The first set of tires that I got from Tire Rack was the Pirelli P Zero Nero M+S. At the time they were one of the top Ultra High Performance All-Season tires available. Pirelli's track record over the past decade has been extremely impressive in this category.
They logged three first place finishes in our comparison testing back in 2003, 2004 and 2007 before being eclipsed by newer tires from their competitors. The Nero M+S was then replaced by the P Zero Nero All Season, which looks very similar but was updated for improved traction in bad weather conditions. The Nero All Season finished first during the 2009 and 2010 testing season. In our latest tests, the tire was replaced by the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position as the top performer in its category, however the P Zero Nero All Season put in a very solid second place showing.
In many sizes the P Zero Nero All Season undercuts the price of competitors from other leading brands while offering world-class performance. If you need a tire that offers excellent wet and dry traction along with the ability to handle light snow, make sure to give this Pirelli tire a look. Don't just take my word for it, see what a few of our customers are saying about their experience with the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season:
"Great year-round tire. Handles and performs great in dry weather and better than average in rain." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2011 Ford Mustang GT Coupe
"They grip well in wet and dry and never lose traction. They don't make a peep of noise when thrown around an off ramp at highway speed. They are quiet and comfortable for daily driving. They've been the best performing all-season tire I've used and have also lasted the longest." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2005 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro Ultra Sport Package
