Pirelli P4 Four Seasons
Follow-Up Review: 30,000 miles on tires
At 30,000 miles, the P4 still has plenty of tread. But the grip is not great and its becoming more noticeable. The car has been driven on a combo of paved, country roads (nothing too arduous), highway and city streets. The tire may have a long tread life, but if there is insufficient grip, that is irrelevant for my purposes. Rain and hydroplaning are the major issues here. So I am going to try another option. It was great for the first 25k.
Initial Review: 7,000 miles on tires
I live in a rural area in N. Cal., with lots of rain and poorly paved roads, and getting a tire that performs well in wet weather was priority No. 1. In heavy rains, the car feels like it's plastered to the road. It handles black ice very well. At 7,000 miles, the tires show zero wear. There's been a slight decline in mileage, maybe 1 mpg, but it doesn't make that much of a difference. Overall, I'm very happy with these tires so far.
