We only have about 2000 miles on these tires but they are a huge improvement over the previous Continental Extreme contact DWS. The biggest improvement is the decrease in road noise. The Mazda 3 is a loud car on the highway, I believe, due to a lack of sound deadening but these new Pirelli tires make the it far better than before. The traction in the dry is great and we have yet to test them in snow. Stand by for an update., but very happy so far and we will be putting these tires on the Subaru Outback too!

Replaced the oem Michelins at 44,000 miles. I put on the Continental Extreme ContactDWS tires which were good, but only lasted 35,000 miles and were rotated every 7,000 miles and became loud after 30,000 miles. I now have the Pirelli's and they are far superior to the Continentals and Michelins. We had a bad winter with a lot of snow and some ice, best tire I have ever had for an all season tire, I am thrilled. I expect them to last better than the Continentals. These tires are very quiet so far and handling is fine, these are not for racers, but these are the best commuter tires I have owned. I have had 90 cars in my lifetime, and these tires truly impress me. I have not seen any fuel economy benefit relative to the other tires I have had on this car, but the car now has some miles and age to it. Strongly recommend these tires.

Most reviews of the P Zero tire seem to come from owners of sporty cars and from residents of northern states (why? this tire is not for winter driving!). Here in Florida, on our VW Tiguan we get the performance and traction we expect, though wet surfaces do slightly challenge this tire. At 48K miles I estimate we still have 10K left on the tread. Overall, a tire that lives up to our expectations of a summer tire.

These tires are excellent for winter-rated rubber on dry and wet roads, with progressive and predictable traction loss as you approach their limit while cornering. They are plenty capable of propelling my Subaru Legacy 2.5GT through over a foot of snow, although they are obviously aided by the AWD system's viscous limited slip differentials in this task. At speed, they maintain traction and stability through slush and shallow snow on the road.

On light snow and ice, they brake well but not as well as a fully dedicated snow/winter tire. This is to be expected, however, as these are designed for performance cars in areas with milder winters, where snows happens but infrequently. The trade off is far superior dry and wet traction than fully dedicated winter tires, with handling and braking comparable to some summer tires. Steering response compared to a summer tire is noticeably slower, due to the softer winter rubber compound.

Regardless, these will allow you to enjoy your car throughout the winter months without sacrificing much of the handling, braking, and cornering enjoyed on summer tires during the rest of the year. I highly recommend them, and they are a great deal for the price.

Great Ride, Almost No Noise, I love Michelin Tires and run them on all my equipment. Took very little weight to balance. I went from Pirelli Scorpion All Weather O.E.M. tire to the Michelin X-ice Winter ties and actually gained 1.5 MPG, going from 25 to 26.5MPG. I thought the traction was great but this is the first time I have put winter tires on a car so I have nothing to compare them to.

I live in San Diego County in SoCal, but work in the far east county area, so have a commute that takes me from SD metro area to rural work location on a paved county road @ 3100" elevation. I get there via freeway to county road. This tire came as OEM with vehicle & I expect I will get 35,000 out of them before they have to be replaced (with the same tire). County road I drive on is winding & old asphalt (course, but not rough or broken), so these tires have gotten a workout. Seem to still be as quiet now as when I first got vehicle new. I get about 30 MPH average fuel economy on a car that has a 300 HP six-cyl engine with twin-turbos. I attribute a good portion of that to these tires (better than US EPA specs for fuel economy on this model). Car has been from West Coast to DC via Atlanta & back via Fla Gulf Coast - no problems at all in any conditions encountered. Went conservative on snow performance since I've only had limited experience with that (we do get some snow where I work in SD - I know, we're not supposed to get snow in San Diego). Wet & dry performance are exceptional. They have held grip in circumstance when I would have expected they would let go (hard braking). Can't say enough about this tire.

Nice quiet tire that has good road feel and has performed well above average in snow. Would even say snow traction performance is better than the Conti extremecontact DWS tires they replaced on this car. Must be due to the all the tread pattern siping and silica compound keeping tire soft at cold temps. Tread wear has been excellent as well. Looking to replace the current tires on my other vehicle with these when they come due.

These were a replacement for OE Pirelli P6's that lasted only 28k miles. Definitely a big improvement over OE tires. Driving at all speeds is now eerily quiet. Traction and handling in snow is excellent. We have Michelin & Yokohama on other cars and would highly recommend these over either without reservation. I don't usually write product reviews - but in this case I am too impressed not to.

