- Unique grooves improve grip and roadholding
- Improved composite ensures maximum structural integrity
- Available in a wide range of sizes
Designed to combine performance and comfort, the P Zero Rosso is ideal for modern sports cars with electronic drive and stability control systems. This tire provides precise steering response in all weather conditions. It has the distinction of being chosen for more than 200 original equipment fitments from the leading manufacturers.
Directional and asymmetric tread patterns can either be combined or used on both the front and the rear axles to provide maximum performance. Directional fronts provide exceptional grip in dry and wet conditions due to specially designed “arrow” grooves and longitudinal channels. Asymmetric rears enhance performance with a unique combination of large blocks on the outer shoulder, a semi-slick rib in the center featuring transverse grooves and a more open inner shoulder.
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.
