Pirelli P7 Tyres – For a ‘Sporty’ Driving Experience
Equipped with a tread design pattern that maximises handling and steering precision, you should opt for the Pirelli P7 tyres if you are looking to explore the maximum potential of your high performance sports car.
The Pirelli P7 tyres, however, are not to be confused with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 tyres, which are powered by Pirelli’s Green Performance technology and are suitable for medium to larger saloons, and not necessarily associated with ‘sporty’ driving.
Experience ‘Sporty’ Driving with the Pirelli P7 Tyres
Sporty driving is defined as driving where you experience maximum steering precision and control on the car so that you can confidently explore high speeds. Just think about it. Would you be able to touch the maximum speed, if you feel you are losing control or if your vehicle does not respond lightning quick to your steering commands? The answer is no, of course.
And the Pirelli P7 tyres are designed to deliver precisely such performance parameters so that you experience a sporty drive.
- Excellent Handling Characteristics
The Pirelli P7 tyres exhibit an asymmetric tread pattern that maximises the contact patch on wet and dry surface. As a result, the handling characteristics are excellent, giving you quick responses in direction changes, greater manageability, agility and traction on all surfaces. Grip on bends is also enhanced, ensuring cornering stability at high speeds.
- Precision Steering and Braking
The wide compact shoulder blocks of the Pirelli P7 tyres and the wide central ribs ensure constant contact with the surface under all conditions, making the steering responsiveness very precise. The broad ribs also enhance traction to offer very quick braking responsiveness and reduced stopping distances. Thus you have maximum control on the car on all surfaces.
- Superb Wet Safety
The tread pattern exhibits 4 wide longitudinal grooves that increase resistance to aquaplaning by effectively displacing the surface water. Thus wet safety is greatly enhanced when you encounter unexpected surface water at high speeds.
Extended Tyre Life
All these features remain unchanged throughout the tyre life as the tread wear is uniform and thus the tyres last long.
The Pirelli P7 tyres are available in sizes for fitting 15-18 inch alloys and in the load reinforced XL version. Some key manufacturers that have fitted these tyres as OE include Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Volkswagen.

I have used Pirelli tyres on most of my vehicles over some 45 years and have always been impressed by the resistance to wear and the grip they have provided.
