Purchased set of 4 Tyres (225x45x17) Pirelli Cinturato P7 AO 91Y from MyCar Tyre & Auto on black Friday for incredible price of $356. This tyres is Made in Japan! Previous tyres on my car is Pirelli Dragon. This tyres is much more quiet and fell like you car is glue down to the road. My car is VW Golf MK7. Recommended
I had Dunlop SP 200s on my Toyota Corolla and they were dangerous on wet roads. The Pirelli's are softer and handle so much better when cornering on wet roads - particularly polished road surfaces.
I will certainly buy Pirellis again.
Great Grip to Wear balance - 245/40 R18 97Y
My XR6 (see vehicle review below) has new rubber - 56,000 kms from the old set. (I drive briskly, I don't dither)
The previous set of tyres from the previous owner were also Pirelli P7's but the running pressures were set at 34psi Fronts and 30psi Rears (by the book) and the wear patterns were shocking. The fronts showed hints of canvas on insides, excessive wear on outsides with lots of tread left in the middle section. The Rears showed excessive edge wear and again lots of tread in middle section.
My last set of P7's (old set at 56,000 kms) I...
On my third pair
I've either had Pirellis or Continentals on my Mercedes V8. These are great tyre for the front, grippy in the wet or dry and reasonably long lasting. Just travelled from sydney to Brisbane and back, they're comfortable and quiet too.
Purchased in February 2019.
Purchased 4 Pirelli Cinturato late last year, and find them to be the best tyres for a passenger car I have ever had. Grip in the wet is outstanding and ride comfort excellent. Thoroughly recommend to everyone. Handling also Excellent on a big car. I drive a BF2 Fairlane Ghia, best tyres ever.
Quietness my priority
I went from 16 in with Pirelli P1s to 18 in with P7s (07 Honda Accord Euro). Didn't think any tyre could be as quiet as the P1s but the P7s are. I really don't think there's much/any difference in performance (dry, wet, braking, cornering) in the top brands; they are all too long in the business to be anything but good. So for me the issue is noise ('road' or 'cabin' noise). I'll willingly sacrifice a few 1000 km (if necessary) for a quiet ride. The P7s look and feel good and sound ... well, they don't (almost don't) sound (though I recognise that tyre noise is relative and subjective - not definitive - and varies with road surfaces). I love 'em for my idea of quietness - as well as everything else.
Fantastic tire - would get again
Done approx 23,000 kms on the Pirelli P7 Cinturato. They are quiet, but have good overall performance. They seem to be quite durable and long wearing, and even after this many kms, seem to be in good shape. In terms different makes and models I've had in the past, I have been most happiest with these.
Excellent touring tyre, car tends to roll more after the accelerator is taken off. Full economy is the same as my previous Pirelli P Zero's The Cinturato P7's tend to be more durable and longer wearing. Handling is excellent and wet weather performance is also great. I got wider tyres this time as my car has a lot of torque and was breaking traction a lot.

Run Flat.. it works
In overall, this tyre is really good. Wet and dry conditions, tyre response really well. Always feel comfortable and sure about the grip. Breaking, cornering response is perfect. Didn't have any issues for over 5 years of using these tyres.
I had run-flat tyres on my car from the day 1. Since I had no issues, when I was replacing the tyres, thought of change it to normal ones. But again because my car doesn't have a spare tyre, I went with run-flat again. My decision was worth. Just two months later I had a punctu...
Beautiful to drive on
Very comfy tyres to drive on, it almost feels like you’re driving on clouds. If you’re looking for a reliable tyre in the wet and dry, and something you can really enjoy, then this is your tyre. The only downfall is that I wished they lasted a little longer, but let’s be honest, that’s probably just my driving.
Surprisingly great tyres
I had these tyres on my car since brand new (235/40R19). To be honest, I was annoyed my car didn't come with Pirelli P Zero or other "High Performance" tyres, considering my car has relatively powerful engine.
To my surprise, these tyres are really great. Very solid grip in dry and wet, not noisy at all and very comfortable on the road.
I have 18000 KM on them so far, and they still have plenty of tread. I believe they will go beyond 40 or 50K KM.
I maintain my tyres properly (check pressure, rotate, etc).
I would refit these tyres again on my car

Fantastic! Great quality and look hectic!
Good handling, no road noise. Affordable and well suited for my M B Sedan. Worth the small additional expense for peace of mind and safety. Got Kmart to price match with tyres online with a free rotation every 6 months. You can also get these in run flat if your car's wheels are suitable.

Good tyres affordable price
Durable tyres which I have been using for years for my BMW 520D. It is quite affordable at $146.36 for each tyre. I would also recommend you order these tyres through tyroola as they have quite competitive prices. They are durable and are great in wet weather, and are reliable.
Upgraded my 15inch rims to 16inch an put these tyres on them. from the moment I started driving down the road and turned a corner I felt an immediate inprovement in responsiveness, smoothness, handling and also little to no road noise.. Tyre performance at high speeds are fantastic and perform well.. Haven't tried wet weather yet as I juat had these installed earlier today.. But having used these tyres in the past in a different vehicle, they were amazing tyres.. Personally they are the best bang for buck..
You won't regret purchasing these tyres.
Standout wet weather performance
Overkill on a 2002 Mitsubishi Magna wagon and dry weather tyre performance on a family car is much of a muchness at speeds plod and passengers can bear but the P7s were massively better in the wet than original spec RE92s and the Michelins before these. Highly recommended if you want to spend the money. Of course, for this car it probably makes more sense to get a perfectly reasonable $100 tyre and slow down a bit when it's wet
Best Tyres I've owned!
I was out to find a particularly quiet tyre after enduring several years of extremely noisy Bridgestones on my Tiguan (2010-2014). In the 3rd year I put Pirelli tyres on (I don't remember which type) and I can't begin to tell you the difference they made. I wasn't going to endure the same problem with my 2014 Golf and was recommended the Pirelli Cinturato P7. Not only the noise has considerably reduced, but the road handling is awesome and they have hardly worn in 36,000k of driving. They are well worth the money. I'm so confident in these ...that my daughter is picking up a new Golf in a few days and it's booked the same day to swap the supplied tyres to the Pirelli Cinturato P7. The dealer has his opinion of course but like they say....When you're on a good thing, stick to it!
I purchased 5 Pirelli Cinturato P7 tyres for my 2011 VW Passat about 7 months ago to replace the original Continentals.
So far they have performed extremely well under all conditions and the handling is just as good as the previous OEM tyres. The Conties were good but the wear was more rapid than I expected. I think I managed about 31K kms before I had to swap the most worn tyres. The rears lasted a little longer and if one drove more smoothly around corners, the wear was less.
The Pirellis don't show any abnormal wear so far and I'm push...ing them quite hard. The ride is very confortable and they are quiet. Rolling resistance is minimal and fuel economy remains great. Of course having the tyres inflated to the correct pressures helps here. Happy to recommend these tyres for my type of vehicle.
Why weren't these installed on my car from the factory. I really enjoy the ride with my new Pirelli's.
I researched the hell out of tyres before deciding on the Cinturatos for my Suzuki Kizashi Sport. They are much better than the Yokohama's that come with the car from new. I have since recommended these tyres to a friend of mine which had a set installed on his car.
Definitely a smoother and quieter ride. good handling in the wet. The P7's have a good reputation so go for it if your wanting great sport tyres.
I had these on my new Alfa and they went for 45k city driving. I always felt well stuck to the road and confident with great traction. Why change something that is going well and on top of that these tyres look great. I bought them from tyresales at an awesome price. Very happy
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
