Designed for the latest generation of saloons, estate cars and MPVs, where comfort, high-speed stability and safety are the essential ingredients, the P6 ™ utilizes both STEP (Safety from Technically Engineered Profile) technology and the Pirelli patented ELRR (Extra Low Rolling Resistance) system. STEP is a platform that delivers a more harmonious interaction between the various components of the tire, whilst the ELRR system focuses on the belt and sidewall.
Wide ribs divided into two distinct elements; curved grooves for better traction and braking, combined with a plain section to emphasize comfort, evenness of wear and noise reduction. Continuous circumferential channels boost water expulsion from the contact patch whilst the solid centre rib enhances steering precision, stability and handling. Key advances from Pirelli bring exclusive processes that optimize compound properties to provide increased grip, higher mileage and greater comfort.
Mono-ply rayon increases casing flexibility and, together with the “high flex point” profile (STEP), improves ride comfort and reduces rolling resistance.
A lighter, high tensile steel belt improves comfort and handling whilst reducing rolling resistance. P
P6TM is an active component integrated into the car safety system, ensuring optimum stability and control. The tire adapts easily to variable driving conditions and retains its performance characteristics, even when significantly worn. In addition to the benefits of STEP, the innovative ELRR system reduces rolling resistance.
