Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus Tire Review & Rating

The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus is fairly obvious in its intent: it is a tire dedicated to providing maximum performance and efficiency throughout all four seasons.

Designed specifically for the drivers of coupes, sedans, and minivans, P4 Four Seasons + tires are designed to provide superior traction on dry, wet, and wintry roads. Performing consistently and reliably across all four seasons is typically quite a lot to ask of your tires. However, Pirelli insists that its optimization of the tread design makes all of this possible.

Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus Tire Review

Pirelli utilizes a silica-rich tread compound in the makeup of this model to go along with their new and innovative technology. The goal of which is to reduce the rolling resistance while also increasing bad-weather traction that you would expect from an otherwise fully dedicated snow tire.

The tire’s molded symmetric pattern and continuous center rib around the tread provide enhanced handling and stability, both around town and at highway speeds. This tread design gives the tire a little more on-center feel as well.

Pirelli has added two central, longitudinal grooves in the tire that are designed to expel water in all weather conditions. An independent tread and shoulder block design also improves handling response on both wet and dry road conditions.

Of course, Pirelli hasn’t forgotten ride comfort on the P4 Four Seasons Plus. A completely redesigned casing profile to go with twin steel belts that are spirally wrapped with nylon help in delivering a more comfortable and quiet ride. This setup also gives the tire added strength and durability. Pirelli backs this tire with a 90K mile tread warranty.

Pros

  • Consistent all-season traction and handling
  • Smooth and comfortable ride without all the road noise
  • Treadwear

Cons

  • Tire can be hard to find

Overall Thoughts

It’s obvious that Pirelli has set out to improve on the original P4 Four Seasons design, and for the most part they have succeeded. Due to their unique engineering and design, the tires deliver consistent traction and handling in all road conditions. What’s more, the ride is smooth and comfortable as you would expect from Pirelli.

While winter drivability is better than you’ll find on many touring all-season tires, it still lacks the type of performance you get from a dedicated winter tire. We’ve also heard from a couple of drivers that the tires have a tendency to collect smaller rocks in the tread grooves, although to be fair this seems to be an isolated issue. The other thing we’ve noticed is that finding this tire can be a little more difficult depending on the size you need.

Overall, Pirelli’s P4 Four Seasons Plus tires perform as advertised, both in performance and comfort.
