The P Zero Run Flat is a Max Performance Summer self-supporting run-flat tire developed for the drivers of sports cars, sports coupes and high performance luxury sedans looking to combine the know-how derived from 100 years of Pirelli motorsport experience with the convenience of temporary extended mobility in the event of complete air pressure loss. Used as Original Equipment on Mini Cooper S and BMW 7 Series sedans, the P Zero Run Flat lineup includes selected additional replacement tire sizes for other vehicles. 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 Run Flat, like all summer tires, is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

P Zero Run Flat 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 provides 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 casing 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.

Sidewalls feature additional reinforcements to provide self-supporting run-flat capabilities of 50 mph for 50 miles (80 km/h for 80 km). Due to these restrictions, it’s imperative drivers be notified when a loss in tire pressure occurs and requires the vehicle be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to detect and signal tire pressure changes.

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.

  1. I don’t know about these tires been driving grand Cherokee srt’s for some time now. As us owners know we go thru a lot of tires. I got a 2019 trackhawk and well this one is a little more fun then The last few but that being said 7100 miles and I just ordered a second set I’m getting awful close to wear indicators. Once the fun wears off of the new Jeep it won’t be so bad but in the past I have averaged between getting About 15-18k miles a set not that good! But if by some miracle you can get 20k or more they will just go wonky any how I have tried other options there isn’t a lot out there these are the best trie for that srt they handle well are quiet and they are comfortable But the thing I dislike about them the most is the lack of warranty it’s non existent I have replaced two sets at out of pocket expenses on defects one was sidewall bulge the wires broke. And the second the back two feathered on me they just fell apart.i See a lot of complaints about how long they last but they are z rated run flats what do you expect you’re driving some kinda performance suv with these. So I’ll —- up the short life span and continue to buy them. Still the best tire even though they don’t last

  2. Worst tire I’ve ever had. I’ve gone through 2 in 2 weeks now. They blow the sidewall out with every bump you hit.I have 10 friends with these. The least I have heard from them is 4 blown tires a year. Most are averaging just under 1 tire blowout per month.

  3. This the original tires on my 2015 CTS VSport RWD Cadillac. I bougth this vehicle brand new with 600 miles on it. It’s very frustrating because all four tires are worn out and I will have to replace them with only 15,000 miles on them. These tires are too expensive for an average 60 year old driver like me. Something is wrong with these tires to wear out so fast and I don’t even go to a race track.

  4. Absolutely HORRIBLE tires. New P Zeros put on my car when I bought it, fast forward 3,293 miles and they have not tread on the outer half of each tire. I drive in the city mostly, doing city speed and not hard acceleration. The other joke here is that there is ironically “Zero” warranty on the tires. So Pirelli owns no defect or quality issues. Must be nice to put out crappy tires and simply say…”oh well”. Stay clear of these tires at all cost. Not even close to worth the price. The tread wear is horrible and they don’t stand behind their product.

  5. Purchased out Durango SRT with these tires on it, they were great for the first 3000 miles and then I had too rotate them every 3000 after that. I was surprised I needed tires at such a low mileage especially given the SRT is AWD, spinning the tires is hardly achievable. I thought for sure it must be one bad tire but sure enough all 4 where worn to the wear indicators. We drive 72 miles daily mostly highway miles and then a few miles up and down the mountain where we live. Again, this is AWD yet these tires practically disintegrated before our eyes. There is a huge reason Pirelli does not warranty the mileage, they are garbage tires. Pilot Sport A/S 3’s here we come….. A set of tires every other oil change is crazy, very few choices in this size. Back orders —- but it will be worth the wait.

  6. Grippy and excellent performing RFT performance summer tires. Came standard with the car. 1st set lasted for about 10k miles. The right front tire wore down and literally had a section of rubber tear off and the rears were nearly bald. Decided to buy the OEM ones again since they were almost $200 cheaper than a set of Michelin’s due to a promotion. Bad decision.These tires are rather noisy. Worst of all they have horrible tire wear. These new set lasted less than 11k miles this time. Even for a summer tire, that’s not acceptable. Either get a non-RFT with a fix a flat or get the Michelin’s PS2 ZP or AS3plus ZP.
