Cinturato P4 is the new balanced performance tyre. The new tread compound allows a long life duty. Optimized pressure distribution in carcass offers a more effectively distributed ground-pressure in the contact patch, optimizes traction and grip at all speeds. The new pattern reduces noises and enhance comfort. Advanced tread stress relief reducing noise.
Asymmetric tread design for enhanced grip on curve and high cornering force in all weather conditions. Larger tread blocks on the outer portion for increased stability during cornering, and smaller inner blocks to dissipate water.
Continuous longitudinal rib provides uniform and constant rubber-to-asphalt contact even at high speed enhancing driving stability. The inside shoulder design takes over on wet surfaces where the larger number of grooves breaks up the film of water and evacuates it through wide longitudinal channels.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

07.09.2013 from Kenneth London Very happy with tyre
02.02.2012 from Vestat Excellent Tyre, worth the price that is very low for this kind of comfort and safety. Found the tyre excellent on dry and wet conditions, very durable and i think i had to inflate it once every 15.000 km. You put them on and will remember forever Pirelli Italian Tyre Quality.
11.09.2009 from Danilo Great tyre especially on wet.
