Very good tyre but not for Australian roads...

published

Have used P1 for many years and I am very happy with them.

The problem is not the tyre, but the crappy Aussie roads that are appalling! And most people don't understand that! (they're far worst than south European roads back in the 70's) :(

Purchased in December 2018.

Poor wear on Australian roads

published

They were fitted on my wifes 2018new vw passat alltrack wolfsburg we only got 20,000kms before they all wore out on the inside one down to the metal and needed replacing. Soft European tyres don,t last long on Australian roads. I would consider my wife to be a very modest drive so very disappointed in the wear life of these tyres. I own a large transport company and if these were truck tyres I would be broke.

Purchased in April 2018.

Pirelli are great!

published

Best tyres i have bought.
They stick to the road in the wet like nothing else I've owned.
Long wearing and quite inexpensive compared to others. Hardly any noise and great fuel economy too.
I use them on my old 98 Mercedes-Benz c200 and if I can still get them when they wear out, they're going to be purchased again.

Would not recommend!

published

had this tyre for exactly 12 months and less than 13.000km use and both the rear tyres went bold....
car is only 3 years old (audi Q3 50.000km on clock)
no one could explain why... car is all wheel drive with even distribution. had to pay for 2 new tyres,
Pirelli took tyres away for examination to see if manufacturing fault... still waiting.
will never go pirelli again

Alright price but wears out so fast

published

Had all four tyres changed about 2 years ago and went to the mechanic last week and was told that one of them needs changing already. I don't even do 10000km a year. My old Yokohama ones are much better.

They say its good for wet conditions but I can't really tell that much of a difference.

Great tyres

published

Purchased a set of p1’s for my Mazda 6 and am very happy. The tyres are quiet and provide great grip and stability in all conditions. They do have large water grooves giving me great confidence in wet conditions. They also look pretty sharp if that’s important to you. Worth the money for sure in my opinion.

Good Chinese made Pirelli Cinturato P1 tyre

published

Pirelli Cinturato P1 tyre is no longer made in Italy instead it has been made in China for a while. This tyre maintains its premium quality. It is not only turning and burning well but also good breaking in both dry- and wet-weather. I'm very happy with its excellent grip, and longevity.

Great grip for a great price

published

The tyres are very durable lasting for many years. They have great grip in both dry and wet weather. Very happy with them and would recommend. The price is cheap however you get a good quality product. Have been using these tyres for many years and cannot complain or fault them. Do yourself a favour and get a pair, or two.

good grip, cheap price

published

tyres last for a very long time, a few years before they started to make noise when braking, great grip in the wet, well priced, pirelli make plenty of tyre varieties to suit your budget. Car bushes had to be replaced sooner than the tyres themselves! will buy again !

Very happy

published

Used all rounders - terrible, Goodyears, nothing special. Got Pirelli Cinturato P1, they are very good.
Ford falcon wagon now handles better than ever, handles like a sedan and not a wagon.
Great traction, corners very well, tyres give great feedback from road. Traction in wet is as good as I ever experienced.
Ride fells comfortable and not noisey either. They cost more but in this case happily you get what you pay for, they are worth the extra money.
Price wise, if you shop around often you will find these tyres at a better price. Will certainly get these tyres in future again. Pirelli state the tyres are not rubber but some other material, be it made from whatever, I am very happy with these tyres.

This is a good tyre for Toyota corolla

published

Recently changed tyres on my Toyota Corolla 2004.. I bought it from Tempe tyres after getting quotes from so many dealers, their price was the lowest...tyres seems perfectly fine in my car, less noisy and good in wet conditions.. which I expect from brand like pirelli...I would highly recommend this tyre for everyday driving..., please buyers do research and ask for the quote from different dealers before buying, I found there’s a huge difference in price...cheers

Pirelli tyres A1

published

I purchase a set of Pirelli P1 tyres for my 2006 ford focus hatch and as soon as they were fitted I noticed the ride was much more comfortable and cornering was nice, I had to wait to see how they handled in the wet and a month later down came the rain, and to my surprise the tyres were just as good in the wet and sitting on 100ks freeway driving was faultless no shaking and very quite for freeway driving, so I will be buying Pirelli tyres from now on.

Excellent tyre with great grip and km

published

I had these 195x65x15 on my toyota corolla. Travelled just over 70,000km when replaced.
Tyres had Excellent grip on wet and dry road. Gives a very comfortable ride. Noise level only started to notice after about 60,000km on the courser tar surfaces. Will purchase the tyres again. Felt very safe driving with these tyres.

Good value for money

published

Got these from Kmart tyre and auto using their price match guarantee.
I immediately noticed the improved grip. I guess that's always the case with new tyres though. Now driven ~10,00km on them and they have shown minimal signs of wear. I mainly drive on freeways, although do also drive in the inner city and on country dirt roads. The ride is comfortable and the noise level isn't too bad. I haven't had any noticeable performance issues in wet, dry or on dirt roads.
I'd happily recommend these to my friends and family and if they are still around when I replace my tyres I would use them again.

Sooooo Noisy!

published

We recently brought a VW Golf with these tyre fitted. They are really nice and smooth on motorway quality tarmac but as soon as you hit the coarse chip... you need ear plugs, I really cant get over how noisy they are. I understand that these are an entry level quality Pirelli tyre, but c'mon Pirelli, have some pride in your brand name, the road noise from these tyres is atrocious.

I didn't notice any extra noise from these tyres when compared to others on my 2013 Toyota Corolla 4 door sedan, but then again I always drive with my windows closed and the AC on.
These tyres give a very comfortable ride and grip the road well in wet and dry conditions as well as lots of KM and I will buy these tyres again.

Hello Swaran, no the Pirelli tyre is surprisingly quite on the freeway when I purchased mine I thought they would be quite driving around my local area but after having the tyres on for 4 or 5 days I drove on the freeway for about 1 hour 30 mins and i was totally surprised with the lack of noise and the handling of my car with the new Pirelli tyres. I Hope this helps you Swaran.
