Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus Tire Review & Rating
The Cinturato P7 All Season Plus is Pirelli's newest touring all-season tire. Built for
drivers of coupes and sedans, this new P7 is engineered to provide year-round traction, higher fuel efficiency and
a longer tread life.
A silica based tread compound that maximizes treadwear, also contains unique polymers for lowering the rolling
resistance of the tire which result in better fuel efficiency. An optimized asymmetric 5-rib tread pattern and
wider shoulder blocks increase traction and cornering grip, while also enhancing overall stability.
Four wider circumferential grooves channel away water from under the tire and reduce the risk of hydroplaning on
rain covered road surfaces. Multiple siping around the tread give this tire added biting edges for increased
traction on snow or ice. Road noise is minimal while driving due in part to the optimized tread design, which is an
area that Pirelli has done a very good job at.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts for added strength and durability, as well as a polyester cord
body that provides more ride comfort. Sizes are available from 16 to 17 inches, with many more coming onto the
market in 2013. A 70,000 mile tread guarantee is also included on the P7 All Season Plus.
Excellent dry and wet traction
Cornering grip and stability is very good
Comfortable and quiet ride
Increased fuel efficiency
Long lasting tread life with a 70,000 mile warranty
Maybe just a little more ice handling
Since this P7 model only came onto the market in late 2012 there is not a lot of information on it from other
driver reviews and ratings. What we have found is that this is one of Pirelli's better all-season models. They've
utilized the latest in tire technology and materials to manufacture a well performing tire.
Dry and wet traction is very good on this model, as is cornering grip and stability throughout the speed range.
You feel more confidence when driving on this tire, not to mention the nice comfortable ride it provides. Snow
traction is another positive for this model, although we would like to see a little better braking performance on
icy road surfaces.
Tread life looks to be excellent, and with a 700 treadwear rating you can see why. Pirelli stands behind the
tire with a 70,000 mile guarantee. Overall, the tag line Pirelli uses on this tire says it all: "One Tire, Four
Seasons, No Compromises." We highly recommend it for an all-season tire.
The Cinturato P7 Plus comes with a 70,000 mile treadlife warranty. A one-year or first 2/32 inch of wear
guarantee on the tire's uniformity is also included.
Materials and workmanship are warranted for an unlimited number of years and includes first year or first 2/32
inch of wear free replacement. A prorated amount is given down to the final 2/32 inch of tread depth.
