Tyre Test Highlights

2010 European Summer Tyre Test - 1st of 16 tyres

2010 Auto Bild Eco Tyre Test - 1st of 5 tyres

  • Positive - Impressive all-rounder with satisfactory savings. Harmonious driving characteristics with stable cornering and short braking distances on wet and dry roads. Good ride comfort and a low rolling noise.
  • Negative - None mentioned.

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.

Given 53% (breakdown) while driving a BMW M235i (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 22,000 spirited miles
These are the tires that came on my 2015 M235i. The rear tires wore out and had to be replaced at 18,000 miles. The front will need replacing by 25,000 miles. This seems much shorter than the tire rating, and I was not doing burnouts or drag racing. This car is my wife's daily driver. My main complaint about the tire is road noise, harsh ride, and poor feedback. These are the run flats, and they are very noisy and tend wail at highest speed and transmit every road imperfection into the car as noise. You might expect this is the price to pay to transmit road feel to the driver, but these tires do not do that well either. I've replaced the tears with P Zeros and the noise has improved. We will see about the ride quality, feed back and handling when we replace the front tires with P Zeros in the next 3000 miles.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo V40 Estate (205/50 R16 W) on a combination of roads for 2,000 easy going miles
Put these on my wife's Volvo V40 in replacement of some cheap and nasty Landsails which came with the car. The car feels much more secure on the P7s. Grip well in the wet as well as the dry. Not a high performance tyre, but neither is the car! Ideal for easy going driving on motorway or country lanes.

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Peugeot 406 Coupe SE (3.0 ltr V6) (215/55 R16 W) on a combination of roads for 30,000 average miles
I've had these tyres on a Peugeot 406 Coupe 3.0i V6. Excelent tyres in dry, very good on a wet road. Going to buy P7 Cinturato again, 100%!

Given 96% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda (205/55 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
After the original new car tires of my MAZDA 3 Sport with extremely poor all roads surface traction. Replaced with this Pirelli Cinturato P7 AS(ALL SEASON) in June 2016. With over 44 years of driving experience, I can say it's worth the $$ so far. During that summer it had driven in hot summer sun and parked under well exposed sun. The reason for me to mention that is a good tire should not have rubber crack or rot under extreme conditions like my 2nd car Camry with the famous LOUSY Michellin Premier MXV4 with only 2-3 years of use which looks like a set of rolling time bomb on wheels.
Over all my Pirelli P7 tires performs as the way I expected a good tire should do. Characteristic road handling on dry road were great with good feedback for sharp cornering ability and straight forward tracking with confident. In wet driving also inspires good grips with secure feels. Tested in normal and strong down pour of that summer. Braking were also great with predicable distance as I expected from this car in top control manners. It actually rides quite good and quieter too. The OEM tires were very noisy and harsh.
I lives in the north eastern coast of North America, therefore snow comes for me to test in the winter of 2017. Normally I switch full winter snow tires. That option were not available due to all worn out from last winter usage. In the Feb. 2017 we had over 2 heavy snow storms and 1 huge blizzard in only 2 weeks. With over 60 cm+ of snow on the last one. Our city snowplows can't keep up with the heavy snowfall. I had to run some errands needs to travel on the messy highway and unfinished plowed city roads with only this Pirelli Cinturato P7 AS which wasn't designed to do on 6- 16 cm or more of messy highway and city street snow covered roads.The snow covered surfaces I encountered were not smooth, consisted with plenty of turns, slops, off highway ramps,stop and go, and some slight uphills as well.
What amazed me was this tire proves it can match my winter Blizzak on snow. The steering behavior felt safe with good confident. Traction to take off from full stop were amazing on snow too. Able to keep up with AWD and 4X4 vehicles. Braking on snow were reasonable too. Tire grips and stability on straight line and turns has good feelings of security (snow covered roads). I never expected this all season tire with treads that looks kind of smooth and doesn't look very aggressive can delivery this kind of overall performances.
