The Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres are ultra-high performance summer tyres from Pirelli Tyres created especially for modern sports cars fitted with electronic drive and stability control systems. In terms of applications, they are perfectly fitted for medium to high powered cars and saloons. While bringing in high levels of performance, the Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres enhance the levels of driving comfort too. It is interesting to note that the term ‘Rosso’ in the tyre name comes from the Italian word for red. Red of course is the colour firmly associated with Italian motor racing. (Just close your eyes and picture a Ferrari racing car. Be honest, did you not picture the car red?)
The Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres are part of Pirelli’s high performance PZero range that interestingly has another colour-derived tyre name. In the popular Pirelli PZero Nero tyres fitted on personalised performance tuned up vehicles, ‘nero’ is Italian for black. The Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres comprise both directional and asymmetrical tread pattern tyres. In many vehicles, directional and asymmetric Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres are used together in the front and rear axle respectively. And this is referred to as the Pirelli PZero Rosso system.
The Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres include both directional and asymmetrical tread patterns. Both formats of the tyres deliver high levels of aquaplaning resistance, steering responsiveness, ride comfort, and reduced tyre noise levels.
High aquaplaning resistance: The Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres with directional tread exhibit directional arrow grooves along with the wide circumferential channels. These together form a strong water expulsion system, enhancing the aquaplaning resistance. In the asymmetrical Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres too, four wide circumferential grooves are present, which increase the resistance to aquaplaning. Thus you can look forward to maximum safety, stability and control on wet surface.
Increased steering and braking responsiveness: The presence of a semi-slick stabilising central rib in the Pirelli Pzero Rosso tyres (characteristic of all PZero asymmetrical tyres) contributes to directional stability and increases the steering responsiveness. The compact tread blocks in the outer tyre shoulder of the asymmetrical Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres increase grip and traction and enhance braking responsiveness.
Ride comfort: A special construction of the tyre carcass promotes high levels of comfort in the Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres. You can experience comfort levels akin to high performance flagship cars.
Reduced noise levels: The Pirelli PZero Rosso tyres are one of the quietest ultra high performance tyres, using technology specifically to meet the stringent acoustic pollution standards.
