The P Zero All Season Plus is the Ultra High Performance All-Season member of Pirelli’s P Zero tire family. Developed for driving enthusiasts behind the wheels of powerful sports cars, coupes and sedans looking for Pirelli prestige and year-round performance, the P Zero All Season Plus is designed to be driven in all seasons, even in light snow.

P Zero All Season Plus tires feature Pirelli’s advanced all-season tread compound that combines special silica and polymers. The tread compound is molded into an all-new advanced asymmetric tread pattern featuring variable size tread elements to minimize noise inside the vehicle while five distinctly designed ribs promote performance in all weather conditions. Stable outboard shoulder blocks feature lateral siping to maximize cornering while a rigid center rib increases steering control, dry grip and overall handling. Circumferential grooves flush out water to resist hydroplaning while large grooves between the blocks expel water and capture more snow. Winter siping technology in the inboard blocks enhances tread pattern stability while increasing the number of biting edges to improve snow traction.

Beginning in 2016, Pirelli updated the compound of the P Zero All Season Plus in an effort to improve traction in the wet and snow. Though the benefits of the revised compound are best realized by installing a complete set of four tires on a vehicle, Pirelli has indicated tires with the new compound are mixable in any quantity with tires featuring the original compound.

For easy identification, the Original and Revised compound tires are identified with a clarifier on the Specs page and in the search results.

The tire’s internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced by a spirally wrapped, variable tension control nylon cap ply to optimize foot print shape, resulting in high levels of driving comfort, steering control and treadwear.

  1. Wow what a difference comeing from contanital junk. road noise is very low to none. Befor the 245/45R-18 PIRELLI P ZERO ALL SEASON + REVISED COMPOUND XL I thought I need to reseal my doors I thought the weather stripping had came off . But it was not like ridding in a new car. Drive like new

  2. I’ve been thru two pair of these and liked them. Majority of my time is on curvy but smooth backroads and highways. Very predictable in curves, ride is good and secure. I’m trying a set of Michelins this time just to get a sportier experience with more road feel, mainly because I have been enjoying high performance driving events with another car and this has me wanting the same sporty enjoyment in all my cars. Since I got my first pair of P Zeros, it appears other tires have stepped up their game and the P Zeros, though still excellent tires, have dropped in the overall ratings. I;d still buy them again, but just gonna see if the extra cost is worth it for the highest-performing (handling-wise) Michelins. If you are looking at the P Zeros to buy, you can do so without reservation. They are very good.

  3. I put these tires on my AWD Lexus just before embarking on a cross-country trip. I bought the 2011 GS350 as a CPO vehicle with 48K miles on it. The original tires had been replaced with something horrid (with “General” in the name, cough) that were, quite literally, lethal in wet conditions. Even at 8/32 those things were ice cubes. At the time these Pirellis were well thought of in the areas I care about for the Lexus, namely wet traction and road noise. so I bought them.They’re worn completely out at this point. I have zero regrets. They told me they’d —- in the snow, and boy did they! But. But. But. I always made it home. The car has a “snow” button, and, once pushed, the car’s brain combined well enough with the tires’ awful traction to allow me to find my driveway. Mind you, I live in hilly country. So that’s saying something.In every other category besides snow these tires were straight up phenomenal. And I must add this; on that first cross-country trip we encountered terrible snowy, slushy conditions on mountainous interstates, and the tires performed very very admirably. So they do okay in the sloppy stuff when they’re new, just not so much after they have a few miles on them. In the rain, even now with 3/32 tread, they’re downright cocky. I’d buy them again but I have this little itch I need to scratch regarding Japanese cars and Japanese tires. Were it not for that I’d probably go with AS3’s this time.

