    It was really interesting having the tyres fitted at the Pirelli Performance Centre in Burton, the summary is itís a fantastic place, highly recommended! Gareth was the chap I was dealing with and he was superb.

    They have some clever tech I have not seen before where as they drive into the workshop they scan your tyre tread to give an accurate level of tread depth on your tyres.
    This was my resultsÖ..

    Interestingly although my geometry was a little out, and I have the data sheet from that, they said that the tyre wear was reasonably even for a car if the this type so they didnít recommend making any adjustments.

    The whole process was professional, technically competent and all at a competitive price (even against mail order fit yourself type places like Camskill). A tangible benefit of being a member of the Ferrari Owners Club, giving that deal of £100 cashback with 4 tyres. Total cost was £979, reducing to £879 when taking into account the £100 pre paid fuel card they send you.

    Regarding Adrianís question on the P-Zeroís, Iíve only ever run that tyre on this car, and they feel great. I drive with confidence/commitment(!) and I have no complaints. I also run it all year round and that too has been ok, although I would love to try a set of winters when itís cold. The tyre wear was ok too, 30k miles done on the fronts and 15k miles done on the back. Iím sure many people will and do swear by the Michelin Pilot Sport 4ís, not tried them, Iím sure they are good too, but I do have confidence in the OEM chassis signed off tyre. Tyre development programmes for manufacturers are huge sign off events, tyres are not chosen lightly and experts far more experienced and talented than I make the decisions.

    All in all, a very rewarding visit to the Pirelli place, and on my Ďniceí cars I wonít be going anywhere else in the future.
