Pirelli - summer tyres 2023 - market overview, tests, reviews
We have selected a few Pirelli summer tyres for detailed review based on their recent test results. Our chosen tyres include the Pirelli Cinturato P7 C2, Pirelli P ZERO, and the Pirelli P ZERO PZ4.
The Pirelli Cinturato P7 C2 is a touring tyre that has received notable attention in recent tests. This model replaced the previous generation Pirelli P7 Cinturato. In the 2023 tests conducted by Autoklub ČR, Tyre Reviews, and ADAC, Pirelli Cinturato P7 C2 ranked 4th, 2nd, and 17th, respectively. ADAC praised the tyre for its excellent performance on dry roads and good efficiency, but noted some weaknesses on wet roads and in the environmental balance. In the 2021 tests conducted by Autobild, this tyre ranked 7th and 2nd in different dimensions.
Pirelli P ZERO is another summer tyre featuring in multiple test results. In the 2020 tests conducted by AutoMotorSport, Autobild, ADAC, Gute-Fahrt, and Autobild, this tyre ranked 4th, 25th, 12th, 7th, and 8th, respectively. The tyre received commendable ratings for its performance in various dimensions, and it is made in Italy.
Lastly, the Pirelli P ZERO PZ4 is an ultra-high-performance tyre that has performed well in multiple tests. In the 2023 tests conducted by SportAuto, Autobild, Autobild, and Autozeitung, the P ZERO PZ4 ranked 5th, 3rd, 11th, and 4th, respectively. SportAuto praised the tyre for its excellent control, steering, and balance on wet surfaces, as well as its high grip levels in curves. However, they criticized its weak wet braking and increased rolling resistance. Autobild appreciated the tyre for its convincing handling on both dry and wet roads, precise steering, balanced dynamics, high grip levels, and short braking distances on both wet and dry surfaces. The negative aspects noted were its increased rolling resistance and average comfort.
Overall, the selected Pirelli summer tyres offer good performance based on the recent tests. While the Cinturato P7 C2 is tailored towards touring, the P ZERO and P ZERO PZ4 cater to those seeking high-performance tyres with excellent handling and grip.
