I was thinking for a long time before buying tyres for the winter, I chose these and I do not regret it. I was a little scared to buy lover quality tyres for a heavy car with a rear drive. It is true that there was no winter this year, but when it snowed, I especially traveled on unpaved roads, and I did not bury in even once, and I drove into more and more difficult corners. I am pleased with them. You know, you can fall into the back drive, but only when you want it. In the case of a quiet ride, nothing can happen. I had to turn off the ESP for turning back under the house because I could not throw my back and turn around 180 degrees on these tyres :) The tread looks like new, despite the fact that it was used mainly asphalted roads because the winter was weak. I see that I’m good good for a next few years. When I will be choosing summer tyres, for sure I’ll choose Pirelli. I recommend it to all :)
At first glance, you can see that the tyres are high quality which was also noticed by the mechanic who installed them. If someone wants to experience how much difference in grip the winter tyres can give, then I recommend these ones. The wet and dry road are indistinguishable, the snow blot is slightly noticeable. Driving on the broken snow is just a bit worse, you can feel that the tyres are working. The worst performance is on the clayey blotter – the tyres deal with it, but the difference compared to summer tyres is minimal. The main defect of the tyres is their volume. I must admit that I did not appreciate how loud the tyres can be. In addition to the classic noise, which is noticeably more intense, there is also an additional, much higher sound, which I can only describe as a strong wind that is comparable to a swist.
I bought the Pirelli SottoZero 3 tyres recently, but I can already confirm that they are really fantastic! I have BMW with 218hp engine and the tyres were tested with "H" speed index which have limit up to 130mph. I wanted to test their survivability and noise, so I speeded up to 149mph and they have passed this test. The noise - tyres are quiet, great performance. Grip - yet I didn't have the situation in which I could check the full grip, but the dynamic drive is not a problem for these tyres. These are the best winter tyres I have ever had. If it comes to the survivability, I have them for a short period of time to say something about it, but I certainly let you know when I make more miles. The price is excellent. Just to praise Oponeo, I would like to underline the great service and the time of delivery.
Very impressed with the Sottozero 3, having used Nokian and Verdestein winters I was a little wary of moving to pirelli but these were a great price and had good reviews. Wasn't sure how effective they would be on a 245 18 as my previous vehicles have had a far narrower 16 inch wheel. Got caught out on a very steep hill after a heavy snow shower one evening. The tyre bit through and would only slip on excessive throttle. No other 2WD vehicles made it up the hill. Very quiet on the motorway and no noticeable difference with the MPG. Excellent in the dry, had better in the wet but certainly no real issues. Would highly recommend if you can get them at the right price. Can't comment on wear yet but certainly doesn't seem excessive.
In the size 245/40R19 the run flat version is available only in 2 winter tyre models on the market. Falken HS 449 and Pirelli Sotozero 3 (there is also the older version of the second model). The first season I had Falkens (because at the time of picking up the car only those were available), and now I had to buy new tyres, because the Falkenes cracked from the inside (small cracks in all 4 tyres through which the air slowly escaped - shock !!!). After mounting the Pirelli tyres the difference is colossal on the plus. Incomparably quieter, great in all conditions. I recommend them to everyone who can afford them :-)
Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3 255/30 R20 92 W XL, FR, L
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.
Technical description: The Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3 is a winter tyre designed for mid-range and premium passenger cars. It offers excellent resistance to various conditions and deformation, as well as to the burden of intensive use. This can be attributed to the use of an ultra-modern rubber compound during its manufacture. This compound means that the tyre can be used even during very difficult driving conditions. On wet, snowy or icy surfaces, the tyre quickly disperses water and slush from under the wheels thanks to the use of a directional tread pattern with V-shaped grooves. Wide and thick tread blocks help maintain perfect grip and stability whilst driving, including when negotiating corners.
Information about the manufacturer: The Italian brand Pirelli is one of the most popular tyre manufacturers in the world. It specialises in tyres designed for vehicles with a high performance engine, including sports cars. The fact that Pirelli tyres are widely used in motor sports, including Formula 1, is testament to the high quality of the company's products. Pirelli manufactures premium, top quality tyres.
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.
