I think it is only that they are not as capable as the System Asimmetricos. I've heard people pan the Rosso as "rubbish" tyres (a purely subjective view, obviously) while I have nothing but praise for the System Asimmetrico (better than the Potenza S01 and the Eagle F1s I had previously).nickejmartin said:I'm intrigued - what is the problem with the Pzero Rossos. I had no option when I purchased my Speedlines Turinis from Ralliart as they came with the Zeros - surely if they are that bad they wouldn't be fitted as standard on 18s.
I did a bit of checking and overall consensus is that for your average non track day driver like me, the rossos are about average and if anything better all rounder than the Yokos.
My factory fitted Potenzas 050A have 4.500 km (2.800 miles) on them [of which 1.000 miles of easy run-in driving] and have been rotated front to rear for a two times already and seem to come to the end of their life Very even wear, almost no difference outside-inside, but just almost no thread left. I guess they will need replacement at 5.000 miles. OK, almost every mile of this car after run-in has been on the limit but hey - new tyres every 4.000 miles...Digger Dog said:My Potenzas have only lasted 11000 miles, the fronts slightly less than the rear. Does anyone know the life of the MPS2 on a 260?
