Pirelli P-Zero Rossos
Member Name: jamiem1983
Advantages: Excellent Grip in the wet and the dry
Disadvantages: bit more expensive than other brand named tyres
The Pirelli p-zero rosso is a very good tyre. I have had Pirelli tyres before in the shape of the P6000 and I have to say I wasn't impressed so I had some reservations when I looked at the Pirelli range again. I was reassured by the tyre company that I was buying them from that the P-Zero was a totally different tyre and made for a totally different purpose than the P6000.
So I had the tyres fitted let them bed in over 100-200 miles. Once the tyres were properly scrubbed in, I found that the recommendations had some truth to them; in all honesty I was very pleasantly surprised just how good these tyres are.
I have since had this tyre on both of my performance cars, both of which were 300+bhp RWD cars where grip really was very important.
Some tyres I have had including the Toyo Proxies were good in the dry but not in the rain and vice-versa.
The Pirelli P-Zero Rossos amazingly managed both. They provide amazing dry performance as well as very good wet performance. I have used these tyres for fast road applications as well as track days and every time they never fail to amaze me. They also managed some excellent launches on the ¼ mile.
Overall the entire tyre is one I will be using for many years to come on all my performance cars. These opinions / results were based on 235/45/17 tyres.
The P-Zero Rossos are and excellent medium compound tyre which means they last longer than all out sports tyres but provide enough grip for the most spirited driver. Road noise is also very low, as is tyre roar that you experience from harder compound tires.
The Pirelli P-Zero Rosso tyre can be purchased for around £90 per tyre (based on 235/45/17 sizes).
Summary: Excellent performance tyre, will continue to fit these to any performance cars i own.
