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 Serie 3 is a winter tyre designed for mid-range and premium passenger cars. Thanks to its directional tread pattern, the model quickly disperses water, minimising the risk of aquaplaning and thus maintaining grip and safety, whatever the weather.
The compound used to make the tyre maintains excellent flexibility across a wide range of temperatures, increasing the contact surface between the tyre and the road, resulting in better driving stability. Optimal traction on snow is provided by the tyre tread with a wide central rib, fitted with blocks in the shape of double arrows. The 3D blades are responsible for good manoeuvrability on dry roads and excellent grip on snow. On wet roads, two longitudinal grooves quickly disperse water and improve driving precision. The rounded side of the tyre helps effectively disperse water and maintain stability when going round corners and during dynamic manoeuvres. Thanks to its innovative compound and optimised tread pattern, the model has a longer lifetime and is more resistant to mechanical damage. The designers of the Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3 have also achieved an even distribution of pressure on the tyre. This means that the tread wears evenly and the tyre offers its full performance specifications for its entire lifetime. The model is a very good solution for drivers who value both optimal performance and good driveability on any surface, as well as safety and comfort in difficult conditions.

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 :-)
