Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season

I like the traction I get in rain. On dry conditions they're sticky and you can tell the grip they have if needed to quickly turn or swerve. They're a firm ride, not soft. You get a reasonable level of feedback from the road.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Corsa System

I have had 6,000 miles on both front and rear with these tires including 5 track days, about 3 hours each day of track time. I am replacing the rear only. The front have a lot of miles left. I have tried Michelin and Conti on Porsche and this is the best. I have also tracked twice at Sebring in the rain. And while there was not standing water as they clear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Bought this tire to improve cornering while racing in the Big Bend Open Road Race. The OEM Pirelli P Zero Neros were occasionally scary in this regard.WOW. Super Sports exhibited amazing lateral traction, while showing slightly less tracking on center. Slightly harsher ride, noisier, but it is now obvious that the tire outperforms the suspension. More shock...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Based on Tire Rack reviews etc. I purchased these tires to replace the original P Zero's. Hard to believe the same company can produce such different tires, nevermind that Audi felt the need to put P Zero's on a car like this. The P7's are great. The ride is smooth, quiet, controlled and the mileage at 32 mpg on the highway is outstanding. Two thumbs up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

This is one of the oem tires for this ML63 AMG...I've gone through 3 sets in 47000 kms including 2 winters with winter tires so needless to say very poor durability. I even had a meeting with the local Pirelli rep who acknowledged the tire is designed for performance (which means poor durability) but he wouldn't come out and say.With my asking nicely Pirelli...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I replaced the original Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tires after about 30,000 miles. They were noisy and very easy to turn over off the line. Never had any issues with dry traction or grip in the corners but wet driving FORCED me to slow down. As they accumulated miles they remained predictable and consistent but did get much louder as they got closer to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Awesome in the wet, much better hydroplane resistant than Pirelli P-Zeros that were 20 mm skinnier. Ultimate grip is about the same as P-Zeros. Go up a performance category or to Pilot Super Sports if you want more grip. Treadwear on the highway seems to be pretty good. At current wear rate, I am expecting to get 40,000 out of them with no track use and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

I'm on my third set of the Hancook Ventus V12 evos. Size 225/45/17 on Enki Racing RP-F1 wheels. Car Fwd Audi TT Mk 1 w/uprated HP.Car came with Nexus all weather tires. Comfortable, quiet, adequate. At change time, went to Pirelli P Zero Rosso hi-perf summer tires. Significant positive difference. Even torque steer went up. So did wear! Didn't make it until...  Read More

Unfortunately, it has been out of stock in many sizes this summer. So what do you do if the Super Sport has an indefinite backorder in your size? It depends on why you wanted...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season

Lasted much longer that I expected, by far! Excellent on snow and in bad weather conditions in general. My car being an all wheel drive may contributed to that. Very good all around high performance tire. Very satisfied with these tires and Pirelli in general.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

OEM Tires on my 2013 Mustang with Track Pack. 3.73 rear end with 420hp. I drive 70 miles round trip per day. 2/3 highway. I only expected to get 20k miles out of the tires based on reviews, and am very pleased that I have 29k on them and a few more to go. I drive hard - acceleration, braking, and cornering, but if you don't light them up, they will hold up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

You'll see 75,000 above and go huh? Well, that's because I bought one set, drove 40,000 miles on them, then purchased another set. I've driven my Camaro across the country from Washington, DC to Seattle, from DC into Canada, from DC to Maine, as well as DC to down south. From tackling the streets of Washington, DC, Boston, New York City, Chicago, Seattle,...  Read More

Great tire. It is very predictable with great transitional characteristics. Fantastic in the dry and surprisingly good in the wet.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season

OEM tire on vehicle from manufacturer. Tire is very soft and wears quickly. Unbeatable traction in dry, warm conditions, poor ratings in snow and ice,however could be the fact vehicle is rear wheel drive.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 (W-Speed Rated)

Quiet, at least for now, compared to the P Zero Neros that were OE on the car. Dry handling is comparable to that of the Pirellis, wet and light snow traction is decent but certainly not exceptional. Ride comfort on the harsh side, but again tolerable. Have not driven in deep snow yet so can't comment.Overall satisfied, particularly considering the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Rosso

This is the best way to get new tires on your car. The price was unbeatable. I ordered 4 new ones online. TireRack shipped them directly to my local NTB and I simply went there to have them installed. Mercedes dealer did not have these in stock so I was looking for them online. So glad I found TireRack.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

Let me start by saying that the Mustang GT should have never been sold with 235's on it. I upgraded the factory 235-50ZR18 P Zero Nero's to the Sumitomo HTR Z II in a 255-45ZR18. The upgrade to the 255 Sumitomo makes the car so much more enjoyable to drive. I've only put 100 miles on them so far, but the difference in traction is phenomenal.My car is lightly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

These replaced stock Hankook Optimo 431s on an '11 Sonata 2.0T. Those tires worked well in dry traction but were wearing unevenly. With these Pirellis, I'm noticing slightly sharper steering response and feel more comfortable with handling on swooping sections of Southern California freeways as compared to the 431s. But I only have a couple of hundred miles...  Read More
