Top Pirelli P Zero Review

Given 76% 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

Audi (275/30 R21 W) on mostly town for 2,000 average miles
Had two sets of these. Wear is fast especially with camber of S7. Terrible in the wet when braking and entering corners under hard braking. Wouldn't buy again. very hyped up tyre. About to try Michelin Power Sport 4s

This is the ultimate tyre test! Watch now!
Given 81% while driving a BMW 520d M Sport (275/35 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 11,000 average miles
Just reviewed the front tyres below in 225/40/19 as the rears are 275/35/19 due to the BMW staggered set up and as below very good tyres and after 11k the rears are down to just under 5mm.

No issues with the tyres in the wet or dry, they seem to be wearing well and evenly and should last 20-25k.

Given 83% while driving a BMW 520d M Sport (225/40 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 11,000 average miles
These tyres have done 11k now mainly Motorway and Country lanes and the fronts have worn down to 5mm all round.

Excellent dry and wet grip and although they are Run Flat i find them very comfortable, an very good tyre imho.

Given 41% while driving a Mercedes Benz S350 2004 saloon. (275/35 R20 W) on mostly town for 0 easy going miles
Tyre fitted from new MO and just manage to get 13000 miles. Also changed the front which are still legal with 3mm but wearing bad on the edge. Checked alignment and tyre pressure often. This is the second set of Pirelli P Zero that has let me down. Some budget tyres do much better than this MO tyre.
