These tyres are a bit expensive but it's worth it for the safety, comfort and durability.
In wet or windy conditions, the tyres still maintain good grip on the asphalt.
Slowing down and stopping is also smoother with these tyres.
In terms of comfort, they're good with being an extra padding for the bumps on the road, which enhances a smooth ride.
With the price also comes with its durability.
These tyres can last up to 4-5 years before another tyre change is needed (if you drive calmly, of course).
Good value for excellent tyres!
Quality and Budget
I am very impressed by this tyres. I recently fitted four tyres on my Camry and it runs very good in wet condition. Also the price is good compare to other brands. The only problem I can see is a little bit noisy in concrete surface, especially on the highway.
Very good in the wet.
These tyres are amazing in the wet.
They do tend to wear a little quicker then most other brands ,but the extra grip is worth it.
They are not to loud on most road surfaces and required very little weight to balance each wheel.
Most tyres are good in the dry , but the performance range excell in slippery conditions.
Worth the money.
Great long-lasting, hard wearing tyre
Great tyres, had them on the car for ages and still going strong. I always choose Pirelli for my cars because I know they are durable, reliable, safe and competitively priced. Tyre wear varies with type of car and usage however 70,000 to 120,000 has been my experience over the years.
A little on the expensive side but well worth it.
I currently have set of these tires on my Hyundai i30. These tires have excellent performance (wet and dry) & have literally saved my bacon more times than I can count during emergency braking (not my fault more often that not). The tires are quiet and durable - my current set are due for replacement but I've easily done 60,000+ kms on them.
These tires are above average in price but all can I say is that it's saved me more than enough times to make up for its extra cost.
Great tyre and peace of mind
more stability on the road and great hanling, good wearing tyre and no road noise, i purchased these as i have had them previously and couldn't fault them, a good piece of mind for the family, they have great handling in the wet and very durable, i would rather pay a bit more for quality
Definitely the tyre of choice for my Peugeot 307
Just put on my 3rd set of P7 Cinturatos (1st was actually the original P7 variant) and wouldn't choose anything else for the 307 (2004 XSE hatch).
Grip is great dry and wet, very quiet.... just cannot hear them at all and no squeal even if pushed a little.
The only caveat is when they are almost due for replacement, you can get some wheel spin when starting off from the lights uphill in the wet when the front wheels are on a white line... although I think this would happen regardless of the tyre.
Wear is interesting..... last time, I left th...
Significantly reduced my fuel consumption
I have been suffering from the bumpy ride of 215/45/R17 stock wheels and tyres, recently downsized to aftermarket 16 wheels with Pirelli Cinturato P7 205/55/R16 tyres and the fuel consumption dropped from 5.6/100km to amazing 4.8. The ride feels much more comfortable than before. Havent tried the wet grip yet but the dry grip is good enough for me.
Long life, excellent grip
Was recommended by a Subaru mechanic to go for these after the OEM Yokohama 'Geosquealers' wore out at around 80k. To replace with same would have cost around $295 a corner, and in my opinion not worth the money. Have now clocked up 180k, so over 100k on this set, with probably about 10-15k to go, so wear has been excellent, and they are very good in the wet. I run them at 36psi, so a little over spec, slightly harder ride, but better cornering. Don't really think they are noisy as wife's car is a Mazda 3, and all others are quiet in comparison. A couple of punctures, but that is about expected, repaired fine. Overall very good tyre, excellent value for money.
went from Michelin to P7,
Very good road feel, comfortable on the road, very nice tire, hope to try them in the wet. Got them from Tire Right, Not happy, they inflated them too 400kpa an not to the standard max 250kpa. I would buy them again. I am going to put them on my wife Honda when the tires wears out.
The feel on the road an the feed back going around corners.
Not sure where they are made?
Bought these in January, but so far I'm seriously impressed with the way it just grips and grips, both in dry and in wet conditions. They are also very quiet tyres. Admittedly, my experience with tyres are somewhat limited, but the Pirelli Cinturato P7 is by far the best tyre I've driven on.
Grip, ride comfort, low noise
Marginally increased fuel consumption: rolling resistance not as good as on Eagle NCT5
Questions & Answers
I am a newbie to this and seek suggestions to run-flat tyres, if you can advice on them.
I have to buy new run-flat tires for my Lexus IS 300 (225/45/17). The tires that came fitted on the car were Bridgestone ER033 (Costco selling at $190) and they crashed out at under 30k kms. My searching around has given me options to look at Michelin PS4 (expensive $260/- in the list), Pirelli P 7 (less expensive). My drive is mostly within city. I am not savvy with these things so asking for. Any suggestions will help me.
Hi Asehgal. I am not qualified to answer your question. I bought the Pirellis because of their wet weather handling. They are softer and handle very well on wet roads but the have a shorter life-span compared to other tyres. To me handling is more important than life-span - Tyres are your life as they connect the car to the road surface.
What tire pressure for 235x45x18 p7 please?
The pressure is specific to a vehicle. So if you look on the driver door (where the door shuts) there should be a chart that tells you what pressure on which tyre
