What tyres were fitted to the S350?


Recommended Posts

I know they're Pirelli P-Zero but were they Asimmetrico, Nero, Rosso...?

Thanks,

Neal

May: DON'T hit it with a hammer!

Clarkson: Why?

May: Cause it's the tool of a pikey.

They were asimmetrico (yellow)

Pzero Rossos' didn't come out until later.

I had several sets of V8 sized Pzero Rossos...

I won't buy them again. If you were wondering.

The grip was good until the tread worea little, and then they couldn't clear water.

Also I had a front totally start to fall apart from a molding defect that made it through Pirelli's quality checks.

Ive just had a look at my Lotus build records and yeah does not say which P-Zero. I have only read car mag reviews at the time which if I remember say they were equiped with asimmetrico (sp) .

I think Pirellis are over rated for what they are, having used them on the Audi I didnt go back.

"Been there, done that," Kylie. Have to agree. After two sets of Pirelli P6000 "ditchfinders" on the 535i, and one too many scares in the wet, I decided I loved my kids too much and switched to Michelin Pilots. So far, so good. :sweat:

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.

thats what your problem is with the pirellis -the profile blocks/flanks are in an greater angle:

if the profile would have more drain volume, and it is more rectangular -than the changing effect would not be so harsh... .
