Turismo Grigio Record Metallizzato.

The Turismo is equipped with Koni FSD’s.
Now installing the H&R lowering springs.
20mm lower at the front and 35mm at the rear.
It will give the 595 a more level look.

It also will put back on the original Turismo wheels with new tires.
Falken Ziex ZE310 Ecorun in 205/40R17” - 84W, a much better tire IMHO, especially in the rain.

Ride height looks good but wouldn't be my tire choice to be honest.

Had them also on the 16 inch Panda wheels, drove great, no different on 17 inch.
Pirelli Pzero Nero are not that great in the rain, these Falken's are awesome in the rain, and very quiet, also great grip in the dry.

Personally I would only considder Conti Premium Contact 6 or the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 with a slight preference for the Conti. If I had an Abarth with 200bhp and winter wheels I would even get a tire that's more sport orientated like the Pilot Sport 4s.

Both those tires Michelin/Conti are noisy tires IMHO with 71/72 dB, the Falken is 67 dB.
Falken are quality Japanese tires, and very underestimated performance wise.
