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
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
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
Pirelli has delivered one of the better touring all-season tires in its class with
the P7 All Season Plus. They've utilized the latest in tire technology and materials to manufacture a well
performing tire that provides a very smooth and quiet ride.
Dry traction and braking is very good on this model, as is cornering grip and
stability throughout the speed range. Steering is precise and responsive as well. You feel more confidence when
driving on this tire, not to mention the nice comfortable ride it provides.
About the area where we could see improving is adding a little extra wet grip when
driving at higher speeds. Beyond that, snow traction is another positive for this model. Tread life has been
another plus for this P7, 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.
