Auto Express names Pirelli P Zero Tyre of the Year 2009
Auto Express Magazine has named the Pirelli P Zero as ?Tyre of the Year? in front of 3 other brands. The tyre won the award for the design of a tyre with the best combination of wet and dry braking and handling, aquaplaning and rolling resistance performance, and price.
The Magazine commented that ?Designing tyres is all about trading off performance in one area for a gain in another However, Pirelli has certainly hit on a winning compromise here, as the P Zero starred not only in the wet, but also in the dry. It topped the times on both handling tracks, plus got the honours in curved aquaplaning. No wonder it inspires confidence when the heavens open. A great all-rounder that thoroughly deserves a place on your car.?
