    This tire utilizes structural technology that places Pirelli amongst the leaders in the ultra high performance segment, speed code "W" (up to 270km/h) for Winter Sottozero 270.

    Winter SOTTOZERO™ Series II is designed to actively react in the presence of wet asphalt and low external temperatures (under 7°C), contrasting with great success the phenomenon of aquaplaning. It represents a versatile and safe answer for optimal driving conditions in all fall and winter weather conditions: dry, wet or snow covered surfaces do not make a difference, Winter SOTTOZERO™ Series II guarantees the best performance on all surfaces.

    It is characterised by wide moulded grooves, in order to effectively expel the water.special water containment basins (HST – Hydro Static Tank) a Pirelli patent that guarantees a better containment of the water in the grooves in order to sensibly reduce the phenomenon of aquaplaning.

    IMPORTANT: It is not recommended to mix the Winter Sottozero and the Winter Sottozero Serie II tires

    Just got these tires put on and now I can see why Pirelli is the choice for many sports cars in Germany for the Winter. I had Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 summer performance tires before I got these. And they were fantastic when it was dry and not too cold. Now that it's colder, I find these Pirellis very sticky because they're much software (as a winter tire should be), and with the road even a little wet, they perform better than the Michelins. I did go with slightly wider tires, so maybe that's helping with traction, but so far I'm impressed. The Michelins would need some time to warm up to get sticky, while these I feel safe right from the start. I like to whip out my rear tail a bit while turning sometimes, and with these tires it's harder todo because they have more grip. I thought that going to winter tires I would lose performance, but I couldn't be happier. We don't get snow very often here, maybe ice once in a while. So far I haven't had to deal with either so I can't speak of the performance of the tires in that kind of weather, but I drove through deep and shallow puddles and have not experienced any hydroplaning so far. If you're looking for performance Winter tires that don't disappoint, these are the ones to get. Very difficult to find in stock this year, but they are worth it. If you need something where there is constant snow/ice, maybe these wouldn't be the ones for you because it seems like they are tailored for performance, although the groove pattern would make you believe otherwise. I'll have to see how good they are in the snow, and if they are good in snow, too, I'll be really impressed. Usually it's a trade off between performance and snow traction.

    This is not a snow tire, if you live in areas with constant snow, better avoid them and get something with a more aggressive profile. In dry and slush, they are the best cold weather tires I had. If you have a sport car and want to drive it hard on cold wather, these tires are perfect for you. If you want a safe commute for your run of the mill car, stay away.

    I rated these tires last year and I am now on the second winter. I was not happy having to remount these knowing how disappointing they were. Now that we are through winter, I notice that they are wearing heavily too. These tires are so bad, I had to find my old review and give an update. After 2 Quebec winters, here is the summary: Mounted on a 2011 A4 Quattro Very prone to spin due to the close tread pattern and rounded edges Understeers in any depth of snow (I already hit a curb and caused $4K damage) Did not notice great Ice grip Noisy Wear like butter (2x5k and reaching the wear bars) Asymetric tread means one side of the tire is pumping water outwards and the other is pumping water inwards My FWD passat with Goodyear Nordic tires grip, steer, stop, and track better than these at 1/5 the price. I cannot believe these are being made let alone recommended.

    Not a great winter tire. We have these mounted on a 2011 A4 Quattro. We live in Montreal and have had 3-4 feet of snow this year. I immediately noticed that these were very prone to spin and understeer in any depth of snow due to the close tread pattern and rounded edges. Ice grip is not great either. I already hit a curb and broke a rim. Our 2003 A4 Quattro had Pirelli Winter Carving - type tires and they stuck like staples. My FWD passat with Goodyear Nordic tires grip, steer, stop, and track better than these at 1/5 the price. Same noise level as well so no benefit there. Also, the Asymetric tread means one side is pumping water away from the center of the tire and the other is pumping water inwards if they are mounted in a mirror. Not recommended at all.
