P ZERO SYSTEM ASIMMETRICO Summer / Performance Tires by Pirelli®. A perfect solution for the most prestigious sportive and luxury cars. Depending on the use and the vehicle type, the P Zero System concept allows for the use the P Zero Direzionale on the front axle and the P Zero Asimmetrico on the rear, or P Zero Asimmetrico on both axles.
- Optimized tread pattern design enhances handling and control
- Unique grooves improve grip and roadholding
- Improved composite ensures maximum structural integrity
The P Zero System is the first combined system of its kind that pairs two tires with different tread pattern to achieve high directional stability at all speeds and exceptional grip in both wet and dry weather conditions. It can be either a combination of P Zero Direzionale™ (front) and P Zero Asimmetrico™ (rear) or P Zero Asimmetrico™ all-round.
Depending on the car and the desired application, there are two possible fitment pairings. Directional tires may be used on the front axle and Asymmetrical on the rear. Asymmetrical can also be used on both axles. Using Directional tires on the front maximizes the expulsion of water and Asymmetrical tires on the rear axle enhances dry handling.
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.
