Initial Review, 2,500 Miles on Tires
May 05, 2014

Purchased these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone Turanza EL 400-2 marginally worn tires, because of their poor wet handling performance in standing water at highway speeds. In my first 2500 miles with the Continental Pure Contacts, they performed flawlessly in heavy downpours at 70 MPH, and in dry conditions are smoother and quieter-riding than the OE Bridgestones, confirming what others had reported in spite of an agressive tread pattern. Fuel economy so far appears slightly better as well based on a 2500 mile road trip for which I kept detailed records. I was also considering the Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S Plus, but was concerned that the treadpattern didn't appear to have as significant lateral grooves to evacuate water as the Continentals. I find they are notably more responsive than the OE tires, and would recommend them to anyone who appreciates a quiet, smooth riding tire that also has a high performance capability. My performance reference is based on many years of driving BMWs with high performance tires, and while the Passat does not have the balance and suspension of a BMW, these tires make it a much better car.
I cannot comment on treadware or winter driving characteristics at this point. I have snow tires on dedicated rims, but the "shoulder" seasons give us early or late snow events that are a reality where we live, and I have interrupted a return home trip, stopping overnight at a hotel when an early Fall snowstorm of only 2" made continuing with the OE Turanzas, a hazardous undertaking. From other reviewers' comments respecting snow performance of the Continental Pure Contacts, I would likely have been able to safely continue in a moderate to light snowfall. Extremely pleased so far.

Just mounted.. Initial impression is nothing but good stuff. I am still taking it easy on them, breaking them in and all. But I have been hitting corners where my previous sets ( Pirelli P-Zero-Nero M+S and All Seasons ) would be moaning at the edge of breaking loose when they were pretty new, at the same speeds, the Michelins are not making a peep. They feel like they will keep gripping. This is my first set of proper summer tires. I will follow up after a few K.

Other note: I have read on bimmerforums that these tires should not be allowed to reach freezing temps when they are stored for the winter. That a vibration/hum can develop if they ever get too cold? *shrug*

Bought these tires in December. These were my first snow tires, and I picked a great winter (82" of snow this winter). The only times I got stuck were when I tried going through +10" of frozen snow and the small civic bottomed out. On the roads I had nothing but fun, easily passing suv's. Everyone always puts blizzaks on a pedestal, but I would recommend these as an underdog overperformer.

With only 250 miles on these tires, I've already experienced very wet road conditions with excellent results at both highway and city street speeds and conditions.
Dry road handling is excellent. I am able to maneuver our many pot holes with extreme confidence. Years of autocross experience also helps.
I missed the snow season so can't comment at this time.
I went from an all season Goodyear Assurance triple tread with 85,000 on them (another tire that I rated almost as high as the Pirelli) then through the winter with Cooper snow tires, to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 Grand Touring.
The first major difference was the tire noise and gas mileage. These are the quitest tires I've ever had on my car. My gas milage avg is 25 mpg. This is 3 mpg better than the Goodyear and 7 mpg (to be expected) than the Cooper snows.
As with my Goodyear tires, I expect to get at least 80,000 miles out of them. Maintenance is the key to a long tire lifeand I perfome this religiously.
One othe note, They also look good on my Outback wagon.

I purchased these tires mid winter in central NY where we get a lot of snow. I was NOT happy with the OEM run flat tires that came on the car. The side walls are extra heavy and compromise the ride TOO much for my taste. These Pirelli's are a perfect fit for me. The ride quality and comfort are excellent. Wet traction and snow traction great, even in 4 plus inches of unplowed snow ; )). They handle well although not at the level of the OEM Pro_Conti's but I'm okay with that. They still hold the sharp corners I occasionally encounter and grip well from a stop when you want a HARD acceleration. The pricing here was the best I could find and tech support 5 stars. I hope they last the 70K but if I get 50k I'd be happy.

Excellent tire. I have put them through the paces in all weather through a fall and winter in Minnesota. Having another Allroad in the house with sport and snow tires to compare these to, I have to say that these tires gave me no reason to switch to snow tires this year on my daily driver. They respond amazlingly in deep or light snow, are predictable and true on ice, and handle excellent in the dry and wet.
My only small objection is that they tend to feel slightly wobbly when cornering at higher speeds, for instance 40mph+ on a tight cloverleaf.
For all around performance, reliability, treadwear, etc. this is one of the best tires money can buy.
Combined with the AWD of the Allroad, this tire was truly unstoppable this winter!

