Latest Group Test Results

2018 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 11th of 16 tyres

  • Positive - Low noise.
  • Negative - Understeer in the dry and wet.

2018 Auto Review 225/45 R17 Tyre Test - 7th of 11 tyres

2014 Auto Review Summer Tyre Test - 205/55 R16 - 2nd of 16 tyres

  • Positive - Good wet grip, good dry handling, low noise
  • Negative - The tendency to skid in the wet, lack of comfort
  • Overall - This is the 5th year the P7 Cinturato has been i our tests, but the second place in our ranking confirms that the tyres have been successfully updated over the years. In traction on wet roads, they are second only to Continental, and resist aquaplaning better than any tyre. On the track, wet handling is not always appropriate, marked by a sometimes excessive propensity to drift. In the dry, the grip is excellent. And no noise. Small joints and seams are smoothed well, but bigger bumps noticeably felt in the cabin. Feels like a high "carcass stiffness." Good option for active drivers.

I've had these on since my car was new I've went through 6 tyres in total and covered 106000 miles at the moment they are the run flats too.... These are probably my favrioute tyre for all round performance I've used that's why I keep using them.

Given 73% while driving a BMW 320D MSport Tourer XDrive (255/40 R18) on mostly town for 0 average miles
These Pirelli P7 run flats were fitted to a BMW 320d f30 xdrive loan car I had for a week, identical to my own car which is fitted with Bridgestone S001s so an interesting direct comparison. The Pirellis are softer with a much less hard ride, but also made the car feel a bit floaty. They didn't tramline like the Bridgestone though. Noise level seemed much the same. Definitely a comfort oriented choice. They were used in soaking wet weather and felt secure, but there is too much traffic where I live to find the limits of adhesion especially with 4wd.

Given 79% while driving a Skoda Superb MK3 (2015 Present) (235/40 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 30 easy going miles
My car has done 30k on one set from new. It's used for camping and lugging around a trailer, but mostly motorway mileage. Not usually driven hard or aggressively, but handles well when asked to. They are pricey, but I've seen regular returns of 18-20k on my cars in the past (typically 1 year for my mileage) with other brands, with similar or worse performance. I've not had one complaint. They are now approaching the wear indicators (prob another 1k on them) and I'll be buying the same again.

Given 50% while driving a MINI JCW GP2 (205/40 R18 W) on mostly town for 500 spirited miles
Purchased a 2019 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works for my wife which cane with these tyres. I thought they would have been great tyres based om the brand, however I was so wrong, my wife doesn’t even want to drive the car anymore with those tyres. Our main complaint about the tires are the road noise, very harsh ride, sidewalls are weak and poor feedback. After 2 weeks (less than 800km) of owning the car, we damaged 3 of the 4 tyres, 2 potholes caused the tyres to burst (sidewalls had big holes in them where the rubber was just flapping) while travelling less than 40 km/h, the other tyre was lost from a sink in the road were the sidewall rubber tore away.
I will never buy these tyres again, we are from Jamaica and these tyres can not hold up to our conditions, looking to purchase Hankook Ventus evo2 instead, the run flat nature ruins the ride of the car. I don’t understand how a high performance car can come with touring tyres which are so inadequate, these tyres ruined the experience of the Mini Cooper JCW.

Given 47% while driving a BMW X3 (225/50 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
Front tyres are worn on my 2017 BMW X3 after 15000miles of easy driving rears have about 3.5mm left so I will be replacing all after the winter season (switching to sottozeros for winter). I am appalled at how poor these summer tyres have lasted and I will be looking at switching to something like Goodyear or Bridgestone which were great on my 5 series cars.
