P Zero tires are Max Performance Summer tires derived from 100 years of Pirelli motorsport experience and developed for the drivers of powerful sports cars, sports coupes and high performance luxury sedans. Initially introduced as Original Equipment on the Aston Martin DB9, Audi R8, Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, Lamborghini Murcielago, Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT and Mercedes-Benz AMG vehicles, the P Zero lineup also includes select replacement tire sizes. 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, like all summer tires, is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

P Zero 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 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.

Limited sizes of the P Zero are available with Pirelli Noise Cancelling System, which involves the manufacturer adhering a layer of sound-absorbing foam to the inner liner of the tire to reduce cabin noise in the vehicle. These sizes are identified on the Specs page and in the search results.


  1. These tires only last around 8000 miles so beware. They have no tire thread warranty for a reason because they run out very quickly. If money is not a issue the. Ya sure buy them and get a new pair every 8000 miles.. ¿

  2. These tires are noisy. The rears are bald after 24,000 and I drive like a little old lady. I average 21 mpg with a 560 hp engine so obviously I’m not burning rubber. A $130,000 BMW deserves better and quieter tires than these.

  3. As an auto shop repair owner specializing in European vehicles, I got mixed reviews from my clients regarding this tire, some loved the tire and some hated them. I decided to purchase a staggered set of 2353519 2753019 for a 2012 C350 coupe I had lowered in H & Rs. Car is a daily driver just like 99% of people that purchase tires. Most important to me is low tire noise, after 4 summer seasons these tires gave me zero noise! Traction was good in wet and dry as well. When I got the tires, they were already 2 years old prior to install. Not a big concern, as a shop owner this is something I understand that you cant always get fresh fresh rubber. Only down fault was that after one summer season the tires started to crack in the treads which I never really seen in Pirelli (very common in the Michelin Tire Line). All in all, I was very happy with the tires, I felt safe and confident driving at higher speeds (90-100mph range). After 4 summer seasons of driving and maybe 10k – 13k of mileage, the rear tires maybe could pull off one more season but again, the cracks are getting more aggressive. I dont care how many km I get out of a set of tires as long as they are quiet! Would purchase another set to try on a different vehicle. Will install the Michelin 4S as a replacement for these Pirellis

  4. These tires are freakin’ NOISY – particularly the rear! They came with my car new so I bought a replacement set. I should have known better. Buy Michelin only.

  5. These Pirelli P Zero were OEM when we purchased this 2014 Porsche 911 4S in December 2013. On March 8, 2019, we had approximately 54,513 miles on the car, and we had already gone through 4 sets of the rear tires (305/30ZR-20); the last set lasted only 9 months for 8,914 miles! This is the worst treadwear we had experienced since 2004 with three different Porsche 911s. Other than that, these tires are great in performance! By the way, the front tires (245/35ZR20) were OEM lasted 54,513 miles when we changed them out, not because of performance or treadwear, but because of age of the tires (more than 5 years). Now we have a set of four Michelin Pilot Sport 4S N0 (Porsche) XL, which we hope will do better in treadwear than the Pirelli.

  6. These have been great road tires. Good straight line stability. Excellent turn in. Shocking levels of lateral grip. Road noise is good. I had a set of Pilot Super Sports, and I would rank the PZeros as just slightly behind those. Wear has been good, but I have a very neutral alignment and never, ever “launch” my car.At current prices, these are a bargain; if you can get a set as they are constantly back-ordered.

  7. These are the OEM tires and at around 13K on the car, it has now been through 8 of these garbage tires. I’m used to max performance summer tires wearing quick, but this is a bit extreme. These tires do not make you feel very comfortable with the road – they don’t give you the feeling of being planted, aren’t comforting in the wet, and will leave you guessing as to when they’ll break free. As soon as I wear these last 2 out (which shouldn’t be long…), I’ll be away from these forever and will never look back.
