The needs and requirements of the driver continue to grow in the direction of a high speed range. Above all, what the sports driver trust most is a tyre with a bigger rim and higher load capacity. Pirelly has especially designed the P Zero Nero tyre for this important consumer group. The P Zero Nero is a tyre designed especially for the soft and hard tunning. It's special design includes it in the sports category, with more reliability and offering more driving pleasure than many other tyres.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

03.11.2014fromgreg Great tire
04.01.2014fromAntreas My car is almost 600bhp, these tires are great! Recomended!
11.07.2011fromJim Bay These are the WORST wearing tires that I have every seen in my life. Life is ONLY about 5,000 miles. Pirelli should give me my money back.
18.05.2011fromCarl Tire have had a hard time sealing on wheel. I am having to have the tires remounted and sealed to the rim to keep air in them. Probably due to the extreme short sidewall
