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 67% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A6 Avant 3.0 TDI Quattro (225/55 R16 W) on mostly motorways for 30,000 average miles
I drive quite a lot mostly on motorways and I have the tyres since 3 years already. I like them due to a lot of good issues which all others have also mentioned, however I am now thinking to change to another brand. The reason for that is that I had to order already 2 extra tyres in the last 1 year. 1 was damaged last fall at the car maintenance during the change for my winter tyres. The Pirelli was torn apart through the usual tool which they use to remove it from the rim. I was shocked when I saw it after 1 1/2 year of usage. In the maintenance they told me that they've never seen something like that. Last week when I let my winter tyres change to the Pirelli again at another maintenance one of the tyres had a bulge on the inner side. Either I received accidentally the 2 worst tyres made by Pirelli or the quality is worrying. I just ordered another tyre and it will be the last P7 Blue and will see what will happen.

Given 94% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Octavia vRS (225/35 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 36,430 spirited miles
The previous tyres fitted to my Mk3 Skoda Octavia vRS when it was new lasted less than 22,000 miles of spirited cross country driving on mixed A & B roads so I went looking for a tyre that would wear less but provide better economy and grip in both wet and dry conditions. After reading many tyre reviews I decided to fit a set of 4 Pirelli Cinturato P7 Blue tyres as they had scored well in previous tests and reviews, and I have not been disappointed. After covering over 36,400 miles there is still just under 4mm of tread on each tyre, mind you I have rotated Front to Rear every 10,000 miles to ensure even wear, even with a Stage 1 remap the tyres handled the additional power and torque for the last 26,000 miles and have continued to provide me with the same level of grip and comfort as they did when initially fitted. I think that they are so good, that I'm about to order another full set.

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a Saab Automobile 9 3 Aero 1.9 TTiD convertible (235/45 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 44 average miles
I use these tyres on my 200hp Saab convertible that I drive daily with an average of 40.000 miles per year.
From the first week of December till halfway March I use winter tyres (Vredestein WIntrac s)
The Pirelli P7 Blue on the rear staill have 5mm after 44.000 miles of use.
On the front it's less than 3mm now. Will replace those after the winter season :-)
No doubt in my choice: Pirelli P7 Cinturato Blue !

Excellent cornering at high speeds, verry pleassant to drive in heavy rain, superb steering, silent and extreme durable.

The review system doen't allow separate front/rear axle........ frond is EOL, rear is midlife.

Given 73% (breakdown) while driving a Opel Vectra C GTS (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 0 spirited miles
I bought these tires as a replacement for my Bridgestone Potenza RE002.
I was looking for a more eco/touring tire, and oh my got I made the right choice.

Soft side wall with lowest rolling resistance (and A mark for fuel use) makes these tires very comfort oriented. And yes they are a great improvement compared potenza's on this respect.

The grip on the wet is good, superb on braking but not so good on cornering. On the wet the grip is plenty on braking.
Cinturato P7 bule's are know for having a very soft side wall which makes the car "wobbly" when turning, so this gives no sporty feeling and no confidence at all. Road feedback is OK but leaves plenty to be desired since the handling is no good.

Due to the soft side wall the car rides much better then sporty tires, at first it feels like you're in a cloud. And fuels usage is very good.

At last it all depends on what you want from tires, if you are looking for comfort and fuel efficiency these are the best choice for you. But same can not be said if you like to do spirited driving a lot which I love but is something I sacrificed in favor of better ride.
