Latest Tyre Test Results

2023 Tyre Reviews Winter Tyre Test - 6th of 13 tyres

  • Positive - Great balance in the dry, good wet handling, best aquaplaning resistance on test, good grip in all snow tests.
  • Negative - Average result in dry braking, average comfort levels, higher than average rolling resistance.
  • Overall - The Pirelli Cinturato Winter 2 was another fun tyre to drive, with the best aquaplaning resistance on test, but sadly like the Giti its rolling resistance was amongst the highest of the group. It did however have more grip in the snow and wet than the Giti, hence finishing a spot higher.

Top 3 Pirelli Cinturato Winter 2 Reviews

Given 86% while driving a SEAT Leon (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
I bought this tyre last year after suggestions from my tyre dealer. I was looking for a good tyre for cold and rainy winters with some occasional trip to the mountains. These tyres were highly satisfactory in terms of dry and wet performance, plus they felt great in terms of subjective road feedback and handling. Car seems attached to the ground in all situations. Downsides are higher noise and fuel consumption, but I say this with respect to my summer tyres, which may not be a fair comparison. I only tried them on snow once and they were fine.

Brand new, to replace my old Pirelli Sottozero 3, come at the end of their Life. Dry: These Cinturato Winter 2 are proposed as touring tyres, and so they do: compared to the more sporty precursors, the road feedback appears rougher and less direct. Likewise, handling in the dry is poorer, less precise, however decent for a touring tyre. Breaking in the dry appears on the other hand fairly good, with more than reasonable stopping distances. Wet: drivability in the wet is not too bad. Wet handling is decent, breaking is good as well as aquaplaning resistance, both in the straight line and in the corner. Snow: Compared to the Sottozero 3, the performance of these Cinturato Winter 2 on snow is improved: either traction, handling and braking are significantly ameliorated, providing in challenging conditions of snow, snow/mud or snow/rain a greater sense of safety. Ice: Although not nordic or studded tires, these Cinturato Winter 2 do fairly good with the ice, letting you get off on it, as long as you drive with due prudence. Internal noise: These tires make themselves felt, as expected, especially during high-speed driving. Fuel consumption and wear: in the middle for a quality winter tyre. Price: high-priced but less expensive compared to many competing models of other premium brands.

Given 79% while driving a Renault (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 12,000 spirited miles
It’s the best winter tire I’ve had so far great wet and snow traction also the tire is very quiet (test say otherwise but on my car this tire is quiet) big downfall is the wear of the tire after 1 winter the tires lost almost half of their tread . Last winter was weak so maybe that’s because but I’ve heard that pirelli don’t last that long. Other than that great tire
