Initial Review, 2,000 Miles on Tires
In Italy only S001 is available and not S04PP. My car has and ECU mapping and a TarOx B33 10 pots calipers and 335mm discs system on front and 315mm discs on rear. With Carbon Lorraine RC8 pads on front and RC6 on rear. With such a braking setup and 175Bhp under the bonnet with loads of torque, it is easy to detect tires' performances on such a light car. Former tires were the Pirelli PZero Rosso, always 225/40 ZR 18 92Y XL. Pressure was 2.5bar front and 2.4 rear for both brands. The PZero ended their bed in period after 2000km and the Bridgestone are still to bed in at the rear. Makes sense given the higher treadwear index of Bridge tires.
