The P Zero Nero GT (nero Italian for black) is Pirelli’s Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of sports cars, sporty coupes and medium-large sedans. As the evolution of Pirelli’s earlier P Zero Nero, the P Zero Nero GT introduces their latest technological developments to enhance product performance and tread life. Pirelli’s warranty does not cover tires that develop compound cracking due to use in ambient temperatures below 45° Fahrenheit (7° Celsius), so the P Zero Nero GT, like all summer tires, is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

Featuring a new compound, the P Zero Nero GT has a balanced content of silica in order to enhance wear resistance without compromising the sportive feeling of the product in both dry and wet conditions. The compound is molded into a subtle asymmetric, wide rib tread design to increase the rigidity of the tread to resist deformation and enhance grip and steering response on a variety of road surfaces while enhancing resistance to irregular wear and generating low noise levels. Optimized in their position and width, the tire’s circumferential grooves are designed to maximize dry road performance while enhancing hydroplaning resistance.

Featuring a high-technology casing profile, the tire’s internal structure includes rayon body plies and twin steel belts reinforced by zero degree nylon that evenly distribute footprint pressure and resist deformation to promote high-speed durability.


  1. Love these tires. I have 5000 miles on them with very little wear. I am not a hard driver, but occasionally like to pass the competition. This is not a standard S60, it is a GT K-PAX model and with these tires it has positive grip and corners like it is on rails. Will purchase these again.

  2. Punctured an OEM tire out of the gate so took the opportunity to switch to something a bit more suited to a Performance 3, and that would be covered by road hazard warranty – this is my first new car, and who knew that road hazard isn’t part of a vehicle warranty 🙁 Those OEM acoustic tires are also ridiculous $ for what they are.In exchange for slightly greater tire noise, these grip better than the OEM but not as good as Direzza Star Specs that I had on an S2000. Cornering seems a little less refined, but it’s also a heavier vehicle so ¯\_(¿)_/¯The rears are pretty well done at 19k mi, and started making some pretty significant additional rotational noise around 15k or so. The last 10k mi has predominantly been road trip highway driving with not a lot of spirited cornering, so not sure what’s causing the rotational noise. I guess I really should have checked them more closely and rotated at 10k mi, for now will replace the rears to wear out with the fronts and then maybe switch it up for the next full set.

  3. torque steer on the st was pronounced with the original equipment Goodyear tires.pleasantly surprised how well the PZero tires handle and muted torque steer significantlygreat on wet and dry roadsreasonable comfortable and rather quietoverall very pleased with my choice

  4. These tire preform well, but I would never buy them again. Got 2 bubbles and 2 blowouts in 1 month of driving. Spend your money elsewhere where other tires will be more practical.

  5. Bought these tires (with wheels) to replace a set of staggered run-flats. They were remarkably reasonable in price, and the Tire Rack reviews were good. At first — nirvana, the improvement over the run-flats was a joy, making this early E90 handle more like an E46. However, I soon noticed how NOISY these tires are, compared to the Michelin Pilot Super Sports of the same size I had on my last car. BMW. How bad? I’m seriously considering biting the bullet and replacing these tires with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4s — which I should have bought to begin with.
