Pirelli P4 Four Seasons
Follow-Up Review: 64,000 miles on tires
64,000+ miles later these tires are still going strong. I have frequent tire rotations to maintain optimum wear. Although now the tires are making noise. These tires have been a substantial improvement in wear, traction (dry/wet), and performance over the factory tires! I am currently at 6/32s in wear so I am on par with that these tires are marketed for. <br><br>I have driven this car with more confidence thanks to these tires. More than likely I will purchase these tires again! Highly recommended!
Initial Review: 37,000 miles on tires
Purchased these Pirelli P4 Seasons based on reviews. Overall they are much improved over OEM. Traction, steering response and wet road condition driving has improved dramatically over the OEM tires. I've driven in snow and relatively deep snow and these tires performed to my standards.
The drawback to these tires is the loss in ride comfort. These are stiffer than you might expect. Also road noise is quite noticeable after a little over 1/2 way through its tread life. You'll notice the noise in city driving. However, once you hit highways speeds the noise level drops. Overall I'm very satisfied so far. I may replace these tires possibly some time next year based on mileage. Right now they are wearing better than OEM and I should get well over 50,000 miles on them before they will be due for replacement.
