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

I drive mostly on highways and I've been through several brands of tires with not much luck for one reason or another. I decided to try this tire based on reviews and a 700 tread ware life. These tire were installed 20000 miles ago and have not had to balance again, silky smooth and very little noise. The best tires I've ever owned. I do not drive much in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I bought these shortly after buying my jeep used back in 2010. Since then i've gone offroading several times and these tires do great considering how quiet they are on-road. Where these tires fall short is snow traction and wear. For some reason the outer part of the tread is made almost half the depth of the inner part so after 20k miles my tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

The OEM tires had a severe hydroplane and wet traction problem so I looked for a wedge design similar to some Pirelli tires I used in Ireland. Found these and my fear of driving in wet weather disappeared. Agree that they are noisy but safety trumps noise any day. They proved to provide excellent traction in our upstate New York winters. Just purchased...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion STR

I am in Missouri, so I don't get too much snow. The OEM Bridgestones were replaced with these Pirellis, and during a recent storm with a layer of ice followed by 8+ inches of snow, the difference was like night and day. The only way the vehicle broke loose was when I tried to force it with excessive acceleration. In all other regards, the tires are a slight...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am not new to Michelin tires, so this was the obvious choice when I was shopping for winter tires. Having said that, I considered Blizzaks and Continentals before my purchase, but the Tire Rack and Consumer Reports reviews for the X-Ice made my decision much easier. Two seasons on these tires, and negligible wear thus far. They handle well for a winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

I live in South Florida (stay out of snow country) but the tires haven't blown me away but have performed acceptably so far. I don't expect to get much more than 5-6000 more miles before replacing them. I am waiting for Tirerack to test the new comparable tires first. I haven't eliminated these from my list of replacements.   Read More

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

I am writing this review as I'm purchasing my second set of P Neros from Tire Rack. First of all, there should be a category above Spirited for the type of driver I am. To make matters worse for my tires, I live in the Appalachian mountains so curvy roads with inconsistent pavement mean my tires don't last long. The hard cornering & braking that mountain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion UHP Sport A/S

I purchased this tire over a year ago to replace some 970AS Pole Positions. (worst tire in snow ever made even light snow). I am a machinist by trade and have made substantial modifications on the mostly stock EVO (except intake, exhaust, cam and programming). Even though I could burn these tires off in a matter of minutes they have performed well for the...  Read More

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

I am very particular about my tires. Here is why and this is my story. I have driven many types of vehicles with many different makes of tires. The difference between a good and bad tire can be the difference between life or death!! That said, everyone has near misses with the crazies on the road! No one is perfect but, you get what you pay for. When I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Ditch the OEM run-flat tires! The Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus tires are much smoother, ride quieter and provide a greater sense of road feel and manners than the OEM Bridestone run-flats, which were a rougher ride and wore out after less than 26,000 miles. Why BMW equips their cars w run-flats is a mystery to me since the run-flats ride is rougher, tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

I own these tires because they're actually the only tires available for the OEM 17 rims than came on my 2007 Porsche Cayman. There are literally no other options. Used to put Contis on, but can't even get those anymore. I've had them for a few winters now. I live in downtown Toronto and we get a mix of light and heavy snow. Some winters we just get really...  Read More

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

12/14/13 - I just picked up my car, and with several inches of snow last night and snowing this morning, I was able to test these new tires in wet, slush, light snow, and thick snow on my drive home. These tires are unbelievablely great!!! I tested the tires from 40mph to a stop. In wet and slush conditions, I was not able to activate my ABS no matter how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

Had a little wheelspin getting up a hill on solid ice, but otherwise very impressed with handling in snow at temps below 15 deg F. Confidence inspiring, and unless really looking to drive anywhere near the car's limits, would even consider leaving them on year-round depending on tread wear, but too soon to comment on that.   Read More

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

Bought a set of these P7s to replace the notoriously noisy Turanza EL400-02's that came on my used 2012 Mazda 3. The reduction in noise level on the highway was stunning and that alone was enough to be worth the cost. Then I took them for a spirited drive on my favorite hilly road nearby where they were smooth, stable, and predictable. And just last night I...  Read More

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

Just replaced the OEM Firestone FR710 tires after approx 60K miles. The OEM's were downright dangerous in any standing water at any speed > 50mph but they were quiet and provided good gas mileage. In snow, forget it, I just tried to avoid driving. Being an old guy I'm just interested in safety, comfort/quiet and good gas mileage. The only spirited driving I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

This tire is a significant upgrade over the Hankook OE tire. The tread wear has been acceptable. The difference in ride quality between this tire and the OE tire is negligible, though hit does seem to have reduced road noise. Driving in snow is acceptable, but that may be due to the AWD in our automobile.   Read More

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

I wanted to write this review as I didn't see any other reviews of this tire with a large wagon like my Volvo V70. I live in an area with lots of sweeping curves and hills, never snows. These P7 all season's are exactly the tire I was hoping for...quiet & smooth while still providing excellent grip in both rain & dry. (I bought the car with Bridgestone...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Only after 1600 miles, I noticed how much quieter these tires were compared to the OEM Pirellis. We just had a light snowfall and these tires performed exactly as I had anticipated. I tried to spin all four tires in the snow, but couldn't. One thing I have not liked about continentals are their softer sidewalls. I am thinking these tires seem to flex more...  Read More

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

Purchased these tires(from a local dealer) based on reviews as a replacement for Michelin MXV4. These are tough tires to properly road force balance. Ride is a bit jittery and after two attempts at balancing (values of 13 lbs. on all four tires) the ride is still disappointing. Road noise is great but will not know snow handling characteristics until this...  Read More
