What does "Ultra" mean in terms of a High Performance All-Season tire? Ultra High Performance All-Season tires share similar tread patterns with standard High Performance All-Seasons, but is that where the similarities end? That's what Tire Rack attempted to decipher in our most recent Real World Road Ride and Performance Track Drive. We installed Dunlop SP Sport Signature, Pirelli PZero Nero All Season, Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 and Yokohama AVID ENVigor tires on a set of BMW E92 328i Coupes and hit the road and the track.
The PZero Nero All Season tires shot to the #1 spot with excellent road manners and good overall traction, though steering response lagged just a bit. This tire is a great choice as we've tested it (and ranked it #1) before—though admittedly, our team found it difficult to decide between the four tire options as they all performed excellently.
Read our complete test results for all of the details, then shop by vehicle and discover which of the four tire options are right for you.
