Given 79% while driving a BMW 3 series (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
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 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.

Given 71% while driving a BMW 320D (225/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 12,000 spirited miles
There tyres were fitted on the car when I bought it second hand. I do have to mention that they are runflat and that might just make them a little bit worse than the normal tyre. They feel pretty good in normal driving. The grip is definitely enough even when going fast but they I did slide while going fast some tight corners. The only think that I think ruins this tyre is the comfort. It’s not bad but definitely is not good. Going over bumps is definitely not a pleasant experience. Not that is ever is, but this tyre just feels too harsh. Again that might just be the fact that they are Runflats.
I will not buy this tyre again or at least not the runflats.

Given 89% while driving a Vauxhall 1.4 auto mk3 (215/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 32,000 average miles
2008 Vauxhall Astra H (MK5) 1.6 turbo and currently 2010 Audi A3 1.8 turbo.
had them fitted for MOT in 2016 as "midium range" tyres for my beloved Astra. As far as I remember I paid 58 pounds for each which wasnt very bad. 3 years and 32k miles later this tyres are still in good condition. Amazing value for money. Degradation in very linear. They feel very safe, have a good grip when dry, on wet conditions though they aren't best. Havent tested them on snow either.
Two weeks ago I bought myself beautifull Audi A3 and guess what? I've changed all tyres for CINTURATO P7. Just a good product for good pice which I'd recommend for normal daily commuting.

Given 73% while driving a BMW X3 (225/60 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 35,000 average miles
These came on my X3 when I bought it secondhand, and are BMW recommended. All 4 had approx. 5mm on at that point, and the first time I drove in the wet I was less than impressed at the reduction in grip levels - this was after I had had a 4-wheel alignment. 13000 miles later the tyres still have over 3.5mm but as summer is coming to an end I'm going to replace them. The date code shows them to be 5 years old, and I suspect they have done 35000 miles. If you're a high-mileage driver, these could be for you. They're not overly noisy on motorways, and are comfortable. But if, like me, you prefer to know you're not going to be sliding around on damp/wet roads, don't put them on your F25 X3.

I notice that some reviewers have posted comments on winter driving with summer tyres. I can't comment on what these might be like on ice/snow, as I use winter tyres.

Given 60% while driving a BMW 328i (225/45 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 8,000 spirited miles
I had the runflat version of these fitted to my BMW 3 Series. They were absolutely terrible, the car had almost no grip in the wet, and the tread wore down far too quickly compared to other tyre brands, they lasted about 10 months, less than 8000 miles. The grip in the dry was very good however.

In the end I got a puncture from a stone! (should never have gone through a re-enforced runflat tyre) and i swapped the Pirelli Runflats for cheap, budget Chinese runflats (the brand name isnt even on this website, they're called "Gowind"). So far, the Chinese tyres are much better (and a lot cheaper), although i havent wet-grip tested them yet.
