Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus Tire Review & Rating

The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus is the company’s latest 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.


Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus Tire Review

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 20 inches, and with H or V-speed ratings. A 70,000 mile tread guarantee is also included on the P7 All Season Plus.

Pros

  • Excellent dry and wet traction
  • Cornering grip and stability is very good
  • Comfortable and quiet ride
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Treadlife is a plus

Cons

  • A little more grip on the ice

Overall Thoughts

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, providing you with added confidence behind the wheel. Finally, ride comfort is exceptional.

About the only area where we could see improving is adding a little extra grip when it comes to driving on icy roads. Light to moderate snow on the pavement is not a major issue for this model in most cases. Finally, tread life has been another plus for this P7 and one mentioned by many drivers in reviews as well. 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.” Simply stated, this is one of the best touring all-season tires on the market today.

  1. 2014 Subaru Forrester at 40,000 miles the tires are bald. rotated every 7,000 miles with oil change. Dealer will not honor warranty says the wear is normal. mostly highway miles at 60 mph. Would never purchase these again. good on dry pavement but sketchy on light snow and rain. very disappointed with these.

  2. I have these tires in my A3 and I’m experiencing the same issue. I have had to replace 2 of the tires because the belts came off one damaged my bumper and it has to be replaced. I had bulging out the side of my passenger front and now I have a third with the belt peeling issue again, that’s 4/4. These tires have cost me more than an inconvenience I have to replace the bumper and If I hadn’t noticed this new issue I most likely would have been stranded again. I also don’t like the idea of having different tires on my vehicle and I replaced the first two with the same (pirellis) but it looks like I am going to have to sell the two I installed a few months ago and replace them with the ones I’m installing tomorrow thanks to this site and the reviews.

  3. I have been using the Cinturato P7 all-season tires on my Ford Fusion hybrid for a couple of years now and they have been good except for one thing; I have had to replace every one of them because of broken belts on the tires. It didn’t happen all at once so I basically had to replace them one at a time. I hate to have more than one type of tire on my car at a time so as they broke I replaced them with the same tire. I am now on my second set and I am having to replace another tire because of broken belts. This tire still has about 7/64″ tread depth, but I am not expecting anything from warranty because they have not provided much help in the past.

  4. Very nice tires at first for ride, handling, quietness. After about 15k mi on my 2014 Avalon they got very noisy. Rotated every 5kmi and had an alignment when put on and one tire totally shot at 28kmi. The rest have maybe 10kmi left on them. My car is a Hybrid and gets very gentle use with mpg at 45.3mpg. Mostly smooth straight country roads and speeds 40-45mph.

    Terrible tires as far as longevity. unsafe after mid teen mile. Stay away from these. Never had any tire trouble with Michelins, will go with them again soon.

  5. I replaced my P7 A/S (not the Plus version) after 72000 miles, and there was still another 1-2/32′ trade depth remaining relative to the wear bar. Since these tires claim only 50.000 mile life, it’s odd that my application did so well. Perhaps it is because the tires were kept fully inflated (36 psi). They performed well over their life, but my only complaint is they transmitted every little bump and road imperfection into the cabin. My new Yokohama Avid Ascend GT tires are much better in this regard, even at 38 psi.

  6. I bought 4 new tires and within a 3 months (~2000 miles) one blew off (rear driver side) with a sudden whole on the outside (where the labels go).

    About 5 months after I bought the set of 4 (~2900 miles), a similar thing happen to an other one (front passenger side). Again with whole one the outside by the labels.

    One year later (~10,000 miles), there is a bubble on the front driver side one. Again, right on the side where the labels go.

    I am a slow and non-aggressive driver. I drive less than the average miles per year. I am also very careful with potholes. I never had issues with tires as I usually just wear them out, then change them.

    This leads me to believe that these tires have flows in the design right around the tire on the outside where the labels go.

    Jet.com has refused to replace any tire it they claim the tires have no warranty under jet.com. They asked me to reach out to the manufacturer. I have reach out the manufacturer and they say that the replacement process should be done/submitted by the retailer.

    I guess I am screwed.

    Don’t buy these tires. Definitely don’t buy them form jet.com.

    I have all receipts and still have the tires of someone is interested in pics.

  7. I have P7s on my 2015 Ford Taurus SHO. I have over 70K on these tires and still not down to the wear bars – but getting to where I’ll need to replace before Fall 2019. Been a good tire – OK in the snow (Minnesota), but I’ve had better handling all-season in the winter and it definitely helps to have AWD. I wonder if there is a change in the rubber compound if the wear is so much less in recent posts.

  8. I have these in my BMW X3 and with city and freeway commute driving these are going bald at 26000. 70000 miles is a far dream. Pirelli’s warranty will need to come into use I guess. If not no more pitelli’s for me.

  9. Pro: Great handling and quiet tires.
    Con: Won’t come close to 70,000 miles. Got 35000 out of them and will need to be replaced.

    1. Hi John
      Thank you for taking the time to engage with us. Our research has shown that other users of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 have been extremely pleased with the mileage they are getting, could you please inform us of the nature of your driving; the normal road surface you drive on and whether you’re a spirited driver? We only ask, as that could explain why your tires have lasted only half as long as promised by the manufacturer.

  10. These tires do not hold up. They were supposed to last for 65,000 miles. At less than 30,000 miles they were treacherous on an icy road. At 33,000 miles they are nearly bald. I would not use them again.

  11. Have used these for two years, 17,000 miles of spring-fall use, and they ride very smooth and quiet. They are rated good for winter use, but I use Pirelli’s Winter Cinturato for the winters here in CT. So far, no problems at all. Tread life will probably be 35,000 miles on my Subaru, which I am satisfied with.

  12. Going from the factory Bridgestone Turanza to these was a miracle I can’t believe I haven’t done sooner. This tire really accentuates the ability that a tire can make a marginal difference in ride quality, my 2012 Mazda 3 rides like a Civic now, firm, but controlled, luxurious, quiet, all while maintaining the sporty nature of the car. It absorbs the major imperfections of the road as if they were nothing, smaller bumps are supremely dampened, it’s a smooth transition. There’s a difference between rough ride and bumpy ride, the car is bumpy the Bridgestones we’re rough, but with the Pirelli, there’s a whole different car to be driven. Best purchase, Barr none.

    1. I am so unhappy with Pirelli. The tire tread separated from all four Cinturato tires at 29,000 and Pirelli would do nothing to compensate for the defect. They have a 70,000 mile warranty. I was treated horribly on the phone, the customer rep implied that I was so incompetent that I was to blame for the tires not lasting. “The problem is the driver, not the tire.” I change my tires out to winter tires every fall and there’s nothing wrong with those tires. I highly recommend staying away from Pirelli tires.

  13. I have a set of the Pirelli’s on my 2008 Lexus 350 since November 2014. Great tires but it appears will get no where close to 70,000 miles. There is 22,000 on them and have maybe 40% tread left 4/17. Whom do I pursue regarding warranty?

  14. After a thousand miles on these new tires I can say they are great. On the highway they are the smoothest tires I have ever experienced. Around town they offer incredible grip allowing for secure stopping, immediate steering response, and taking on-ramps at speed to merge safely. The P7 Plus’ absorb the worst potholes, and bumps like a luxury tire. No wet road experince yet. Previously I had the Yokohama YK580 which is a very good tire, too, but the Pirelli Cinturato P7 Plus is noticably better in handling and comfort. Got them at Discount Tire on Melrose Drive in Vista, CA. Great service, great tires.
