Alfa Romeo (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 15,000 spirited miles
The tyre is amazing for first summer season. After that drops in performance significaly. I got them on a new Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce. They will last for 3 sesaons. If i would be more careful, even 4 seasons.

The dry handling is realy good for first year and maybe even seconf year. But after that, performance drops. You notice that the most in wet conditions.

Given 66% while driving a Toyota Estima Aeras G (235/45 R18 R) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Good tyre, grip well in dry, short braking, last longer than average. Overall satisfy with the performance & wear.

Downside is only noisy. You can feel the bumper and yellow line or bumpy road. A little bit pricey too.

Given 90% while driving a Mazda 3 Sport 2.2 Diesel 185 BHP (205/50 R17) on mostly motorways for 32 average miles
These tyres were brand new fitted to a car I purchased and matching all round.

I have found both dry and wet grip very good in these tyres, and these have even managed to handle very cautious snow driving without too much bother. I do not find that these tyres need to be "warmed up" before they perform at their best.

These have worn almost identically on all four corners of my vehicle although this might be helped by the spot on alignment check I had early on and ensuring the pressures are kept at correct levels. Approaching the end of their life the front tyres have started to wear a little quicker than the rears but have managed 32,000 miles of mostly motorway style cruising.

These tyres have taken some battering from the horrendous state of UK roads and not had a problem until today, some debris cut my front right tire and it quickly deflated while travelling at 50mph on a motorway (average speed cameras in roadworks). Despite not noticing immediately the car still held onto the road well and was stable to drive even with a my steering wheel pulling left and right. So top marks for stability when they have suddenly deflated!

I am happy with the performance of these over the last two years and I have now purchased a brand new set to replace both of my front tyres.

Given 64% while driving a SEAT Arona (215/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 7,000 average miles
Pirelli Cinturato P7 came as standard fit on my new Seat Arona in UK

Intially I thought the tyres were good, good grip, performed well. Seemed to be a good premium tyre. This was during the warm summer months.

However as the temperatures started to fall I discovered they are not happy when cold, On a few occasions I was pulling out of a side turning in rain with tyres scrabbling for grip, spinning the wheels in a 1 litre auto car was not what I expected. On one occasion a car came around a corner towards me, whilst I was struggling to grip the wet tarmac (which was quite dangerous, and has put me off the P7). However once the tyres had done a mile and warmed a bit they were ok.

In the UK they are sold as all year tyres, even if you pick up your new car in January in a blizzard, this is what is fitted, Seat UK (and other Volkswagen brands in UK) do not offer an all-season or winter tyre, on new cars, even as an option. However these are summer tyres, and quite poor in the rain when temperatures are lower.
When temperatures are close to freezing 0c they are hard and don't grip.

If you live in a hot country, or one where tyres are changed by season then these are great tyres. However performance in the rain is poor at temperatures below about +10c The UK can get cold rain (even in the summer) so these tyres are unsuitable for countries like UK with maritime climates.

I have since discovered that Pirelli sell an all-season (but not available in the 215 / 45 R18 size that is standard wheel fitted to some Seat Arona models in UK). I simply can't recommend the P7 for use in UK as it gets hard and non-grippy unless it is a warm / hot day. Even though they are wearing well I want to get rid of them this autumn because wheelspin is too easy with them.

Given 41% while driving a Fiat Bravo (225/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
In less than 4 years and less than 25k miles, ~ 17k on the rear, 7k on the front, the tyres are rock hard and perished, to the point cracks have appeared in the tread, and grip has reduced to next to nothing. Approximately 3.5mm of tread left.

Will not buy a Pirelli tyre again.
