The Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat is Pirelli’s Grand Touring All-Season run-flat tire developed for sports coupes, sedans and small Crossover vehicles. Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat tires feature Pirelli Self-Supporting Run Flat Technology that enhances safety and convenience by providing temporary extended mobility in the event a puncture allows complete loss of air pressure. Pirelli Self-Supporting Run Flat Technology allows tires to literally “run flat” for up to 50 miles at 50 mph (80 km at 80 km/h) unless otherwise specified by the vehicle manufacturer for Original Equipment tires. The Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat is designed to deliver all-season traction and handling for drivers who operate their vehicles in America’s various weather conditions, including in light snow.

The Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat’s unique combination of qualities have been made possible by Pirelli’s Green Performance approach to developing products offering a synergy of driving pleasure, performance, safety and respect of the environment. The Pirelli Ecoimpact icons on the sidewalls of Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat tires highlight their contribution to the environment with regards to energy efficiency, clean air, low noise and long wear.

The Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat uses a low rolling resistance tread compound that features technologically advanced polymers to increase grip on wet and dry roads while it reduces vehicle fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This compound is molded into an asymmetric tread design that promotes even wear, improves ride comfort and reduces noise levels. A robust outboard shoulder enhances lateral grip on dry roads while four circumferential channels flow water from between the tire’s contact patch and the road to enhance hydroplaning resistance and wet traction. Independent tread blocks and multiple sipes increase the biting edges needed to enhance traction in light snow. The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts to provide strength and durability on top of a polyester cord body. Pirelli’s extended mobility solution is made possible by their MIRS computer-controlled robotized manufacturing system, a production process that assures consistency in the application of the additional sidewall reinforcements that provide the self-supporting run-flat capability.

Note: Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat tires are designed and produced using eco-focused manufacturing methods and feature low rolling resistance (LRR) compounds and constructions to enhance the vehicle fuel economy of their Original Equipment applications. These tires are identified as such with Pirelli’s Ecoimpact designation on their Sizes and Specs pages.

Though they cannot be labeled as run-flat tires, tires branded with MOExtended or MOE on their sidewalls offer run-flat-like characteristics by delivering limited temporary extended mobility after a puncture results in complete loss of air pressure. Because MOExtended or MOE tires do not have the same speed and distance endurance of conventional run-flat tires, they should not be substituted in any situation where a conventional run-flat tire is required. To confirm what your vehicle needs, check our Original Equipment tire listing for your year, make and model or see your vehicle owner’s manual.

  1. These were on my BMW 328d x-Drive wagon when I bought it (used). They were at all times extremely loud and jarring on even the smallest road crack or bump. They also would tend to lose traction in corners if I carried any speed, and would frequently spin on acceleration, which, considering the diesel lag of my wagon, was surprising. Obviously some of these issues is probably due to the fact that they’re run-flats, but our other car (2015 Golf Sportwagon) was running a non-run-flat version of these and they were only marginally better. On the plus side, they wore evenly and were all within less than 1/32 of each other when I removed them (between 4 and 5/32s). Exact mileage is a guess since they predated my purchase.I replaced them with Vredestein Quattrac 5 (non-run-flat) and the traction is better, the ride is smoother, and the road noise is literally half what it was before (3 db decrease on average over a repeated downhill coast, taking into account volume at idle to account for A/C and any other variables that may have been at work).

  2. Had my E400 Mercedes for almost one year now. These were delivered on the car. I accept the somewhat harsher ride due to the thicker sidewall. On a recent trip I was doing 70 MPH on Ohio I-71 and was dealing with a pretty pock marked area of road but failed to see a HUGE pothole. I hit it dead on with front driver side wheel followed by the rear going through as well. I couldn’t believe the front end withstood the impact. There was a vibration as a result and I pulled over to inspect the wheels and tires on that side, nothing visible. I went to the nearest MB dealer and upon examining the wheels they were both bent, the front worse than the read, but the tires examined both inflated and off the rims showed no evidence of the impact. Feel badly for those owner who experienced poor performance when hitting even minor pot holes but that surely wasn’t the case with this incident.

  3. I’ve had many other brands over the years on a variety of sport sedans and I have to say I absolutely love these tires, so much so, I’m getting ready to replace the ones I have with another set. Granted most of my miles are high speed highway, but I do live in very hilly western PA where if you’re not going up you’re going down and our roads are notorious for having some of the worst surfaces in the country. Having a Quattro certainly makes judging traction difficult but I haven’t shoveled my driveway the last two winters. On the other hand previous AWD vehicles tended to eat other brands of similar tires. I hope I’m just not lucky with this set!!!

  4. Tires were OEM on car. Performed surprisingly well through the first New England winter, I was happy with traction in both small and large snowfalls. Performed well into the second winter, noticed a lost less traction and confidence while driving in inclamate weather. Now 30,000 miles and I am looking to replace the tire. Overall I have been satisfied with their performance.

  5. equip on merceden w205 factory, bad corning in wet traction, slow steering response,feel numb , very noisy ,and super unconfortable.

  6. These tires are awful. First off, you can’t patch a run flat, so one little leak and you need a tire. And replacing one on an all wheel vehicleisn’t really a good thing to do unless the opposing tire is close to new itself. So you end up replacing tires and rotating to compensate. They wear so fast. My BMW dealer says “yeah, they’re soft tires” but the only benefit I see in these tires is to the dealer. First thing I did after my lease was up was replace them. I also don’t know how these are even rated for all-weather, they stink in the snow!