I bought these tires a month ago to replace tires damaged by road debris. These are by FAR the best tires I've had on this car, including OEM Potenzas, Kumho Solus KH16, two sets of General Altimax HP. The General's were pretty good, but wore fast and did not corner/brake on snow well. These Pirelli's are amazing. The car is noticeably quieter and rides smoother -- it's like a new car. We have had a snowy winter so far in CT so I have had many chances to test these on snow and ice. I have had snow tires on other cars that didn't perform this well. Truly impressive. Yesterday I drove up the steep hill to my house on 8 inches of unplowed, unsalted snow without so much as a slip. A Subie and these tires is unstoppable! Very, very happy with this purchase... would buy again in a heartbeat.

 

Pirelli's New Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 by Neal O'Neal

The newest edition to Pirelli's Grand Touring All Season line-up is their Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. Pirelli designed the tire for drivers of touring and luxury cars that seek predictable handling, a comfortable ride and all-season traction. Their low oil and high silica tread compound helps enhance wet and all-season traction throughout the life of the tire. An Ecolmpact icon identifies the tire as a low rolling resistance option, as well as environmentally friendly.

Molded into an asymmetrical tread design, the P7 All Season Plus drives quietly and can be rotated easily. Its outboard shoulder helps promote crisp steering response without the noise. The four circumferential grooves help evacuate water quickly to increase wet traction and reduce hydroplaning. Low rolling resistance is achieved by a progressively flexible sidewall to cut down on deformation and unnecessary dispersal of energy, thereby reducing rolling resistance.

Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about their experience with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus:

"This tire has amazed me since it was installed. Immediately, I noticed a difference in decreased road noise and increased ride comfort. It has been a great tire while driving in heavy rain and when taking corners.Thank you, Pirelli!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited

"Fantastic tire. These tires are fantastic on wet roads. On dry roads, the response is great and the road noise is minimal. 100% recommend!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Mazda MAZDA6 5-Door i Touring

I have had these tires twice, once on a Subaru and now I put them on a JCW Mini Coupe. The dealer ordered them from Tire Rack for me and put them on before I picked up my new car. It was December in Colorado.

I absolutely love these tires. I have used the Blizzaks and Michelins on other vehicles and this is my favorite. The primary thing I like is that the snow traction is terrific but what makes it exceptional is the dry traction. In this season I have used the tire on every type of snow and ice possible in Colorado. Outside of slush which no tire does well the tire is excellent. I will also tell you that if you drive a stiff suspension sports car you will like the ride with the non runflats. I believe that I could drive this tire competently in virtually all conditions short of track work.

With a front wheel drive and these tires you can drive with confidence. I went out to unplowed lots and put the tires to the limits, even turning off traction controls. I would purposely cut hard, throw up some rooster takls and try to slide and recover. It was easy.

I strongly and confidently recommend these tires to my fellow enthusiasts.

I purchased these tires for my mother’s car mostly with winter weather driving being my main concern, as I tend to use it for commuting to work in snowy bad weather. This car, with the right tires, is a TANK in the snow. It’ll go and stop in anything! After prior bad experience with Good Year tires, I knew I wanted a quality tire from Pirelli or Michelin, so after a lot of research on TR I settled on these tires and was delighted to get a rebate at the time. As for the tires, they’re great. I just had this car in some serious snow storms here in NJ this winter and I commute to Morristown through the Great Swamp, which has tight turns with no shoulder and steep hills and the tires performed great. The one snow day it took me 1.5 hrs to go less than 2 miles in the severely unprepared roads and saw at least 10 accidents, with SUVs hitting snow ploughs, cars in ditches, 5 cars daisy chain crashed together, mult wrecked cars on flat beds going past me, SUVs just sliding down hills with the wheels turned full lock, and tractor trailers just parked on main roads, yet this car with these tires just kept on going with no drama. When you experience driving like this, you take your tires very serious. I plan on getting rid of the worn out POS Good Year Integrity tires on my father’s other Buick with these very same tires. They’re that good, the price isn’t too bad, they ride nice, and the mileage life is high. When it comes to tires, it’s your life, your insurance rates, and the headache of a car accident. Don’t get cheap!

Recently purchased these tires to replace the factory Michelen tires. I have noticed an immediate reduction in road noise with these tires, and the comfort over pot marked roads has been a great improvement. Today, in Columbus Ohio (2-5-14) we received 6" of snow with a layer of ice over top of it over night. The tires handled it with an amazing amount of ease. Almost zero wheel spin while driving back roads over ice covered roads from the plows, as well as areas the plow missed and my car became the plow. Highway driving over somewhat plowed roads meant lane changes over slush, ice and snow at 30 - 40 mph and I had no issues. Was passing SUV after SUV this morning. Only incident I have had was I hit a rather large pot hole and blew the tire out. I do not think that the tire itself had anything to do with it, as much as it was in regards to the road conditions and the tire size is a low profile tire and they just can't handle impact like that. I would recommend this tire to anyone. I have had Goodyears, Michelen's , etc before and this has been my most remarkable tire to date.