  4. I wanted a performance tire that was quiet as I regularly have some long road trips to visit family. After a lot of research, I decided to try the P Zero all season plus and I have to say they are very quiet ( when new) and seem to have similar ride / handling characteristics to the OEM P Zero all season that Ford outfits on most Mustangs from the factory. The one big problem I had was trying to get the new set balanced. It took 3 trips to 2 tire shops before 2 of the tires were diagnosed as defective and were replaced under warranty after 3 weeks. Since Pirelli replaced the defective tires, the car now runs smoothly. I’ll be happy if they last 20,000 miles as I only drive about 4,000 miles a year now ( summer only use). As a middle age driver, I’m driving in a more relaxed manner compared to my younger years so comfort and quietness were more important to me than out right performance so I made the right choice with these tires on my Mustang GT.

  5. Tread life is terrible. 15K miles and 24 months later and the tires on my wife’s car are smoked. Tread across the tire is worn to wear bar and there are literally chunk’s missing toward the cornering edge. My wife’s were all season tires. I also ran the summer p-zeros on a mustang I had a they gripped great but again, terrible tread life.

  6. I have been purchasing Pirelli tires for my vehicles for years and have always been very pleased. In this case however, to say that I am beyond disappointed. There must have been some change in Pirelli’s manufacturing process because this set of tires began showing front outside and rear inside treadwear almost immediately and by the time I had them replaced, the front tires had worn all the way through the tread, the wear bars, and into the solid rubber on the outside, and well into the wear bars across the entire tire. The rears were also worn on the inside to solid rubber and well into the wear bars across the entire tire. I had the alignment and camber checked and both were within spec, so the issue is with the tires. To get 21,143 miles (which was really pushing it) out of a set of tires, particularly when my driving style is not at all aggressive, is very disappointing.

  7. After just over 35,000 miles (mostly freeway driving but also some ambitious cornering; rotations every 5,000 mi), tread depth is about 5/32″ across the tops and inside shoulders of all tires; just under 4/32″ on the outer shoulders. Not sure if I’ll reach the rated 50,000 miles but I’ll certainly break 40,000. I previously had Continental ExtremeContact DW tires on the car. The Pirellis are more comfortably-riding, both are quiet enough, and the Continentals were superior in the wet (particularly where freeway hydroplaning is concerned). The Continentals had a far sharper steering feel – zero delay between steering input and directional change – under all driving conditions. The Pirellis have a more subdued steering feel during regular daily driving, but respond immediately to more aggressive steering inputs. Some may consider the split personality a pro or a con. Snow traction is average: not a snow tire, but I’ve had them on mountain passes and logging roads without issue. In sum: quiet, comfortable, very capable handling, and exceptional treadlife. I’d consider a different tire only to gain better wet performance, but everything’s a tradeoff.

  8. I have always used Pirelli tires. From my Jeep to my Cadillac to my MG to my Fiat to my Volvo and all the others in between. I love Pirelli! The P Zero that I currently have on my Volvo C30 are great, but they do seem to be wearing a little faster than the previous versions I’ve used. I don’t drive very far each day, and I very rarely spin the tires on take off, so I would think the tread wear should be less than what it is. Even the rear tires are starting to show wear. Only about 8000 miles of use. Probably closer to 6000. They are still awesome tires, but I think I might choose a different type when it comes time to replace them. I will stick with Pirelli, just maybe not the P Zero.

  9. If you are looking for a quiet tire this probably isn’t it. I bought these for spring and summer so I was more concerned about handling and safety. These tires are fantastic in the rain and on dry pavement. At 70 MPH in a rainstorm you won’t feel like you’re driving on the edge. My car is way more responsive and cornering/braking have improved tremendously from the Altimax RT43 tires I had previously. Noise level: It’s a Honda Civic and these cars aren’t made to be quiet, with that being said these tires don’t help. The tread hum is present but not unbearable. The pros of the tires outweigh the hum you hear on the interstate.

