P Zero tires are Max Performance Summer tires derived from 100 years of Pirelli motorsport experience and developed for the drivers of powerful sports cars, sports coupes and high performance luxury sedans. Initially introduced as Original Equipment on the Aston Martin DB9, Audi R8, Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, Lamborghini Murcielago, Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT and Mercedes-Benz AMG vehicles P Zero tires feature a special silica and carbon black tread compound that proves competent during the first few miles of driving when the tire is still cold, as well as consistent performance throughout the tire's life.
The tread compound is molded into Pirelli's S-treme asymmetric design in which the location and width of the circumferential and lateral grooves minimize deformation to blend responsive handling, hydroplaning resistance and wet traction with dry road performance, even wear and acoustic comfort. Special nano-composites in the compound beneath the tread protect the carcass from deterioration and merge sport handling with ride comfort. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by polyamide cord plies and an integration of nylon and aramid cord that controls tire profile deformation and stabilizes the tread area to enhance high-speed capability and handling.
P Zero Run–Flat
is the quintessence of excellent performances, comfort and reliability which above all are enduring, thanks to the innovative MIRS™ manufacturing techniques.
• P Zero Run–Flat features asymmetric tread pattern design for precise driving - Renforced sidewall and special unseatable bead
• Broad longitudinal channels for better drainage of the footprint
• Continuous central rib guaranteeing greater footprint pressure and reduced road noise Pirelli Total Mobility
• Secure dry and wet handling, braking efficiency and resistance to aquaplaning.
• The vehicle can be driven in total safety even following a sudden loss of pressure. Road holding, handling and steering precision are maintained. Passive safety Extended mobility, even when a puncture occurs: at zero pressure the vehicle is not immobilised and the driver can rely on a run-flat range of up to 80-150 km (50-93 miles) at 80 km/h (50 mph).