Installed on my 2007 F-150 FX2; very nice tire and best bang for the $ in an area like ours [British Columbia by the coast] where rain and snow or ice and dry weather are all unpredictable and can be encountered all during the same day of driving; even in June! Sometimes they will thump for the 1st km or so but are fine when they warm up.
I went over the Coquihala Pass in a January snow storm and passed several vehicles with snow tires that were stuck [not that the
Spec-X are a winter tire but I was happily surprised]. They tracked well [excellently!] through icy ruts even though the 275/55s are wider than most other vehicle tires on the road [so like they were a tad wider than the ruts]. 200 lbs of sand in the back of the empty truck box keeps them working in snow & icy conditions.
In the rain [and we get lots here]; they are superb; no kidding; you'd think you were on dry pavement; hit a big puddle at 120 km/hr and they haven't ever hydroplaned yet.
Cornering: I think the truck would roll over before they would lose traction; I had to learn that the Spec-Xs were better than my vehicle & its suspension and my driving capabilities.
Noise: they are on a truck not a Lincoln Town Car; what can one expect? Having said that: they do not differ with the original tires.
I have a reprogramming chip [and some other mods] and set the maximum vehicle speed to 120 m/hr; I am happily here to report the Spec-X's just cruise along and track well at high speeds; again tire performance & quality exceeds the vehicle's aerodynamics.
Would have liked to see 60K out of them but they have worked well and lasted twice as long as the original Pirelli's our F-150 came with.
I am looking for another set soon; will likely buy the 305/50R20s instead of the 275/55R20s I now have.
Compared to other tires; the Spec-X out rotates other tires in traction, wear and comfort in all settings and I'd agree with that rating.

OMG. I replaced original equipment ContiproContact runflats that were loud and rough. Ok, they were VERY loud and EXTREMELY rough. These are whisper quiet and ride even better than my winter sneakers Michelin Pilot Alpin which are 205/55 16s compared to these 225/45 17s!! The Pirelli Cinturato P7s are amazing! And the same price as Conti Pure Contacts which were being considered for this purchase. I couldn't make them hydroplane, they track true and straight on the 4-lane, they are quiet and smooth and turn-in is quite sharp. You won't regret these.

Had almost no snow or ice this winter but lots of rain. As expected these tires handled the rain without issue. Superior wet weather performance.

After two mid-Atlantic winters these tires impress for their relative quiet, smoothness and overall competence on dry and wet roads. My mpg suffers only a little. I still have 12/32 tread on all 4 tires. Wear has been even, keeping the pressure at 38 to 40 psi.

Just (Mar 28, 2012) took them off for the summer. Put on a set of Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology on my OEM wheels.

I am a sales rep driving 35K a year, so I'm in the car a lot. Tires / wheels are important to me! These are my Summer set up to switch out from Blizzak's in the winter. If these give me decent wear, I will be very happy with them. I would recommend them.

What a difference this tire is from the fairly worn set of Yokohama all seasons. Superior wet, cold, and snow traction. In 40 -45 degree F temps, the Yokohama’s would constantly be calling the traction control system into action. The Pirelli Sottozero 3’s almost never activate the traction control in the dry and only under heavy load in the wet. I have an open diff so snow and ice causes the DSC to blink often, but the overall performance in these conditions is wonderful. These tires really bite well in the corners. Always inspire confidence in any condition. I have the V rated version and they feel like a winter performance tire should. Not as crisp in the corners as a summer tire, but perfect for Chicago winter conditions.

I have owned two sets of these Pirelli's. The first was on a company Subaru Outback. I was so impressed I ordered a set for my 2014 JCW Coupe. I took delivery of my car just before Christmas 2013 so I had them put on immediately before picking up the car from the dealer. We get a lot of snow and a lot of snow types from 7-11 slushy to deep packed here in Colorado, not to mention ice.

The reason you get these is because you want some performance capabilities along with good snow traction. I drive through mountains, prairie and just took a trip to Vegas on dry warm road. I left them on because I could still hit snow in the UT and CO mountains. We have had a lot of snow this year up until about March so these tires have really had a good trial in lots of snow and in warm weather in Vegas and NM.

The snow traction is amazing. I have Michellin Xice on my company Malibu, Blizzaks on my Mini Clubman S and these Pirelli's on the JCW. I have driven all in sequence in several types of snow and ice. All are good tires but these Pirelli's are my favorite. They handle extremely well in the snow. I went in a snow covered parking lot doing donuts with and without traction control. It was really difficult to break traction. On the highway and on some icy areas they are fantastic. No snow tires make you impervious but I believe these are the best short of studded. The main reason I like them is because of the terrific dry and even warm weather traction. They are superb. I will not autocross in them but in a normal sedan or SUV I would consider running them all year. They do not seem to wear excessively and cold, warm, wet, snowy or icy they are terrific. There are no deficiencies. For a snow tire I would actually give them a 10 in dry but I think that is for summer tires. I think for price and all around performance in a climate like I have, -25 in winter and temps can change 50 degrees in one day and different altitudes...this is a fantastic tire. You won't go wrong with these.

