Welcome Ciro! You Europeans can get diesels, but we can't in the US. :( My Dad always wanted a diesel. He couldn't afford a Mercedes and didn't trust the GMs (He was right!).

In Italy we don't have 2.4 TigerShark, but we have 1.4 MultiAir 140, 170hp.

Petrol costs too much, and all people buy Diesel.

European Diesel are Fiat.

European Citizen want buy Petrol engine, but costs too much.
Diesel: 1.55 € / liter
Petrol: 1.65 € / liter


P.S. Sorry for my English <img src="http://www.myjeepcompass.com/forums/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="" class="inlineimg" />

When I buy Compass, I had Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport 255 55 18.
The vehicle isn't soft.

In Italy we have a little way, more rotatory direction but the dynamic behavior of Compass is excellent, incredible excellent.

I bought Yokohama G015 for winter period, I test tyres about 30 km.
The tyre are soft, more soft. The lateral support is soft, when you run more 150 km/h (about 100miles) the Compass are bit unstable because the tyre are projected for other use, not sport use.

The city's holes are absorbed good than Bridgestone, G015 are best.

Loud Bridgestone and Loud Yokohama are same.


For sport use: Bridgestone
For all purpose: Yokohama

I not test tyre in off road scope

Yikes! You frighten me. :surprise:

I don't think I'd trust my Compass at 150km/h (100MPH) either, and not just because of the tires. A Jeep is no better at that speed than a sports car is in a blizzard. Neither the tires nor the vehicle are intended for that kind of use. Be careful out there! :angel:

The maximum speed for my Compass was 197km/h (122MPH)
My previous car was Alfa Romeo Giulietta, an sport car.

I think that the G015 tyres are very good for Jeep use
