Pirelli All-Season Tyres

Only a couple of years ago we had a clear distinction between summer tyres and winter tyres. This were much easier then?

Moving on to today’s tyre market, things are very different. Tyre manufacturers are capitalising. Hence, on the fact that motorists are indeed thinking more on the lines of safety. So, are fitting more and more winter tyres.

Of course, there are different types of tyres. Consequently, match different weather and road conditions.  Tread pattern plays a major role. Because, it is the part of the tyre that comes into contact with the road. Naturally, providing most of the traction.

Winter tyres are totally different to summer tyres. Therefore, in today’s tyre market then winter have to made in many sizes. So, to meet the demand of different types of vehicles.

Pirelli All-Season Tyres to meet the demands of SUV’s

All the latest powerful SUV’s have to be catered for? winter performance tyres  have millions of  small slits. Known as “sipes” built into the tread pattern. Of course pirelli scorpion winter tyres  are an excellent choice and are comparable to the pirelli scorpion verde tyres.

As a result, which allow more rubber to be in contact with the road. While at the same time dispelling the water , slush and snow away. Due to the action of these variable sized sipes.

Pirelli are the latest tyre maker to introduce a new tyre. Hence, that are compatible for summer and winter driving . Subsequently, in countries that do not have harsh winters. Italy is a good example. Of course including here in the UK.

Many European countries do have a winter tyre law. This makes it compulsory to fit winter tyres in certain months. Whereas Italy does enforce the use of winter tyres. Then the UK do not?

Snow can always be a problem. Especially, if you live near the Alps? Italian Law requires that all cars are fitted with either winter tyres or snow chains on most major roads; including motorways; from 15 November-15 April .

Indecently, snow tyres are defined by a symbol on the tyre sidewall. This has a three-peak-mountain with snowflake embedded on the sidewall.

WINTER SOTTOZERO 3 Latest Pirelli winter offering

Of course, just like all tyre manufacturers then Pirelli have brought out their latest winter offering. Including the pirelli sottozero run flat winter tyres. Importantly for owners of vehicles with the run-flat technology tyre fitted and living in snowy areas.

Like the UK. So in France, winter tyres have not been made mandatory. However they insist on snow chains and spikes. Especially when driving to the ski resorts . Say in the “Alps”.

The solution may be to carry a set of all-season tyres, which can then be used on snow roads as well provided it has the “three-peak-mountain with snowflake” emblem mark on it.

Acknowledging tyre growth in all-season tyres in the UK, Pirelli continues to recommend the use of winter tyres for its target performance car market, especially in extreme conditions.

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!

Thanks to Pirelli and to Protyre Bishops Stortford, please check out:
