Pirelli CINTURATO P1 Reviews

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda 3 Series (195-65-15-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
pretty solid tires. provide a very quite drive and a good grip on dry tarmac. wet grip in not the best, and for rainy countries I wouldn't recommend these.

Driving on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
I've had these for 12,000 km's on a Volvo 2004 S60 2.4 after having Michelin Energy before. I've actually found them very comparable and I was happy with the Michelins but the tyre dealer I went to didn't stock them so I went for the Pirelli (after having WanLi offered to me to which I laughed).

They perform exceptionally well while obviously not being up to the standard of a full sport tyre when it comes to grip and handling. The comfort is great though, and the grip levels (considering what they are) are well up to scratch. They handle Australia's atrocious roads well and are quiet.

I've found absolutely no difference in fuel economy. I would definitely buy them again though I had Kuhmo KH17's on (what was mine) my daughter's Saab 9-3 2.0T 440 Arc and I must say I had a slight preference for the Kuhmo's all round but it's hard to compare when they're on a totally different car.

Driving on mostly town for 1,500 average miles
Had these put on a few months ago. Have had a lot of highway driving and around town.

Very impressive with the comfort and noise of the tyre as well as the wet and dry grip. Have had them in very wet conditions and did very well. In the dry on windy roads they were very good as well.

Overall they are a great tyre for my needs and a good step up from the OE Pirelli P7's.

Driving on a combination of roads for 10,000 easy going miles
Is the first time that i bought Pirelli P1 tires,195/65/R16, I think (about the numbers), i have a car (skoda octavia 1.8 turbo benzine, 150 HP-20V), bought it in 2003)and 6month about that i change the tires,and i made about12000 km until now. I believe after about 144000Km with the same car (about 200.000 km in hall my life with other cars and of course other tires)that the Pirelli tires are the best tires from all the others tires for the Greek roads ( i mean Brigestone, Continental, Good Year, Hankook) a not only.Probably for this reason Pirelli tires are used until now in Formula 1, and the technology from F1 is passing after years in our cars. Thanks Pirelli and of course your team for your tires.After about 3 more years am gonna write back to tell you if i am still satisfied

Given 58% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Polo 1.4 TDI (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 5,000 easy going miles
Bought for Economy, changed all four tyres, Falken on the front and two no-names on the back. Since the change fuel consumption has increased and the ABS went active once in the wet. Seriously unimpressed with this tyre. Handeling is also worse and can feel skittish on corners though it has not let go yet. This is in a 1.4 diesel with 70bhp. I drive easily and look for economy. Noise is ok, not better or worse. I guess some people dont like to review badly for something they own as I saw some positive reviews before buying. I wouldn't entertain these again.

Got new 4 tires.. Previous dunlop tires were much more better. Noise wise pretty much the same . 2 tires blew up from hitting a small putt hole. I wouldnt recommend

Driving on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
I found these tyres very suitable for my car... i was driving pirelli p7 previous but they were real disadter... they have very good dry grip (since i drive aggresive on mountain roads and because of my small engine it requires high rpm and curve control and handling... also they have good aqua planning, but overall they are very good on wet. On hard rain i drove them at 170km/h (limit of my car) and they handled it very well...fuel consumtion is also better that aother tyres.. aprox 1l/100km better than P7. i can compare them with michelin energy saver... Soft tyre, comfortable, recomended as well..
