The new tires are part of Pirelli’s new line of Plus products that have been better engineered to meet the requirements of North America’s drivers. The Cinturato P7 All Season Plus II has a new tread compound and optimized footprint that improves the tire’s performance on wet surfaces. Specifically, the tread has helped improve the stopping distance of the tire on wet ground.
Here’s where they focused their efforts:
- New Compound – A new functionalized polymer and increased silica content forms the new tread compound, which can also be found on the recently released Scorpion Verde All Season Plus II. This new compound delivers improved stopping distance in the Cinturato P7 All Season Plus II as well as enhanced overall performance in wet traction, handling and braking while maintaining the previous generation’s tread wear, winter traction, noise, comfort, dry handling and steering performance.
- Optimized Footprint – A five percent larger contact area and optimized shape improves overall wet performance, braking and handling over the previous generation.
- All Season Performance -The Cinturato P7 All Season Plus II is an extremely well-balanced tire that delivers high performance, low noise, and excellent handling.
The tire maker is covering each Cinturato P7 All Season Plus II shoe with a 70,000-mile limited tread wear warranty.
Pirelli’s new tire is available in 30 sizes now ad a full 50-size range will be available in the coming months.
