Initial Review, 650 Miles on Tires
March 23, 2014

I previously owned two sets of 245/45ZR-20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires on this car so my review will be these 245/45R-20 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. F1 tires are very responsive and grippy on dry surface, but were very noisy, tread life is only lasts 17K miles, and have zero traction on light snow or ice. i was skeptical of P7s when doing search because they are fairly new and didnt have a lot of long-term reviews. Also, ratings seemed too good to be true, price is fairly high and treadlife was rated high. P7s make the car feel little heavy, little less responsive and not as grippy during dry high speed cornering, but P7s still perform incredibly considering they are all season tires. P7s are super quite and super comfortable for tires of this size. I was fortunate enough to test them in all conditions including deep snow, ice and slushy snow. i'm amazed how well these performed in 6 inches of snow, 4 inches of slushy snow, as well as ice. they did not hesitate when starting or stopping in deep snow and had great stopping power on ice. there are not a lot of great options for all season tires in this size, but these are absolutely the best all season tires i've owned on any car with great handling on dry roads. also, i saw some discussions about MPG ratings for these tires and i can confirm they are almost as good as any summer tires. Highway MPGs are virtually the same as my old F1s. Trips from Alexandria VA to Hartford CT only used 3/4 tank of midgrade gas on F1s depsite my HEMI. i just did the same trip on P7s and still only used 3/4 tank of midgrade gas. however, P7s are little less efficient around town. tank of gas lasted me 6 days on F1s, but only 4-5 days on P7s. overall, highly recommend P7 tires especially if you live in NE and have to do deal with deep snow, but dont want to sacrifice dry traction, MPGs or looks. they are super comfortable, handle well in dry and will out-grip your neighbors SUV in snow & ice.will post later about treadlife

These tires have amazing grip. I purchased these in the late fall shortly after the first snowfalls this year. The OEM all-season tires would just slide when stopping with any snow cover. These tires stop and accelerated in snow as if it were dry pavement. My only complaint would be some additional road noise on dry pavement, but that is a small price to pay for good winter tires. I purchased the tires and rims together. The total cost for the package was less than my insurance deductible, which I figured would have been used if I kept the OEM tires on for the winter.

I have a 2011 F-150 supercab 4x4 with the 5.0, i have the 275-55-20's. I got over 66,000 miles on these tires. They were awesome until about 45,000 miles then seemed to lose their traction in the rain. they are very quiet and resist punctures. I had them rotated every 5000 miles with my oil changes by the ford dealer. They are way better then the good years which are so loud they will give you a headache. they have outlasted any other tire i have ever owned. They are better then any other tire on dry pavement, but the BF Goodrich all terrain t/a's are much better in the sand and mud if you can take the noise. The only down fall is the price.

Initial Review, 3,500 Miles on Tires

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.

After burning thru the Pirellis PZeros that originally came with the care in 10k miles and checking out the price and availability of those same tires I decided to try an alternate brand and ran with BFG G Force TA’s which I was able to get 15K out of. I was afraid that I was going to be stuck with budgeting $2000 a year for tires, until a friend recommend I try the Michelin Pilots. Yes they too were expensive but I have been able to put over 28K miles on these tires and I am very pleased with the performance. Are they Racing Tires? No, but they do perform very well for everyday driving and cruising. I believe that we could have gotten another 8k miles out of the tires except that we took a long road trip thru AZ and NV and the continuous hot pavement driving really ate up the tread. The Michelin Pilot SuperSports were by far a better value than my other options to date.

Replaced tires after toe wear pattern on priors. Drive 900 miles per week in dry, wet, icy, snowy conditions. Very satisfied with traction in wet and light snow. Sometimes I can chirp the tires on dry pavement at stop light but its a diesel with lots of torque. Much better than previous tires, though. Great price, great product.

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!

Initial Review, 100 Miles on Tires
January 06, 2014

Needed to get some good all-season tires for my Miata. I was previously on the original tires (2004 LS) which were basically racing slicks. Had zero traction, and was petrified of driving in any snow. I needed something for the brutal Cleveland winters.

Once the General AS03’s were on my car, my new found fear of driving in the snow was gone. I drive carefully in the winter (and like a demon in the non-winter), and as much as everyone thinks a Miata is an awful car in snow, it’s 100% what you have on the wheels. These tires are very grippy in packed snow, very stable in the brown slush, and do not waver on the packed ice the freeways get when it’s super cold. Yes, you can still do donuts and fishtail around the corners when you want to. But if you are an adept driver in awful conditions, this all-season tire is nearly as tight as the Graspix. I say nearly, because those tires are specifically winter tires and their tread is far more snow friendly.

