#$^*@%$&*@ foreign cars!
I have a friend who just bought an Alfa Romeo 4door something-or-other. He is using it as a family car. He needs new tires but was told he MUST use V-series performance tires or the car's electronics will all be thrown out of whack. He would prefer not to spend $700 or $800 for a set of tires that should cost $300.
Does anyone out there know if he was being fed a line? How could the car possibly sense V-series tires from any other series of the same diameter?
