    Top 3 Pirelli P Zero Reviews

    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

    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.

    Achieved 10k miles legally. In all but the most extreme acceleration these tyres handled the power of my E63s. Handling is fantastic, wet grip hard to fault especially when car is balanced and not provoked. Not noisy enough to spoil the sound of the engine :-)

    Given 54% while driving a Mercedes Benz CLS 220 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
    The tyre is fine, and okay, however it is pretty useless in the wet. Or...even dangerous. I have a 2016 CLS 220d, sport package. I've used it with an average 245 wide winter tyre. The grip was fine, fuel was fine. I just put these on back(the car is a fresh buy, but the rear tyres had 1 season already on them) Front tyres...i've bought hankook s1 evo3. Setup is: 255 r18 s1 evo3 fron 285 r18 Pirellies at the back. car is fine in the dry conditions. However the back is a bit wobbly...but the car is 1800kg, so i guess its fine. But in the wet. HORRIBLE. The rears are useless. For searching for the limits... In a wet normal road (far from filled with water, just wet) And the car was trying to driftin in a simple straight line hard acceleration. Like I'M having a drift car. Elcectronics were on so there was no problems, but what thell... its just a 400nm diesel with oversized huge rears...should be 0 issues, or some minor slipping. but not drifting. 1 week later i was having a hard corner to get on the highway. It was same wet, i was having some fu, so reached the corner with 55kph. (an average car with fine tíres could have it with 65-70 easily) I did not accelerate, just wanted to check the corner. The fronts were gripped like heaven, but the back. OMG. they lost their grip, exactly like on an icy road in the winter. I've managed to handle the unexpected huge drift/spin since im used to this; and the electronics helped as well. But it was a horrible experience... This tyre cannot handle wet. this tyre thinks that wet is ice. :D The loss of grip is not progressing. Its like fine-fine-okay- and once something more swift happening: instantly loses all the grip. Tyre pressure is fine in all of the tyres. The Hankook fronts are like glue in the same situations. The replaced front-back 245 snow oriented winter ones were much stable as well. 285 rears on a 1.8ton car, with underpowered engine should be fairly good weapon in the corners, no matter what is the weather... Summary: Please dont buy this crap, if you want to survive wet conditions.

    Given 67% while driving a Volkswagen Golf GTI MK7 (225/35 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
    I have recently bought a 2016 Golf GTi which came with these fitted and they are not far off new. In the dry and warm the grip is excellent, you can really lean on them and feedback is good. They are also acceptably quiet and comfortable. However they are lacking in the wet. Damp cold conditions reveals particularly poor traction and grip. They are ok in warmer wet conditions but don't cope particularly well with standing water. Overall an acceptably good tyre if you live in a warmer climate but it hasn't got a balanced range of abilities like a newer Michelin or Goodyear equivalent.

    I had Pirelli P Zero fitted to the front axle 235/40/18 After only 4000 and 3.25 months there were scrubbed. Diabolical I could not believe it, a so called premium tyre wearing out in no time at all. Never again

    Given 70% while driving a Jaguar XKR (285/30 R20) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
    On the upside lots of grip, rollover a penny and I could tell you whether it is heads or tails, it's the Jaguar specified OEM tyre for the early XKR and it does a good job. That is assuming the P Zero itself is the same as 25 years back, tech moves on and OEM tyres aren't necessarily the same as the same model aftermarket ones. On the downside road noise is loud enough to be distracting, it's about as comfortable as a hobnailed clog, seems to take some time to warm up and whilst cornering grip seems to be very good in the wet I'm less convinced about it's grip in acceleration. Wet roads result in lots of traction control under heavyish acceleration. Though no issues with braking. On the major downside... I cannot detect any advance warning that the limit of grip is approaching or reached. No squeal or feel, just grip, grip, grip, hedge. I'm currently running mine at the comfort setting of 28 psi as the XKR just doesn't feel like a GT car at normal recommended pressures. Ride is too harsh otherwise, tramlining too frequent to be an enjoyable. Though at 28psi I worry about potholes with those 20" rims on. I've just bought some 18" rims so will try something else on those, save the 20s and the Pzeros for a track day or two and put them back in when the weather warms up a bit. It is afterall a summer tyre. Note however that I live in rural Wales, so dry days come about one afternoon per year, the roads are often potholed and I probably haven't got the best out of the tyres in relatively cold conditions. However on motorway runs where you merely want an easy life the tramlining is an annoying issue. Reducing the pressure helps but doesn't eliminate this. You'd be hard pushed to reach the tyre's limits on back roads so long as they're warm, though on the sort of twisty A roads which epitomise much of Wales finding the limits results in a trip to the body shop after being assaulted by the undergrowth. So thus far it seems like a strange fit for a Grand Tourer but will add a review in the supposed summer to see whether it's merely not mong friendly.

