Tyre Test Highlights

2015 Sport Auto 235/35 R19 UHP Tyre Test - 1st of 7 tyres

  • Positive - Very high grip and shot braking distances on wet roads, good handling in all conditions, good comfort, low rolling resistance
  • Negative - Relatively low resistance to aquaplaning

2012 EVO Summer Tyre Test - 1st of 10 tyres

  • Overall - Overall the P Zero demonstrated a consistently strong showing in all the tests, other than rolling resistance where it finished last

2012 Sport Auto Summer Tyre Test - 1st of 9 tyres

  • Overall - Sensitive steering, but also very agile and very neutral on the limit - this is the Pirelli P Zero on both wet and dry surfaces. Couple that with extremely strong braking, the P Zero wins the test.

    The only negative of the P Zero is a slightly wear aquaplaning and wear result.

Questions and Answers for the Pirelli P Zero

2016-06-30 - Pirelli have just launched their new version of the PZero. When will they launch the new version of their Runflat PZero, with all the advantages, of the new standard tyre, mentioned in the press release? Thanks again, Ray.

We are still currently waiting to hear back from Pirelli regarding the launch dates for the runflat version of the new PZ4 P Zero. Update: There already are a few run flat homologations currently in the range for BMW 7 Series, Mercedes E Class and MINI Clubman. More due soon but no dates as of yet.

Top Pirelli P Zero Review

Given 76% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus (225/45 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 11,875 spirited miles
Awesome grip in wet as long the water isn´t high enough for aquaplaning. Very progressive in corners, the feedback is more than OK. Surprises don´t exist. OK, there exist better tyres if you driving in heavy rain, but if the street is only wet the P Zero is a very strong performer.

In dry the P Zero is also very fast, but the progressiveness could be better.

The week point is the temperature. Below 5° celsius the grip is noticeable poorer. The grip drops down and the tyre doesn´t give you the feedback where the limit is.

On my FWD the wear on drive axle will reach about 13000 miles, I guess. It´s not awesome but imho what you can expect from an UHP-tyre with my driveing profile.

Conclusion: The aquaplaning skills could be a bit better, the tyre should be better on lower temperatures. But overall it´s an good tyre if you want good grip in dry and wet.

I dunno how long the old version of P Zero will be available, so I don´t buy it again. The new P Zero PZ4 is available in some dimensions, I guess in near future also in 225/45R17

Given 70% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz E Class (275/30 R20 W) on a combination of roads for 150 spirited miles
The car came with Michelin Primacy 3 wich i threw away immediately. These set of Pirelli's are the new generation PZ4 and are marked as Ls which means Luxury Saloon. They also have Seal Inside technology. To be honest i have expected much more performance from these tyres. I am largely dissapointed in dry weather at around 15 Celsius which we had for the last week i've had them. Didn't try them in the wet yet, the tests claim they are strong in wet cornering... As for the limit of the tyre there is a good enough indication on when you are driving on the edge but saddly the limit comes so early...i regret not going for the michelin pilot sport 4! I will do a more complete review when i try them in wet and more hot weather.

Needless to read comments when 99% of owners of new tires compare you feel with them new to those old barely removed from the car, obviously the new ones are just as quiet and comfortable as were the old ones many years ago but do not remember and it's normal. anything new is pleasant even more as if it cost less and expectations are balanced.

Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz C220 CDI Sports (255/35 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 8,000 miles
This is the 2nd set of P Zeros that I have put on my car. The 1st set lasted 8500 miles and were the original tyres on the car. I am a great believer in keeping what came on the car on the car but at 8000 miles this is a bit excessive. I do 8000 miles a year of mixed motorway and A road driving. I do not drive fast or aggressively and can't believe the mileage from these tyres. I am going to break my tradition and change from original tyres to something else, not sure what yet.

Given 54% (breakdown) while driving a Porsche 997 911 Carrera 4s (235/35 R19 W) on mostly town for 5,000 average miles
Unfortunately my 911 (997.2) came with the N-rated Pirelli P Zeros for Porsche. They were barely run in, (they still have the rubber whiskers!) and I only added 8,000km or so before finding longitudinal cracks around the front tyres. They were made in 2013 and as such, they have now reached the end of their life. If you do a quick search, you will see posts on forums complaining about cracking P Zeros dating back to about 2001. This from Subaru, Audi, Cadillac, Ford (Mustang), Porsche and other forums. I'll be replacing with Michelins. These things are useless.