  10. Have run this P Zero Nero tire since the car was new for a total product experience of 312,000 miles. This tire and this car were made for each other. I have a five speed that helps with wet and snow traction and managed rural Ohio and West Virginia in winter conditions. Mud was a challenge in Louisiana on farm roads but only required a tow once in several years of travel. A fine tire for traction and control. Finally there is a size available for my Lincoln MKZ and bought a set of 4. I do not rotate and the rear pair wear before the front. The new tires always are front mounted and about 8,000 miles later another pair was purchased for an about new set of 4. A very quiet tire for a performance type. Tread life is determined by how aggressively one drives but it is more than acceptable in my experience averaging between 30,000 to 35,000 for a set of 4 as described. Yes, I will buy this tire again.

  11. I have bought Pirelli tires often and have always like Pirelli. The P-Zeros I was not happy with the tread wear. At 30,000, they needed to be replaced due to the tread being to low. I was not expecting that with these tires since I am a laid back driver. The Pirelli dealer that installed them said they were outside of warranty which blew me away. So with that being said, I decided to jump ship and go with the Firestone Indy 500s. Depending on how well the Firestone tires do, I will more than likely not come back to Pirelli in the future.

  13. Exceeded expectations. Tire is dead silent (no road noise at all), responsive, stable. Best all season tire I’ve purchased. It tops Michelin Pilots, Conti Extreme Contact, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric…all tire purchased from TR and driven on our cars. This comes from someone who historically was not a Pirelli fan. Pirelli got it right with this one. Happy Driving!

I also ran the summer p-zeros on a mustang I had a they gripped great but again, terrible tread life.

  18. Definitely very disappointed. I had many choices and made a poor decision looking back. These tires are very loud, wearing heavy, and just not even close to a comfort ride. They are on a 2016 Mercedes Benz with 40K miles and the car rides like my 2011 Corvette. Even riders in my Mercedes comment without me asking that the tires seem loud and ride bad.

  19. I love this tire for Midwest. In rain, snow, dry. 9 months winter, but mostly rain this year, with a few days minus 20 degrees F. I don’t drive on ice or deep snow. Tires never slipped. But. Two of my tires wore down to 5/32nds over 2 years and only 15K miles total. I rotated 1x. I’m not waiting for the warranty at 50K miles or 2/32nds to replace. Good news is tires are cheaper than when I first bought them. I do mostly suburban driving, with a few highway trips, and 1 mountain trip. I can’t account for why 2 tires wore down so fast. Maybe I should have rotated every 5K miles, not waiting for every 7K miles. Or maybe replaced brakes sooner. 2015 Ford sedan has about 37K miles total. These installed at 22K miles. I’ll be replacing with 2 of the same tires.

  20. This is a great all seasons tire for the performance oriented driver. It strikes a great balance between ride and handling. I had the Michelin AS3’s before these and while they had better dry turn in (sharper), they rode noticeably stiffer, were noisier and had worse snow traction. I understand that the newer PS3+’s are an improvement but I am very happy with the Pirellis. Very good handling in dry and wet with decent light snow traction and a comfortable ride which is the trade off I was looking for with the horrible NJ winter roads (ok, the roads are not too good in the other seasons). Recommend these highly. For the summer I am very close to getting dedicated wheels and tires.

  21. I purchased these tires because they had an excellent wet rating and an excellent comfort rating…I want quiet tires ! The snow rating wasnt great, but any tire is adequate in the snow with Audi’s Quattro awd system. And these tires are amazing; they are down to the wear bars but the ride still ABSOLUTELY smooth and quiet ! I had DWS previously, they are a quiet tire but not AS quiet and did not stay quiet the whole life of the tire.And speaking of tire life, dont think badly of these tires because I wore them out in only 25,000 miles….an Audi A8L W12 will eat ANY tire by 30K max. And yes the DWS did last 30k, and that is 25% more miles, but the last 5K were not as quiet as these All Season Plus tires have been. So I am going to buy another set of Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus tires.

