Just purchased Michelin MXM4 for my Ti. Performing very nicely. Have the run flats purchased through TireRack.

Do you have complaint with the Pirellis, or just switching it up for giggles?

I've got Potenza RE-11. tires are awesome but they are discontinued so it's not an option.
many members like Firehawk Indy 500 which is sold as Potenza RE-003 overseas
another favorite is Pilot 4s or SS.
Potenza S-04 is not a bad option either for price.
newer Potenza S-001 or S-007 are bit too expensive.

what are you trying to achieve?
do you have staggered setup?

Current:
'18 Giulia Ti-Sport Q4
Trofeo White / Red
Ti-Leather, Ti-Performance, Driver Static, Driver Dynamic, HK, 3D Navi, Dual-Pane Sunroof

Potenza RE-11 245/40/19

What is your setup?

I have 2 summers on the Indy Firehawk 500's. Stoopid good in the dry and cheap, too. Not too good in the wet.

Did General (Contis, actually) G-Max AS through the anti-summer... very happy.

Will probably go G-Max RS in 245/35s, which actually weigh 2#s less than the Firehawks in 225. These are the new "budget Conti ExtremeContacts" and getting accolades.

'Hawks are soooo **** cheap at sub $500 a set, and CO is a dry summer... use em like Kleenex. Tempting to reload. Skidpad > 1.02g is unbelievable (yet actually for real) and on a Q4 they are stupendous in the twisties.

Don't know about Q2 or Staggered tho. Save the Pilots for the QVs. plenty of great rubber at 60 cents on the dollar for my mere mortal Ti Q4.

Just avoid runflats unless you are at end of lease return time. Thankyou chaadster for the reminder to have a fixflat option absent a spare. I carry a $35 Slime and 12v pump kit that will fix a simple flat/puncture. Bigger problem and I'm calling roadside assistance, no doubt. Fits in the void where the tow ring and tools live.


Hope to help,

Cool. Good reccos depend, though, on want you need and want.

The Michelin Primacy MXM4 runflats (look for ZP designation) are a good all-season alternative.

Remember that the Giulia has no spare nor any accommodation for a flat tire episode at all, her than the runflat tires, so either stick with the feature or be prepared to deal with the possible consequences of dealing with a flat on conventional rubber.

Additionally, runflats offer better wheel protection than conventional rubber, so if you’re somewhere where the roads are poor condition and potholes are a real part of the road hazards, runflats can save you from expensive wheel damage. Particularly if you’re on the 19”s, the extra protection is nice.

Bridgestone Potenza RE050A runflats are another good AS option, and can be had in the wider 235 35 R19 size if you want to fit a wider tire. These get factory spec’d on a lot of the high performance German cars, like AMG S55 and BMW 5 series. The Ferrari California sports Brigestone runflats, too, BTW.

Anyway, pay close attention to designations, because the tire world is full of variants and little info, so finding and getting what you want can be tricky, pricing can vary widely within the same model based on the spec (esp. sizing). Using the example earlier, not all Primacy MXM4 are runflat, just the MXM4 ZP.

Where do you live? Do you want high performance or all-season? I'd stay away from the runflats. No need for them. Personally, I'd go with Michelins, depending on what you want. Staggered? 19X8, 19X9 or 19x8 all the way around?

I live in SD with a Q4 and have Michelin PS4's. Amazing tire. That would be extreme high performance.

I am running Michelin PS A/S 3+ non-ZP tires on my 19" sport Q4 and am very happy with them. I chose all-season tires because freezing temperatures happen even mid-summer along my regular route. I put a flat fix kit in the hole in the Styrofoam under the trunk floor.
