2013 Auto Review Performance Summer Tyre Test - 6th of 9 tyres

  • Positive - Handling on wet and dry roads, grip on wet roads, quiet
  • Negative - Braking performance on dry roads, high rolling resistance
  • Overall - High wet grip and good resistance to aquaplaning, these tyres give the vehicle a sporty feel. Long dry braking, but good lateral grip and fairly quiet for a sports tyre.

Given 59% while driving a Audi A4 Avant S Line (143) (255/35 R19 W) on mostly country roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Tried these for the first time after reading decent reviews about them. Really nice feel to them in dry and wet grip, car seems to handle well considering it weighs 2 tonnes. The tyres aren't noisy and long trips to Blackpool and Barnsley were fine. Nice and smooth. The only issue I have with them, and it's a big one, is the wear. After fitting the front tyres in June 2019 I am having to replace them in August 2020, and that's with covid coming down on the country and me only travelling to work 3 days a week instead of 5. I won't be buying these again, for the same price I am going to try Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 which have much stronger reviews than these.

Given 100% while driving a Audi S4 (235/35 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 4 spirited miles
Run these on my 500+ bhp Audi S4 Quattro.
I have ran the Rosso’s Before. Fantastic tyre. Tyre is rated as a AO spec.
Car is driven hard! Took the car to Europe 175-180 mph and no issues.
Tyres have been on 3 years and have covered a very hard 4500 miles. Still on 5mm.

Great tyre.

Trying to pick the very best winter tyre? Watch this!
Given 75% while driving a Jaguar XK8 (225/40 R19 W) on mostly country roads for 6,000 easy going miles
Rossos were fitted to my XK8 when I bought it 2nd hand 6 or 7 years ago, with uneven wear and since I only drive the car in the summer I decided to change the tyres only as each of them approach the legal limit, so have stuck with the Rossos. My overall impression is pretty good, with decent grip and feel, although anyone who has driven an XK8 will know that whilst they ride superb, steering “feel” isn’t a strong suit, regardless of the type of tyre being used!

My only slight complaint is the high-ish levels of road noise, which in such a quiet car as an XK8 can become a little annoying. If I ever get to a point of having to replace both tyres on the same axle then I would probably go for a Goodyear, Dunlop or even an Avon alternative.

Given 43% while driving a Audi TT S (225/35 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
My review is for Pirelli P Zero Rosso tyres which came fitted to my 2012 Audi TTS Roadster.
The tyres in general are just ok EXCEPT in the wet.
I've noticed that when negotiating a most smaller roundabouts in the wet there is a SERIOUS grip problem.
In the situation described upon leaving a smaller roundabout (not Mini roundabouts) even under moderate acceleration in the wet the front wheels spin causing the TC light to flicker.
Its quite easy to get the front wheels to spin in the wet in a straight line.
I also drive a 1.4 Turbo petrol Zafira on budget tyres and Its much better in this respect, in fact I've never experienced anything like this on any other front wheel drive car. Remember, my Audi is a Quattro with 4WD !
i feel the dry handling is also a little underwhelming.
The tread on these tyres is almost as new as they were fitted by the Audi with the previous owner very recently.
Its worth noting also that the problem I've described will arise after a lot of driving when the tyres are warm although I've owned the car since last September so my experience has been in the Autumn and this Winter in colder conditions.

Given 81% while driving a Skoda Yeti 4 x 4 (225/50 R17 V) on mostly country roads for 40 spirited miles
Fitted as new to my Yeti 4x4 L&K 170BHP these tyres have been superb. But they have done 40,000 miles and show about 3mm of tread left and whilst the car feels as though its on rails in the dry, and it performs well in most other circumstances I have opted to try Michelin CrossClimates as I believe these more contemporary tyres would suit my needs better. I am trusting the many reviews to b a true reflection. Don't underestimate these brilliant Pirellis if your driving is spirited and predominately on the dry. .
