Abarth Turismo Pirelli P-Zero Handling.
« on: August 12, 2021, 10:56:45 am »
To continue previous topics straight line/tramlining.. Bought a new Abarth Turismo Jan 2020 and I find that the steering takes concentration when going in a straight line due to the Pirellis following any road markings or surface dips. Being new when I bought it cuts out tracking problems and it has had its first service and no problems seen in suspension etc so only thing left are the tyres. I have made sure tyre pressures are correct and also raised them slightly but still same problem. Strangely enough I had the same problem with my motorbike ( Triumph 900 ) with my factory fitted Pirelli tyres so changed them to Continentals... now no problem , something to do with bias/tyre profile.
Any suggestions regarding tyre choice when I change them... soon !!

    Welcome biker55 :wave:

    I really would not rely on wheel alignment from factory :whistle:

    I hated the Pirellis that came from new on my Turismo, it had terrible tramlining, no grip in the cold. Struggled on for about 4000 miles until one day it tried to flick me off a completely straight (but uneven) piece of road! I changed them to Michelin PS4 and it totally transformed the car, cured the tramlining and made the car how it should be in my opinion.

    Thanks for that.. Tyres have now done about 7000 miles so will change in a few weeks as I will be going on a long trip soon and want decent tyres on the car before I go.

    Stick to the advised pressures, raising them slightly will only make matters worse with the Pirellis. Make sure you have an accurate pressure gauge and do not rely on the ones at a petrol station.

    Fit Michelins and that will transform it
