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
Hello.

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 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.

Given 95% (breakdown) while driving a Vauxhall (205/60 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Bought these tyres for the front of the car as a replacement for Goodyear Efficientgrip which the previous owner had fitted. Did a fair bit of sourcing before buying these tyres and was highly impressed after purchasing.

For a summer touring tyre these are superb in the dry and very impressive in the wet. For fast aggressive driving, these are adequate for wet or dry conditions, but maintain comfort when driving long distance. For anyone who is after a tyre solely for sporty driving, there are other tyres which will offer more in terms of feedback and preciseness, however for an all round tyre these are excellent. In terms of progressiveness, when the limit of grip was exceeded, it was fairly gradual and easy to correct. In terms of wear, I have now reached just over 2.4mm after 20000miles with a fair amount of sporty aggressive driving on country roads, as well as long distance journeys on a daily basis. The Astra is fairly front heavy so these tyres worked well and inspired confidence by completely reducing any understeer through corners or locking up under heavy breaking in wet conditions.

As for disadvantages, although these tyres have lasted 20000miles, the grip seemed to drop noticeably after around 10000miles. When compared to the Continental Premium Contact 2s I had on my previous car, which maintained the grip until the tyres were worn out, this was a unexpected drawback.

Overall a great all round tyre for summer touring, which is comfortable for long distance driving, while being equally as impressive when driven aggressively on windy country roads in dry or wet conditions. However the grip will not last the entire life of the tyre, as I found during the last 8000 to 10000miles in which the tyre noticeably lost grip before the tread had even become close to the legal limit. Although I have fitted different tyres to my car, I would recommend this tyre and would consider purchasing these again in the future.

Excellent tyre . great grip and have so far gotten nearly 20k miles out of them . very reassuring in the wet , i have never felt the car slip or aqua plane and have also found them comfortable and quiet . i will buy them again far superior to previous Bridgestones

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Avensis estate 1.8 petrol (215/55 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 15,000 easy going miles
Excellent tyres. Had Goodyear Excellence and Michelin Primacy 3 fitted previously on the car. Apparently both Goodyear and Michelin had to be less noisy as the noise rating is 3 dB lower than Pirelli especially since the one I have is reinforced. However, in real life all 3 tyres subjectively have the same level of noise. Problem with Goodyears was a relatively fast wear. After 25k miles tyres became useless. Michelins were better, however much more pricier. Although I don't have anything bad to say about Michelin I feel that price is too steep. This time I tried Pirelli's and so far very pleased. After 15k mostly motorway miles tyres still look like new. Not a sporty tyre though. However, the grip both wet and dry is excellent for touring tyre. Quiet.
I can certainly recommend these tyres to everyone, who values comfort, reasonable grip and most importantly wants to get a lot of miles from tyre set.
I'll certainly consider to buy Pirelli's again when next time I need new tyres.
