to be honest, $49 a tire? I am not going to put them on any of my cars!

That ^^^ - plus, isn't 205/45-17 a bit tall? I don't know what the Abarth comes with as stock, but that is 1.3" taller than stock on the Sport.

The 17" Abarths come with 205/40R 17 shoes.

I only found another forum with a short review. They said they were good. Give them a try.... I dunno if I would put 50 dollar tires on though at the same time ha

there is no advertised utqg. they may be fine tires but how long will they last? it doesn't pay to get a tire that doesn't last because you double up on installation and shipping costs. then again utqg is almost meaningless. it's something the manufacturer gets to advertise. my yokohoma tires on my dart with a utqg of 560 aren't holding up as well as my kumho tires on the same car with a utqg of 480...


cheap tires might be a good idea for a car that doesn't get a lot of seat time or in a jam. but in the long run it doesn't always pay because at $10 a tire in shipping and $12-$30 per tire installation we are talking other fees that add up to 45-80% the cost of those tires so buying tires twice at half cost might add up to 50% more money than buying good tires once. the next part is to see if you can get a tire with a high treadwear rating that doesn't cost triple or more what those cost.
