Yes, mine was set way too high as well (dealer should set them correctly for delivery, but they messed up) . The pressure specs are actually on the driver door jam, take a look at yours, it may vary some depends on the wheel size as well, I believe spec is 33/35 cold pressure.My Ti shows 3 tires at 55 lbs and one at 48 lbs... Seems the owners manual is recommending mid 30s? Am I reading the owner's manual correctly on the mid 30s? If so, my dealer survey to Alfa USA just went down a few notches..
Mine was originally set to 50lbs all around. The dealers must be lining us up for the first tire replacement in about 4-6k miles. It's like a dentist giving out Milk Duds to neighborhood kids on Halloween!
This is clearly a systematic issue, mine was around 55+ all around, and several other in US commented as well, so I think they are factory overinflated for shipment and supposed to be reset upon landing here. I told the dealer about it,but no response or apology offered. Really stupid stuff from Alfa USA dealers.So, bought my Guilia TI Q4 2 days ago. First real day of driving it was yesterday, very excited. The ride was a bit jerky and harsher than the Guilia I had test driven. Going down a freeway which was pothole free, no issues there...getting off a ramp at 30 MPH and back left wheel starts to rattle. I never had run flat tires (these are the 18" ones, I opted for a smoother riding experience) so after the initial rattling I heard nothing and the car was driving "smoothly." Pressure monitor pops up and says the back left tire is underinflated but what was more interesting was the other three tires were at 64.7 psi.
Car was towed and it's now at the dealership, tow truck came around 11pm last night as I was stranded in a part of New Jersey I hadn't been before. That was a fun experience, not even 100 miles in. Not sure how I should approach the dealership about this, the negligence cost me missing an entire meeting and really the entire day.
I would think the tire blew out because of the high psi but obviously I really don't have an idea, maybe there was a nail on the road? Who knows. Everyone, just be careful to check your psi before you leave the dealership with your car, I wish I had seen this thread earlier.
I understand many Spiders have been delivered with high tire pressure, so cars come this way from both ends of the earth. I was going through the screens with the salesperson as part of the delivery process and saw my car's pressure was in the 50s. He summoned the tech, who bled them as if he had done some many times previously. I'm not terribly concerned about it, because my car was built in March. However, I wonder about the condition of the tires on cars (yes, there are some) that have sat around for a while.Wow that sucks! Thankfully the dealer sat with me and gave me the 101 on the car which included the tire pressure section on the screen. Who the heck pumps tires to nearly 60psi! shocking
