I have used Pirelli Snowcontrol Serie 11 for the past 3 winters. in 2010 when we had heavy snow in the UK (Essex) Our Renault Modus (15" tyres) was one of the only cars that was able to be used in my home area, a lot of my neighbours were amazed that my snow tyres were That Good.
In 2011, on another Renault (scenic) we again had no problems with the vehicle fitted with the same type Pirelli tyres, but this time they were 16"
Not much snow in 2012 but lots of ice and again in the Modus with 15" tyres we had no problems, The tyres were just fantastic in the Icy conditions.
I have no connections to Pirelli but due to the Snowcontrol tyres I look to them to keep us safe in the winter months.
My summer tyres are Michelin but when it's time to change them I will have a difficult decision as to: keep with Mich, or change to Pirelli.
I drive with the winter tires about 8000km in 2 mounts is on verry good condition,is perfect on snow and rain....for the dry roud is noise...i drive most of the roud in england,belgium germany,austria,hungary and romania most of the km on the high-way...
I recomand this tires...
I have been a Pirelli customer for 5 years. The snow tyres are fantastic and I feel much more confident in the snow/ice. I can get up steep hills where I never could before I used Pirelli. I would recommend these to anyone.
These tyres give good road grip during slippy conditions and I would not want to be without them.
I can now get up and down hills without the worry of slipping.
I am very pleased with these tyres and will buy them again.
Pirelli SnowConrtol 3 is one of the best tyres, provides a great driving comfort in the snow, unfortunately the newer treads don't do such a good job.
Pirelli SnowControl 3 195/55 R16 87 H RUN ON FLAT *, FR
The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
Benefits from Pirelli Snowcotrol Serie 3:
Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.
Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.
Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
