Recently test drove a Ghibli for about 1.5 hours. A great ride. Only issue was driving on a rain grooved freeway with concrete surface. The Pirelli tires are extremely noisy, checked the tire reviews and more than one review of the Pirelli tires stated so. I think I will go with the Continentals as they too are mounted on the Ghibli when delivered to dealers. Should be much quieter. On asphalt pavement there is no issue, could only hear the Maserati rumble, especially in sport mode. Has any one test driven a car with Continental tires ?
