The Pirelli Cinturato P7 Blue is a Premium Touring Summer tyre designed to be fitted to Passenger Car

The Cinturato P7 Blue, Pirelli’s ambassador for sustainability, has been renewed and now extends its ‘AA’ European tyre label rating to all new sizes, setting a new standard.

When originally launched in 2012, the Cinturato P7 Blue was the first tyre in the world to claim a maximum score on the European tyre label for energy efficiency and safety (in certain sizes). The latest Cinturato P7 Blue extends this standard to the new sizes added to the range, meaning that it now boasts a maximum European tyre label score on nearly all the sizes in the entire range.

This tyre replaced the Pirelli CINTURATO P7

Top Pirelli Cinturato P7 Blue Review

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Opel vectra c (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 10,000 average miles

I bought the Pirelli Cinturato P7 blue as a replacement for Uniroyal RainSport2/Continental SportContatc2 combo that was fitted to the car when I bought it.
Was deciding between Conti SportContact5, Vredestein Ultrac Vorti and Cinturato P7 blue. Finally decided fot touring instead of sport tire and I'm not sorry. The tires are safe and progressive, very strong in wet conditions, very fuel efficient and ware slowly (after 10.000 miles stil 6,5-7mm thread left).
My driving style is mixed - mostly is motorway (75 mph) but I do alot of B road too and sometimes a section ot two of very spirited driving. Because these are touring tires I really cant fault them.

However ...

If you are doing a lot of spirited driving be ware ...
They have soft sidewalls so the road feedback and turn in into corners is a bit mooshy, grip is pleanty if driving is precise, but the tire will slide if you apply full power on faster (60 mph) long sweepers when the tires are fully loaded.

Final thoughts ...
Very competent, efficient and safe tire for touring and sometimes spirited driving.

For its intentions would definitly recomend ;)

Cheers from Slovenia

Given 70% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Megane (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 500 average miles
good tires, grip is ok all around. just too noisy for me.
city driving, and i saw a fuel drop, on the highways, didnt make any diffirence at all, maby because winter tires are 205/ wide and these are 225.
will i buy them again, propably not, cause of the noise. but im stuck with them until they wear out.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Opel Astra J Sports Tourer (225/50 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 40,000 average miles
Much better than the Michelin Primacy3 and the GoodYear Efficient grip Performance. Feeling of driving and exemplary duration.

Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus (205/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 15,000 spirited miles
Initially, I bought these tyres based on their excellent test results combined with the efficiency that they offer in the "blue" version. Straight from fitted, I was happy with the performance, though as stated it's not as immediate as a sports tyre - to be expected in a touring focussed tyre. Note also, being a touring tyre the profile is relatively narrow - my tyres offered practically zero rim protection as there is no carcass bulge in the lower profiles.

However, approximately 18 months after fitting I noticed that the performance seemed to start deteriorating, initially evidenced by poor wet grip. Dry grip remained ok. This got worse and worse (not helped by a very peaky turbo on a very front heavy diesel Focus) and resulted in me having very little confidence when turning in for a wet traffic island. We have a supermarket near here, too, with a steepish concrete ramp access (badger farm Winchester, for info) up which I would routinely lose traction in the wet.

Got fed up of risking my neck on every turn and swapped to Michelin Cross Climates all round. Problems solved.

In summary, good for ~15-20k miles, then terrible. Tyres still had the best part of 4mm tread, too.

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo C70 D5 LUX (235/45 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 22,500 average miles
Superb lifespan from these, over 22,000 miles on the front wheels of a Volvo C70 D5. This is about 33% more than I got from Michelin Primacy 3s previously. Dry grip was excellent and wet performance also very good. Not a match for a modern sports tyre but very good indeed for a touring tyre with that sort of treadlife.