    The older they get the noisier they become. Lasted for 40.000km in 3 years. Very good dry grip, but they could have better wet grip. These tires will be my second choice.

    Given 30% while driving a Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake 1.4 TSI eHybrid (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
    These came factory-fitted to my Arteon Shooting Brake 1.4 eHybrid, and are being replaced by the lease company at 8,000 miles, as I have no confidence in them in cold, wet conditions... Let's start with the good, they're quiet, comfortable and have massive rim protection - good for 19" diamond cut alloys with low profile tyres! The hybrid Arteon is a big and heavy lump (just over 1.8 tons) and in the dry it grips very well, sticking in corners more than a car of its size and weight should. I can't comment on wear, as they've only been on the car for 8k miles, but had 6mm tread at 7.5k miles, so will consider that as pretty good. I'm on the fence with regards to braking; they've always stopped the car, but with a bit of weaving and wandering, and the stopping distance is a lot longer than in my old car, but that was a much lighter Octavia vRS 4x4...which always slowed down in an arrow-straight line. Now the bad... When I first got the car, I thought the alignment might be out slightly, as the car wandered and tracked oddly, so had that checked when it was in for some warranty items. Apparently everything checked out fine, and I was told that I just needed to get used to the car. In the wet, they're just unpredictable - they feel like they have loads of grip whilst driving, but pull away from a junction and they can just light up and lose traction with a very light throttle, so feedback, in my opinion is non-existent. I've given them a rating of 3 for wet grip, just because I don't know if and when they're going to let go. The past couple of weeks have seen the temperature drop to low single digits in the UK, and yesterday I was coasting to a to a roundabout, saw that I could head on to it without stopping, accelerated gently and the front wheels just let go! We'd just had a heavy downpour, but the roads weren't flooded, and I'd gone at it gently...just to check it wasn't me, I came to another roundabout, and at about 20mph accelerated, with a little more gusto than before and the tyres lit up again! I have to point out that this was with the car set to pure EV mode - with a whopping 113bhp, and acceleration that couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding from VW's hybrid powertrain at my mercy, the last thing I'd expect is loss of traction in a straight line! As such, I called the lease company to air my concerns, and at their instruction, have it booked in to have Michelin Cross Climate 2 all-seasons fitted next week. It'll be interesting to see how these work out as I had the Cross Climate + fitted to my previous car for a couple of years (an Octavia vRS 4x4), and they saw me through all four seasons very well, feeling safe, dependable and comfortable in all conditions. To summarise, I think the P Zeros are a great tyre in dry, warm conditions - a proper summer tyre(!), but get them near the cold and wet and they transform into an unpredictable liability... As such, I'm sure the P Zeros are a brilliant choice for a fast toy that's only used in the summer months, but for an everyday mile-muncher used all year round, I can't recommend them at all.

    Fitted to 69 reg A4 - Tyres grip very well in most conditions. Tyres wear very quickly, 7-8k for fronts, 16k for rears. As wear progresses the grip deteriorates rapidly to the point of non deliberate wheel spinning at junctions and traffic lights, particularly bad in wet weather. Trying the Hankook now to see if its the car or tyres!

    The longevity factor is the only downside to these tires. 23K is about it before your at the bars. That is with only sporadic high performance driving. Fantastic grip wet or dry. Little noisy but I can live with that as these tires perform when asked to do so. Pricey but not as bad as Michelins with almost identical feel and stability. Putting a fresh set on this afternoon on a 911 4S. Excited to feel that confidence again when hitting the apex out of a tight corner.
