    Default Ferrari F8 Wheelspin

    Absolutely loving my F8, but my goodness, the wheel spin! Is this normal in a Ferrari? I don’t believe for one second I could get close to the official 0-62 time as the moment I plant it in first or second it spins, even when it got to around 27c the other week. I don’t remember wheelspin on the mclaren like this. (It’s on P Zeros)

    Pirelli tyres are just complete and utter total *****. I have never driven anything on pirelli's that showed sufficient grip. I have had front wheel drive/rear wheel drive/4WD with factory fit Pirellis, and got rid of them long before I wore them out.

    Not sure if you can get them in a suitable size but Michellin Pilots Supersports are very good. On my 430 it went from shopping trolley handling, to go cart with blue tack tyres when I ditched the Pirelli ****ster tyres, and put Michelins on the car.

    I havnt driven an F8 but the nanny electronics should limit or stop the wheelspin ........ as long as the tyres have some grip

    Make sure you buy the properly homologated Michelinís for the car.

    Not just the correct size.

    Your local dealership should be able to source them at a good price.
