recommend a brand other than Pirelli. 

What tyres are on your Lambo?

and would you buy Pirelli's ever again, or are you burned now?

I've seen many Pirellis with manufacturing faults, and heard of many more.... Yet, somehow, I still kind of like the idea of Italian tyres.... :scratchchin:

Damn those French.  :mad:

Now have Corsas on the LP - they are excellent.  I'd have Pirellis again.  Just bad luck this time.

ah ok...

the pic shows P zero rosso

you now have Corsa "system"? (fully treaded)

Or full "Corsa"? (semi slick with just "wavey" tread pattern?)

Fully treaded - same pattern as I had on my Gallardos.  They are a little softer than the Pzero rosso, ride and handle better but don't last quite as well.

 :thumbsup:

"system"

Soft compound, great on the road... but a bit loose and "tread block walky" on track.

If you want quiet ride, great grip AND reasonable durability... I'm afraid Michelin Pilot Sport (and/or cup) is the answer....

But yeah, stick with Pirelli... that way you get new tyres more often, and it (almost  :doh:) always feels great :thumbsup:

BTW... you need to twist your wheel centre caps, so that the bottom of the Lambo shield points to the valve.....