 

Looking for Quiet Tires? Check Out My Top Three Picks!

Tuesday, January 28, 2014 by Gary Stanley

When shopping for tires, most drivers place a good deal of emphasis on quietness. No one wants to listen to a loud tire on a long trip or have to shout at their passengers to have a conversation. Tire noise can be more than just an annoyance, it can also mask important sounds that affect vehicle performance, maintenance and safety.  

For most drivers, the quietest tires are found in the Passenger All-Season, Standard Touring All-Season and Grand Touring All-Season performance categories.  

Goodyear Assurance ComforTred
Goodyear Assurance
ComforTred
Michelin Defender

Defender
Michelin Primacy MXV4

MXV4


For Passenger All-Season tires, the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred and Michelin Energy Saver A/S both received top ratings for noise comfort. While the Goodyear is not available in many sizes, the Michelin is made in quite a few popular fitments ranging from compact cars to crossover vehicles.  

In the Standard Touring All-Season category, the Michelin Defender has consistently received high praise from our customers in regards to its smooth and quiet ride. It's also designed to deliver extra long wear and all-season traction in dry, wet and wintry conditions, even in light snow. 

If you're driving a vehicle that uses tires with higher speed ratings, check out the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus and Michelin Primacy MXV4. The P7 All Season Plus is a relative newcomer with few miles reported in our surveys, but initial feedback has been outstanding. Developed to be environmentally friendly, Pirelli's EcoImpact icons confirm the tire's contribution to the environment with regards to energy efficiency, clean air, low noise and long wear. Michelin's Primacy MXV4 offers a quiet, comfortable ride, long treadlife, responsive handling and all-season traction. You can learn about my personal experience with this Michelin tire by reading "Michelin Primacy MXV4 Tires Installed on My Crossover."

great tires - you can corner the car at high speeds, great stability, great for agressive and non-agressive driving alike. negatives include lot's of road noise and impossible noise levels once worn down to the 2/32. mine got worn down after 12 months and 6000 miles. once worn they lose their grip like nobody's business. don't buy this unless you are acustomed to changing your tires with your oil change.

I've never really been a fan of the asymmetrical tread designs, so was a bit nervous about getting these tires. I have tried many tires on my Mercedes R350 and these Firestones are at least as good as the Michelin Latitude Tour HP and better than the Continental 4X4 Contact. The ride they give is very solid but smooth. Handling is excellent, given the large size of the car. Best of all, these Firestones are FAR less expensive than Michelins or Conitnentals. If you have a luxury crossover SUV don't hesitate to try these tires.

My car eats tires in 30,000 miles (been through Conti, Michelin and Pirellis). I'll report back about how these wear over time.

I've owned a lot of cars and a lot of different tires: Michelin, Dunlop, Continental, Pirelli, Semperit, Bridgestone, Falken, Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Firestone, Uniroyal. The only tires I've ever owned that were a close match to these were a set of Semperit M-401's I owned back in the late 70's. I put these tires on my front drive Volvo S60. I drive fairly hard and I have yet to get a squeal out of these on a curve on dry pavement. The car is like it's on rails. Very solid on wet roads where they feel almost as secure as on dry pavement. I've experienced no indication of hydroplaning. They will lose traction a bit when starting up quickly on wet pavement, but squeal almost like they would on dry pavement when doing so. We've been having a bit of a wild winter here in the mid-atlantic and I've gotten caught out in some fairly substantial snow several times over the past few weeks. A couple of times I've had to stop on steep hills behind other cars that have gotten stuck. In every case I've been able to wait for traffic to clear and drive right around the stuck car(s) with little effort, at times having to use the uncleared shoulder to get through. They aren't snow tires, but they're darned close. These replaced a set of Michelins and I've seen no noticeable change in fuel economy, but the car noticeably rides and handles better. Compared to the Michelins they replaced these tires seem to ride more smoothly over small imperfections, but slighty more harshly over large bumps and potholes. They are very quiet. I'm not able to rate tread life as I've only had them for a couple of thousand miles, but I am so impressed that I wanted to get this review out on the web for the benefit of others. Highly recommended.

have a 2012 fiat sport equipped it with this tire now. Really impressed with the tires. Pittsburgh driving and its been below freezing with a few inches and have had total satisfaction.
Grew up in NY and have never had a 4x4 for snow, all you need is good tires.
Spend the $$ and make yourself safe.
Additional note: all I see here is Subaru's in ditches with all-season tires on them.
The tires make the car!
