Pirelli Sottozero Snow Tyres-Preparing the Ferrari FF for Winter

Pirelli Sottozero Snow Tyres

Pirelli Sottozero Snow Tyres

Now that the Ferrari FF has returned to the UK. Of course, where unsurprisingly the weather is not quite as nice. So, as it has been experiencing for the previous 3 months based in Monaco.

I have moved over to winter tyres. The standard summer Pirelli P-zero tyres are swapped to the Pirelli Sottozero winter rubber. So that I can now continue to use it truly as a daily car even in winter. Typically my luck would now make it that we don’t experience snow this winter so maybe I’ll make a trip to the Alps with the car in due course!