What I do like about the AS03’s is that they are a fantastic middle-ground between winter and summer tires. My previous miata’s Pirelli tires were firm, and the ride was definitely abrasive. If you like that sticky, tactile, feel every bump kind of drive, the AS03’s are not it. The Graspix were absolutely terrible for summer driving, being very spongy in the corners and just basically a “mushy” drive. The AS03’s are right in between; far smoother a ride on dry pavement than the stock tires, but they feel like they handle well in the corners, firm enough sidewalls to take on-ramps twice the speed, but a tread that will let you take that same on-ramp at nearly posted speed in bad conditions.

Granted, I’m only a week in on these tires, I hear they wear pretty quickly, but at this price point it’s far easier for me to replace them every couple/few years than ripping through two sets of tires. Summer will tell when I get back to driving driving again, but for winter performance, these tires are very reliable.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the performance of these tires. I discovered them by doing a search on Tire Rack and reading other reviews. I replaced the oem 255-60-19 Goodyears with the Pirelli 255-55-19. I don't know how much of the handling improvement was due to going to a slightly lower profile and how much is due to the tire construction itself. But I do know that the improved snow and ice traction is all due to the Pirellis. I would highly recommend these tires. When it comes time to replacing these tires I will consider replacing them with the Michelins only because I have had good luck with Michelins in the past. But I would only do so if the reviews for the Michelins were as good or better as the Pirelli's, and the Mich's were very close in price. Otherwise, I know I won't regret purchasing the Pirelli's again and neither ill you.

After a harrowing trip down the icy freeway with my stock tires on my 500 I bought the bullet and ordered a set of these tires and a set of wheels from tire rack. The difference is amazing. I installed the new mounted wheels in a neighbors garage. had to take 4 runs at his driveway to get in the garage. put the wheels on, pulled back in the street and walked right up the driveway with no issues. No more spinning out at icy intersections or wallowing all over the road in the snow. I have never had winter tires before but I will always have them now. The price I paid is a lot less than the cost of a beat up suv that I was thinking of buying just to get around in the winter. Also the service at Tire rack was top notch. Everything I needed was included including new bolts and a spacer ring for each wheel that I didnt know that I needed.

This tire is flat out amazing! Over the course all my car ownership, I've changed out various kinds of tires, and this by far is the best I've had so far for the price. 25k miles later, they perform just as well if not better as new. The ride is smooth, fairly responsive, and fairly quiet. The best part however is the traction! Both dry and wet traction is pretty amazing. Wet traction shines, as you really gotta try to spin the wheels for them to spin on these boots & dry traction is even better. I've never managed to accidentally peel off, they just stick to the road and give a real sense of confidence. I would no doubt buy them again once these wear out, however would probably go for a 205/55 or 50, as the cornering stability just isn't as nice as 55/50 height. Nevertheless, I can take a 25mph steady speed turn and the car feel stable. On a 55, the same turn can be taken with 30mph.
I do recommend this tire, definitely!

I am so happy with my Pirelli Scorpion Verde's that I can't wait to buy another pair. I had Michelin Energy's on my X5 and yes they are a good all around touring tire, however the price is just outragious. Plus, Pirelli's Scorpion Verde's to me are a far more superior tire from the ride, the handling and the way the tire is built. For example, as soon as they arrived at my home, which was delivered by UPS within a day, I could see the quality of the tire and design that stood out from the Michelin tire. Nevertheless, I recently went on a business trip to Delaware and Philly and let me tell you the noise level was low and the comfort and ride was excellent. I've never seen such deep tread grooves on a tire. This tire can handle Rain, Snow and anything in my opinion. I saved over $150 dollars a tire, Verde $201 and Michelin $350. In closing, I have always wanted to have Pirelli's on my car and now I do and I absolutely love them and recommend them to all. You don't have to spend the big bucks on Michelin, really. Let me reiterate that the Pirelli Scorpion Verde is an ideal tire for a SUV that travels via city and highway and ultimatley gives you that confidence of driving in style and luxury. I will be placing my next order for the other pair by the end of the week. Travel Safe!

