WINTER SEASON, TOP PERFORMANCE

The new tires are Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3 Ultra High Performance tire designed for cars in the premium segment. Pirelli Research Laboratories have developed an innovative compound thanks to the role polymers to improve the mechanical properties, thermal and dynamic condition - provide very high performance on wet and snow-covered roads.

Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3 were tested in the most rigorous conditions in Italy, Austria, Sweden, Finland and New Zealand, new tires in strict compliance with high quality standards imposed by Pirelli safety, mileage and performance.

The result of the development with prestige and premium OEMs. It is the tyre dedicated to high-end premium vehicles. The best winter performance in all winter conditions.

 EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

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.

I would like to say that these tyres saved our bacon this winter. We had lots of snow and ice over January and February this year and the tyres never lost an ounce of grip. Even when others were stuck and lost in snow drifts, the Scout got through. I was concerned about the wear of the tyres (bring softer than summet tyres but there was little wear showing on the Winter Tyres). Highly recommended for high speed road driving or off-road snowdrifts!

Winter tyres were probably quieter than my summer choice of Pirelli P ZeroNero GT's. Size is staggered, 235/40 18 and 254/35 18. I never had any qualms in standing water or winter conditions with these tyres.

Go anywhere in the snow. Protrude slightly to protect your alloys.

Very good tyre.
