P ZERO Summer / Performance Tires by Pirelli®. This tire was developed together with the most prestigious motor manufacturers for top of the range supersports and high powered vehicle; which is why many have chosen it as an original equipment reference product. A reference point for the Ultra High Performance segment, it is characterized by an asymmetric tread pattern.
- Optimized tread pattern design enhances handling and control
- Unique grooves improve grip and roadholding
- Improved composite ensures maximum structural integrity
- Available in a wide range of sizes
Characterized by an asymmetric tread pattern that improves braking, P Zero is noted for its enhanced performance and control. Excellent for wet conditions, it reduces the risk of hydroplaning, and offers increased safety and handling. State of the art nanocomposite compound ensures the maximum grip and stability essential to sports driving.
The tire’s structural integrity improves steering response and ensures uniform tread wear. A special “S-shaped” groove in the tread reduces interior noise levels, enhancing driving comfort. The P Zero is truly a benchmark in its segment and ideal for all of the finest sport and exotic cars.
P Zero Family is the maximum expression of Pirelli's "Ultra High Performance" philosophy. Enhancing the performance of modern supersports cars and their most "extreme" versions, these tires have also been designed for occasional race track use. Ideal for powerful sedans and mid-range vehicles.
Pirelli tires have a stiff construction and do not usually require higher inflation pressures. They are designed for use at a pressure of approximately 2 bar, which is to be adjusted according to the vehicle type. The indicated figure refers to the “operating pressure”: the pressure of the tire when it is fully warmed up to working temperature. For accurate calibration, it is essential to consider that the difference in temperature between a “cold” tire and a “hot” one is quite significant, normally 0.5 bar.
Pirelli recommends the use of ordinary compressed air to inflate the tires, provided that the above procedures are followed. No special gases, such as nitrogen, are required unless the source of air is exposed to excessive humidity.
Always use a high-quality air pressure gauge in order to obtain reliable results. We also recommend that the valve stems of the wheels should be metal, instead of rubber, as they are more resistant to high temperatures.
Founded in 1872, today Pirelli counts 19 tire industrial plants, in four continents, operating through a widespread sales network in over 160 countries around the world. Pirelli is distinguished for its long industrial tradition, which has always been combined with capacity for innovation, product quality and brand strength. A strength which, since 2002, has also been supported by the industrial design project of P Zero, and which today has been further recognized by the Formula 1, for which Pirelli Tire is the exclusive supplier for the three-year term 2011-2013.