Bought these tires to replace the ONM Continentals, which were horrible. At the time I lived in PA, so I wanted tires that could handle moderate snow, which they performed well. Initially the tires were very good in wet conditions, but as the tread wore down some slippage developed from a standing start, but they never hydoplaned. These tires are of block design and I learned the hard way that rotation is essential at every oil change or 5K miles. I let the tires go due to a minor misalignment and they became very noisy. I had them shaved to even out the tread and with frequent rotation I got another 20K out of the tires. Just replaced the tires with 4/32 ends left, so the tread wear is excellent, even after shaving off some tread. These are good rugged tires and I would recommend them for heavy duty use. I went with a different brand this time as snow is no longer an issue for me. One more item, in five years the price of these tires has almost doubled,

A good tire for the price, a little noisier than expected, but if I wanted a quiet tire I would have gone with michelins. Previously had pirelli scorpion atr's, they were the best tires I ever had on my truck, did everything far beyond my expectations, but the price jumped up $300 for the set so I started looking at other options. Decided to try these out, I liked the all terrain tread for the snow and driving on the beach. So far holding up well, probably get 35 to 40,000 out of them, not bad for the way I drive. A lot of tread squirm for the first 2-3,000 miles but settled in after that, had to slow down a lot for the on/off ramp almost felt like I was going to lose it, but never lost traction though. But, after 2-3000 miles the uneasiness went away and the back end didn't fell like it was going to pass me anymore. They definitely don't handle like the pirelli's they replaced, it helps to remind me I'm driving a full size truck and not a sports cars. I'm sure I added about 10,000 miles to the life of the tires because of it. Not necessarily a bad thing.

I think I am the only review here that has these "SUV" tires on a luxury passenger car. I bought these solely on price and reviews on Tire Rack, and I'm very pleasantly surprised at the outstanding quality and value. I came off a set of Hankook V-12's that were an excellent summer tire in all ways except tread life. Since I plan to sell this car in a year or so, I got the "cheapest" tire available. In terms of ride and quietness (2 traits most important to my wife), these even exceeded the Hankooks, which were in themselves vastly superior the the OEM Pirelli P-zeros. In deep snow in Colorado during a ski trip last month, they were outstanding; I did better than a guy in a Grand Cherokee (2wd) we were following during a heavy snow!
Anyone seeking a really good tire at an amazing price, don't hesitate getting these for ANY vehicle.

I purchased this tire after speaking with a customer service representative when I asked for a viable option to the factory Michelin Pilot tires. I have been nothing short of delighted with these tires. They have a slightly harder tread compound than the Pilots did they maintain the cornering stability of the Michelins. Overall, I feel that they driver better than the Michelin Pilots and offer a better value due to better treadware and come in at a lower price point. I would enthusiastically recommend that you consider these tires as an excellent performing, outstanding value replacement tire for heavier SUV's that are used on-road.

These were the factory tires on my wife's 2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS. Overall, not a bad tire. I was very surprised to get 40k miles, although they really could have been replaced 5,000 miles ago, but the weather has been very dry so we've put it off a bit longer. I would call this an average tires. Its got some good things and bad things about it. The worst thing I would say is the road noise as they wear down. Although they were never quiet, they were not an issue the first 20,000 miles or so. After that, they have gotten noticeably louder. If you have more of an economy car like the Elantra that doesn't have good sound deadening for the interior, these tires will get pretty noisy about half way into the tread life.
As far as how they drive, I would say they are great on dry roads, average on wet roads. We've only driven with ice or snow a couple of times since we are in Fort Worth, so we don't have enough feedback to give an honest opinion on ice and snow.
As far as value, I think there are a lot better options available at this price or spend a few bucks more per tire and get something great. We are ready to replace and are going to choose between Pirelli or Yokohama.

I've had these tires for a couple months and have several thousand miles on them now. I waited till Jan. 1st to buy them, as the price dropped drastically...there was a drawback though...they're terrible in cold weather; I live in Virginia Beach, VA and figured it wouldn't be a big deal, as its not like I live in Minnesota (anymore). Anyway, Good luck trying to get traction in the cold..they are after all summer tires! Needless to say, I expected it and do not give a negative rating for that reason. When it warms up, they respond perfectly...rain or sun, they're great tires!!! I do think they'll wear really quick, but just based on a visual check. Oh, and the white letters look a little funny...I think I like it though; but it took a while to get used to it on my BMW! ya don't see white lettered tires on a Bimmer too often haha. Overall, great tires!!!!! Good thing it doesn't get too cold here in VA!

Excellent tire! 35k so far and I'll probably get another 10k, commendable for a 40k rated tire. They have worn evenly with regular rotation. I pull trailers and a boat regularly, drive back trails for camping and atv riding. These tires have never let me down. They have got me thru several good size mud holes, some w/o having to use 4wd. Highway performance and noise level is surprising given it's an offroad tire. I definitely will put these on my truck again. Great return on the price!!
