Ferrari Models See Tires Recalled

Pirelli Tire North America has recalled some 19-inch P Zero Corsa tires that are fitted to two Ferrari models.

The tires size 285/35ZR19 were manufactured between May 2007 and July 2009, and were OE on the Ferrari 430 Scuderia and 430 Scuderia Spider 16M. Owners of the cars have been contacted to explain that if they have rear tires marked with the "XB" identification mark, they may need to be replaced at their nearest Ferrari service centers.

Pirelli said the tires will be replaced at no charge, and that the recall was a preventative measure only.

hmmm

interesting, and also misleading....

the picture in the report is a Corsa "Race" tyre. The cars come with Corsa "system" tyres.... Which looks kinda similar, almost the same in fact (;0) but has more grooves.

did some research on this today...

it's a sustained high speed tyre problem... so, for legal road use it's not a problem.

But stand by for more on this soon.
