About Alfa Romeo 159

The Alfa Romeo 159 (Type 939) is a compact executive car produced by the Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo between 2004 and 2011. It was introduced at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show, as a replacement for the 156. The 159 used the GM/Fiat Premium platform, shared with the Alfa Romeo Brera and Spider production cars, and with the Kamal and Visconti concept cars. Production commenced on 5 August 2004. The 159 placed third in the 2006 European Car of the Year awards. Production of the 159 ended in October 2011, and around 240,000 cars were built. It was expected that the car would be named the 157 or 158, but it was announced that it would be called the 159.

Premium tyres from companies such as Bridgestone and Pirelli offer the longest lifespan and a host of performance features including quieter running and superior braking. If a premium tyre is out of your price range then a mid-range tyre from a company such as Falken offers a good blend of performance and value for money. 

If you’re replacing the existing OEM tyres then you’ll need to decode the information from the tyre sidewalls. You can then input the information into the Protyre tyre search and make your choice from our selection of premium, mid-range and budget tyres. Then find your nearest Protyre garage and arrange an appointment with our qualified fitters to install your new tyres.
