Product description & features
The Pirelli P7 Cinturato is a part of Pirelli's Green Performance range - developed to improve fuel consumption and lower CO2 levels when driving.
Pirelli have designed the tread pattern of the P7 Cinturato with a unique compact central block pattern - this pattern works to lessen the level of vibration in the tyre when tackling corners, aiding in greater handling and precise cornering.
Thanks to the use of four wide longitudinal grooves in the tyre's tread, Pirelli have constructed a tyre with excellent water dispersion - removing surface water from the path of the tyre and reducing the chances of aquaplaning when travelling in wet conditions.
The P7 Cintuarto meets with the 2012 EU Regulation for reduction of noise - leading to a quieter and therefore more enjoyable driving experience for car owners.
Impressive tyre performances has led to the Pirelli P7 Cinturato being selected as Original Equipment for leading manufacturers including Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Peugeot and Volkswagen.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
