The Pirelli P Zero has been named “Tyre of the Year” in a leading car magazine award contest.
Auto Express magazine has chosen the Pirelli tyre ahead of three other competing tyres brands to receive its top honour.
The Italian tyres manufacturer won the award with the P Zero because it offers the best balance of braking and handling in the wet and dry, aquaplaning, rolling resistance and price.
Auto Express commented: “Designing tyres is all about trading off performance in one area for a gain in another.
“However, Pirelli has certainly hit on a winning compromise here, as the P ZeroTM starred not only in the wet, but also in the dry.”
The magazine added: “It topped the times on both handling tracks, plus got the honours in curved aquaplaning. No wonder it inspires confidence when the heavens open. A great all-rounder that thoroughly deserves a place on your car.”
