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.


Pirelli Cinturato Strada All Season Tire Review

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.

Pros

  • 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

Cons

  • Nothing that stands out

Overall Thoughts

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 what you would expect from a premium touring tire, which is excellent. 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 rep, this is simply a very good tire in this category and one that we highly recommend.

  1. Like RP said in an earlier post, I barely got 30,000 miles on original Toyo tires on 2015 Mazda CX5 AWD. I didn’t ever have a problem with the Toyos in ice and snow, and I drive in that a lot. I bought Pirelli Strada 70K tires. They seem to be doing fine on tread wear but it seems to me that they are much worse in snow and ice. I have about 25K on these tires and the tread still looks good but when they wear out I won’t be replacing them with Pirelli again due to less-than-satisfactory performance in ice and snow. I’ve never been able to tell the subtle difference in handling or even noise between tires with similar tread designs. I’ve had Michelin and Goodyear tires on a couple of other vehicles I own and the traction and tread life has been good. I’m leaning toward Michelin again if they have them in 225/55/R19 . I won’t say for sure it’s the tires but I’ve sure had some scary drives since I put the Pirelli tires on. I won’t take a chance on them again.

  2. When the tires are cold, they make noise. The noise mostly goes away after they warm up. My mechanic tells me it MAY be due to nylon cords; that while sitting the tires develop a squashed area, that goes away after warm up. He claims the same problem with some Pirellis on one of his vehicles.
    I’d like to know if anyone else has complained of the same problem
    I took it to store where I purchased but the car had warmed up sufficiently and didn’t make the noise.

  3. Just put 4 of these on my 2016 Lexus IS200t. Very quiet and smooth ride. Handling is impressive. I got just under 30k out of the original tires so 70k warranty sounds great, we’ll see if we get there. So far very impressed.

  4. I have been a Michelin man for a long time. Now I have these Cinturato tires and they are the best I have ever had.They are quiet, run the car with a smooth ride, handle and corner like none I have ever had.The price is right and with a 70,000 mile warranty ,you can’t go wrong.Outperforms all the other tires I have ever had on my 2008 Acura.

  5. Just bought 4 of these tires to replace a set of Michelins that dry rotted on the sidewall. I am hoping for no problems with these Pirelli tires. The Discount Tire store has great service and a rebate for Presidents day. Wish me luck with the Pirelli tires.
