WINTER CARVING EDGE Winter / Performance Tires by Pirelli®. Studdable Winter tires that were developed for the drivers of sport cars, coupes, sedans and minivans, as well as CUVs and SUVs. While designed to accept tire studs to enhance traction on packed snow and ice, they can also be used without studs if desired. Winter Carving radials are designed to perform in wet and dry conditions, as well as enhance overall traction in snow and on ice.
- 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
Designed for optimum traction and braking on ice, consistent performance throughout the tire’s life makes it ideal for use in extreme winter weather conditions. Excellent on fresh snow, Winter Carving Edge has a directional tread pattern with an optimized stud hole design. This offers exceptional stud retention and improved acoustic comfort.
Winter Carving radials use Pirelli's Adaptive Compound Technology (ACT) to blend winter performance with wear resistance. Due to the traction capabilities of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge, Pirelli recommends using these tires only in sets of four to provide the best handling characteristics and tire performance.
For safe driving in winter too, winter tires are formulated with specific compound and an optimized treas pattern to ensure adherence and traction in cold weather conditions. Winter Pirelli tires are at their best in lower temperatures, especially in rain and snow, but also on dry asphalt.
Here are some tips from Pirelli technicians on how to get the best from your winter tires, in terms of performance and safety.
When driving avoid sharp acceleration, sudden steering action or braking, to minimize loss of traction on snow or ice.
Always fit four winter tires.
For optimum performance and safety, it is essential that all four tires are the same. Always use four winter tires of the same brand, and with the same construction features. Fit tires of the same size on the same axle, with the same characteristics of use, tread pattern and conditions of wear. The use of studded tires, where permitted, must be extended to all four wheels. Consult the vehicle's handbook for the correct load capacity and speed rating of the tires to be used.
Check tire pressures regularly.
Inflation pressure must be checked regularly and carried out when the tires are cold. If necessary correct the pressure again, when the tire is cold. Keep to the pressure indicated by the vehicle manufacturer. Note, pressure change in relation to the external temperature: a pressure of 2.0 bar measured at +20°C decreases to 1.74 bar at -5°C and falls to 1.59 bar when the temperature is at -20°C (a change of 20%).
Check the speed limit.
Pay attention to the speed limit indicated by the rating on the tire sidewall. Optionally, the car may be equipped with tires of a lower rating than that prescribed. In this case, the European regulations state that the reduction in speed must be indicated on an adhesive label placed inside the car (on the windscreen or dashboard so that it’s always visible to the driver).
Check the tread frequently.
The performance of winter tires remains effective down to a tread depth of 4mm. Below this level they are no longer adequate for winter use but can be used as summer tires down to the main tread minimum legal limit, set at 1.6 mm.
Store them carefully.
When winter tires are not being used, they should preferably be kept on wheel rims and inflated, and the pressures checked regularly. If stored without rims, they must be stacked on their sides no more than four per stack so that they are not deformed by the weight. Rotate winter tires in the right direction every 10,000/12,000 km.76.47
