Pirelli Cinturato Strada All Season Tire Review & Rating
New for 2016, the Pirelli Cinturato Strada All Season touring tire combines responsive handling and year round all-season traction with a smooth quiet ride and longer wearing treadlife. Built for all types of coupes, luxury sedans and other performance vehicles, the Pirelli Strada AS is available only through Discount Tire.
The tread pattern is very similar to the Pirelli P7 All Season Plus, and its performance is equal to that best-selling model as well. An all-season tread compound is matched to an asymmetric tread pattern for dependable dry, wet and winter traction. It also enhances handling and cornering stability, which we have found is among the best of any touring all-season tire.
One of the few differences between the two tires is that the Strada All Season has a much denser sipe pattern around the tread. These biting edges, along with wider circumferential grooves, give it the ability to effectively grip the road on wet road surfaces and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. These sipes also provide for better traction on snow covered pavement, something this model does pretty well overall.
Pirelli uses an optimized pitch sequence on this tire that dramatically reduces road noise, while angled lateral grooves and the tire’s tread design are created to deliver a smooth comfortable ride.
You’ll find a wide range of 16-19 inch sizes that come in either an H or V-speed rating. Pirelli backs the Cinturato Strada All Season with a 70K mile tread warranty.
- Outstanding dry and wet traction
- Handling and stability are at the top of the touring all-season class
- Longer lasting treadlife
- 70K mile tread warranty
- Nothing that stands out
It’s rare when you find a touring all-season tire that ticks all the right boxes in what you look for in a higher performing tire, but the Pirelli Strada AS does just that. It offers similar performance to the best-selling Cinturato P7 All Season Plus, which we rank as one of the best tires on the market today.
You may have noticed in fact that the Strada AS (which is a private label model that is offered exclusively through Discount Tire), looks almost identical to the P7 All Season Plus. There are a few differences in the tread pattern, but for the most part they are the same. The Strada carries a 700 UTQG rating, which is higher than the P7, and that is really the only major difference.
Handling and cornering stability on the Strada is nothing short of amazing. It gives you the on-center feeling that most tires are not capable of doing. Point the tires in the direction you want to go and enjoy the ride. In addition, tread life has shown to be impressive at this point. If that changes we will update in the future.
Overall, without sounding like a Pirelli sales rep, this is simply an excellent tire in this category. If you’re looking for a set of tires that will literally transform the way your vehicle handles and drives, the Strada AS is one of those tires. Highly recommended.
