Given 87% while driving a Mercedes Benz C180K Avantgarde (245/40 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
I use these on my W203 Mercedes C Class. I can't praise the tyres highly enough and I would definitely purchase the same again.

Handling is excellent and predictable both front and rear. Dry and wet grip is very good and inspires confidence.

Perhaps the only minus is noise. It is higher than I thought it would be but it is by no means bad.

Given 88% while driving a BMW 316 (205/50 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 2,500 spirited miles
The tyre handles well in wet conditions. Even slightly bigger puddles don't create problems. When I first time drove with these tyres on the motorway i was surprised how silent they were compared to my previous tires or my father's tyres. The tyres make ride quite comfortable even when running stiffer springs. They are very good tyres considering that they are 3rd cheapest tyre that the tyre store sold for my tyre size.

Given 83% while driving a Alfa Romeo 147 (215/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 8 average miles
One of the best touring tires I've used. Earlier in a bit different size (225/45R17) I've used Michelin Primacy 3's and covered more than 40,000 km's. Pirellis are much more drivers oriented turing types. In fact they have changed over the years and the tread pattern and the compound also evolved. When first appeared 10 years ago I've been using them in standard 205/55R16 and I've remembered them as a soft sidewall non-sporty everyday all-arounder. But now with 215/45R17 they are completely different animal.
Of course they are not an UHP tyre, but who these days is allowed to push tires to the limits on public roads to notice this UHP benefit margin they feature over premium turings?
As many other mentioned, they appeared a bit noisy in the first place but after driving a bit more than 1000km's with them they are totally acceptable.
For a 150 bhp front wheel drive hatchback they do the job splendidly, no matter the weather conditions (as long as its above 7C).
Compared to Michelins which were a bit more milage/fuel economy oriented, these have superior grip, good to very good handling characteristics and are comfortable to come across potholes.

Given 69% while driving a SEAT LEON 1.6 105 bhp (205/55 R16 V) on mostly town for 20 average miles
If you mostly drive in motorways, the tyre is generally good for normal and partly aggressive driving style and you will achieve thousand miles of driving.
But in the slippery and mostly bad greek urban roads, the P7 cinturato is not your best choise. The tyre is rough, takes a lot of time to get to the right temparatures, especially in cold and rainy days.
Yoy have the sense of lack of traction, and at the same time the comfortable of the suspension deteriorates, so you have the impression that something is going wrong with the steering wheel, the transmission and the front suspension of your car.
I bought 2 tyres the previous spring for the front axle and they have only 5000 miles. It would be pity to get rid of them and I am thinking to put them in the back axle and buy something more soft for the front axle.