  22. I travel for a living in central Florida. Replaced OEM Michelin’s with these. I read the mixed reviews, but have owned these in the past and liked them. So far, I see light or expected wear. No increased road noise and have handled well in the recent rain storms here in Florida. I was expecting 50,000 miles… now, maybe more. I do rotate, have alignment checked and monitor air pressure on a regular basis. So far, very pleased.

  23. My previous two sets of tires were Michelin PSS and PS4. I was able to get about 22k miles out of both sets with 70% highway miles (on a 30k treadwear warranty). I do drive “spirited” on backroads, but defensively on the highway. I went to the P Zeros A/S Plus to try and get more life out of a set of tires (hard to swallow $1000+ every 11 month or so). P Zeros handle well in both wet and dry. There is a small but noticeable difference in the grip levels in both wet and dry conditions, but it is more pronounced in the wet. But that is what you get when you go to an all-season tire vs summer. Steering response is very good, but can feel a bit soft on hard corners. Road comfort is on par with UHP A/S tires. Tread noise is minimal when new, but does get louder as tire wears. Tread wear is NOT good. After 21k miles, tires are gone. If I drove aggressively all the time, I wouldn’t complain. However, being the large majority of the miles are on an interstate, I do not think it is acceptable. I paid $15 less per tire than PS4 and got same mileage out of tires, but did get $400 in treadwear warranty. Going to try Michelin A/S 3 plus to see if it does any better.

  24. Great overall tire. Good feel. I’ve tried many different manufacturers tires on my car and these are the most quite tries by far. They have a very smooth feel in dry conditions. In the wet I would say they are good but not great. I would buy these again as they have a great overall driving experience.

  25. After a year of driving on these tires in everything from snow and ice to hot sun, I am very impressed with this tire. The 2011 Mini Cooper JCW came with Michelin run flats. Those were awful to say the least. Hard, noisy, very average handling for a tire that was original equipment on a performance oriented car. This is because the car does not come with a spare. The Pirellis are infinitely more composed in all conceivable categories. They outperform in rain, snow, dry, hot, and cold. They are much quieter and much less harsh. It is worth carrying a flat fix kit and pump than to have the run flats. Would definitely buy these again.

  26. At 15,280 the rear tires had no tread remaining on the outside rear and 2/32 on inside on both sides of the vehicle. I’ve averaged 21,000 previously on two sets each of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 and Continental Extreme Contact DS3. 6/32 remain on fronts. I would never purchase these tires again due to extremely poor rear tread wear. Note C300 4MATIC has different tire sizes and tires cannot be rotated from front to rear.

  27. Bought these tires after my oem set of hanooks went bad aftwr 26k miles. I now have almost 90k on my Accent and the tire treads are not even close to the end of their life. I find the tires do have some difficulty with deep water and ice. However, the light weight of the Accent does not help. If road noise bothers you, these may not be the tires for you. I bought these tires in hopes they would last a long time and have reasonable grip in dry conditions. I have been impressed and imagine getting at least 80k out of these tires.

  28. I bought these to replace the max performance summer tire on my Mustang to get a better ride, that didn’t work out. These have a lot of grip for an all season tire and Tire Rack gives it a high rating for cornering and G-force equal to many performance summer tires. They do handle really well and have a semi quiet ride but for a all season tire they are harsh and rough riding going over road imperfections. They seem to run slightly narrow for the size and they have more than the average rounded shoulders which takes away from it looks, they look like they should be on a family sedan. If you really need a all season tire and also autox and track, this may be a good choice. For me I’m going back to a summer tire. The wear and wet weather performance seems to be average. At the top my review shows an average of 4 stars, but really they are a 3 because of the ride and looks.

  29. Up graded 4700 mi ago to a set of Pirelli P-Zeros from a set of P- Zero Neros that had 20000 mi on them. These are far quieter and have a more stable ride going into hard corners, and grip better on hard stops. They do have a higher speed rating than the P-Zero Neros as well.Over all they are good tires, and I would consider buying them again.Not a great track tire, but I don’t track the car.Tredwear is average.