I have used three brands of snows, Pirelli, Blizzaks and these Michelins. I have these on a corporate Malibu. I drive a LOT of city and through the Colorado Rockies and across prairie. I need a tire that will handle in most every temperature and condition and give me good stopping and handling in the city. These tires get worked very hard, especially in the city with quick starts at lights. If you are a city driver you know you may have seconds to make a left and you will tailgate the lumbering Buick, SUV or Camry in front of you to get through.

I will say this is an outstanding tire. I watched the videos here on Tire Rack and I cannot disagree. I love the Pirelli's and this tire in particular. I really cannot tell them apart in my driving so it is subjective. However, the Michelin's are holding up well as I drive a lot in the winter. These tires stay on minimum six months a year.

I took the Malibu out with these in a real slushy snow and it was passable. Nothing does really well in the slush as you ride up on it. I took my other car with Blizzaks and no difference. However, these tires bite, ride and recover well. They are really superb on dry road and warm weather, too. This is what I really appreciate. A Malibu is not a performance car but I drive it pretty hard, chirp the wheels frequently and push the front wheel drive. The back and front stay well planted and predictable. In the worst snow and ice the tires give good grip and minimum sliding with quick recovery. That is all you can ask. If the wear is good I am actually playing with the idea of putting these or some Pirelli winters on my Mini Countryman all year. I kayak and have an idea these will be good in sand and small rock near the rivers. Since I am in Colorado you can actually hit snow 12 months of the year in the mountains.
This is a great all around tire that should meet most needs. You can try and pick minute differences in tires but you will not go wrong with these.

Simply amazing! These summer tires lasted me two seasons and almost 50000km on all types of mountain highways and conditions from northern British Columbia to the southern tip of Arizona. I own a 2011 VW GTI and I love to drive fast especially in the corners. I bought the car new with a set of Pirelli all seasons on them but didn't care for them much. These Michelin tires were a huge upgrade and gave me the confidence to consistantly push the limit. Mind blowing stablility and control with no slippage except when cornering under the most extreme circumstances. There is some hydroplaning in very wet conditions but not enough to keep you from being the lead car...every time. There is some road noise for the first few thousand kilometers during the break in period but it becomes increasingly less noticeable. You really get to know your vehicle and your driving capabilities when you run these tires. I am a starving university student but I live for those long, summer roadtrips so the price for these tires is well worth living off of Kraft Dinner and hotdogs for a few more months. I will definitely be buying them again. Thank you Tirerack for providing us with the best selection and prices for the only shoes that really matter!

I also run Michelin Pilot Alpin in the winter which are also very good performance winter tires. Check em out!

Have a separate set of wheels/winter tires, so can't comment on snow/ice traction, but other reviews appear positive. Like the responsiveness as well as the ride, and they're pretty quiet on the highway. These are really great tires, I only wish they made them in the size my truck takes, I'd order a set in a heartbeat.

Best Tires for Subaru Outback

Monday, March 31, 2014 by Gary Stanley

If the tires on your Subaru Outback are nearing replacement, be sure to check out the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. While many drivers associate Pirelli with producing ultra high performance tires for exotic high-end sports cars like Ferrari and Lamborghini, they also make outstanding all-season touring tires. In fact, the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus is currently ranked number one by our customers in the Grand Touring All-Season performance category.  

The tire's great balance of traction, handling and ride quality to go along with a 70,000-mile treadwear warranty make the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus an ideal match for many Subaru Outback drivers.  

Take a look at what Outback owners are saying about their experience with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus:

"So glad I did my research with Tire Rack and compared the tires side-by-side. After a full week of research, I went with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus and the difference is amazing. The noise level from my previous Bridgestone Potenza is a 180. The Pirelli is hands down the best tire I've owned!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Subaru Outback Wagon 

"This tire has amazed me since it was installed 10,000 miles ago. Immediately, I noticed a difference in decreased road noise and increased ride comfort over the O.E. Continental. It has been a great tire while driving in heavy rain and an equally as great tire when taking corners a little faster than you should." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited

"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 O.E. Potenzas, Kumho Solus KH16 and two sets of General AltiMAX HPs. These Pirellis 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 Connecticut, so I have had many chances to test these on snow and ice. Truly impressive." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Subaru Outback L.L. Bean

While you're thinking about tires, check your tires' air pressure since they can lose 1 psi per month. To learn more about this important safety issue, read "Winter Air Pressure Versus Summer Air Pressure."
