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.
The Pirelli SottoZero is a winter tyre designed for premium passenger cars with a high performance engine. The innovative compound used to make the tyre is noted for its excellent flexibility, giving the model increased contact with the ground and better grip in any weather and on any surface.
The tyre features an asymmetric tread pattern with two independent parts to ensure optimal performance during the winter season. The outer part of the tread is responsible for traction on wet roads. Its deep and wide circumferential grooves with a variable profile have a large capacity and help quickly and effectively disperse water from under the front of the tyre. This helps minimise the risk of aquaplaning and improves driver safety. Massive blocks in the shoulder area are responsible for stability when negotiating corners and during dynamic manoeuvres. The design of the Pirelli SottoZero has been stiffened to ensure a fast response to sudden steering movements, which has a positive impact on accurate track stability. The internal part of the tread is responsible for shorter braking distances on ice, snow and mud, as well as grip in extreme weather conditions. The tyre ensures acoustic comfort thanks to its special grooves and optimised tread pattern. Sounds and vibrations emitted whilst driving on Pirelli SottoZero tyres are quickly muffled, which means that the driver and passengers can enjoy a quiet and comfortable driving experience. This model is the perfect solution for demanding drivers looking for a tyre that offers excellent performance, whatever the weather.

I bought the tyres in December, and the review is being written in the spring. Winter was as we have seen. There was snow, ice, rain and it also was dry with temperatures like 15 degrees. In all conditions the car's behaviour was predictable. Sensational in deep snow, on ice ABS was switching on but the car kept the driving direction and could be controlled. If you overcharge and feel that one of the axles starts to swerve, it is enough to slow down and the tyres immediately grip back. When you get a feeling of it, you are able to drive safely and much faster than other road users, which is why driving in winter ha been giving me great pleasure. On warm and dry pavement the tyres can hum a bit at more than 55 MPH but it is not bothersome. After 7000 miles the tyres look like new, they only lost their "spikes". Pirelli SottoZero are my first winter tyres, so I have nothing to compare them with, but seeing the behaviour of other cars in the same conditions, I have to admit that most of the cars had no chance with mine. In the previous car I used summer tyres all year round and I know I won't do it again. I won't endanger my family's life any more. Pirelli SottoZero are great tyres which I recommend to everyone!
My assessment is not an assessment, but rather a kind of reaction because I feel dizzy when I read some of the reviews - I only did about 350 miles on them but when I read that on slippery or wet surfaces they're useless, then I thinkt that anyone who writes such a review either is not a driver, or they simply do not have them. AS for now, I have testem them in light conditions, I drive quite aggressively and I can say they are sensational, I had many different tyres but Pirelli SottoZero even at temperatures of 10 degrees above zero, no matter if it's wet or dry, are a hundred times better than Uniroyal Rallye 550, and they are really good... I'll write a new review after the winter, but as for now in the rain and on dry, no matter if it's 1 degree below zero or +10 - Pirelli SottoZero are one of the best.
I think the purchase of Pirelli SottoZero was a legitimate expense, I was shocked after last season, after fitting new tires in the autumn still in summer-like conditions they behaved better, driving on dry was sensational - in the corners after a slight turn of the wheel the tyres just made the car go in the desired direction - it's also because of sports suspension and a quattro drive. It is also because the tyres are Pirellis. On snow and ice they're also brilliant, quattro accelerates better than brakes in heavier conditions. It's nothing special when braking on ice, but 9it's not a suprise - 1,7 T under the car's hood speaks for itself, However, Pirelli SottoZero still stand out before its competitors, it's very stable at higher speeds - 120 MPH on these winter tyres is nothing uncommon.
I fell in love with these tyres the day I bought them. So far, I have used various winter tyres fom many well-known companies but I won't be offending them... however maybe I should. Pirelli SottoZero are great both on snow and slush and in other conditions, however I recommend them only to people who have powerful and fast cars and at the same time they like to use their power, because the tyres have one quite strange feature - the faster and more aggressive you go, the better they behave; the more you seem to risk, the more they stick to the road - for me, it's sensational. But if someone drives slowly and carefully in winter, it's better they bought something cheaper.
After fitting the tyres to a 2007 Audi A4, it turned out the vehicle swerves to the right. After a full diagnosis of the authorized Audi service, which claimed that the wheel alignment is correct, the car didn't suffer from an accident (so there's no possibility that something's crooked), service technicians came to the conclusion that the factor which causes the problem are my new "super tyres" which were Pirelli SottoZero. A warranty procedure of the manufacturer is a total disaster. The result of my careful purchase is the financial loss connected to servicing at Audi service, costs of experts and a lot of wasted time. I do not recommend buying these tyres.
