The P-Zero Nero GT (nero Italian for black) is Pirelli’s Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of sports cars, sporty coupes and medium-large sedans. As the evolution of Pirelli’s earlier P-Zero Nero, the P-Zero Nero GT introduces their latest technological developments to enhance product performance and tread life. Pirelli’s warranty does not cover tires that develop compound cracking due to use in ambient temperatures below 450 Fahrenheit (70 Celsius), so the P-Zero Nero GT, like all summer tires, is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
Featuring a new compound, the P-Zero Nero GT has a balanced content of silica in order to enhance wear resistance without compromising the sportive feeling of the product in both dry and wet conditions. The compound is molded into a subtle asymmetric, wide rib tread design to increase the rigidity of the tread to resist deformation and enhance grip and steering response on a variety of road surfaces while enhancing resistance to irregular wear and generating low noise levels. Optimized in their position and width, the tire’s circumferential grooves are designed to maximize dry road performance while enhancing hydroplaning resistance.
Featuring a high-technology casing profile, the tire’s internal structure includes rayon body plies and twin steel belts reinforced by zero degree nylon that evenly distribute footprint pressure and resist deformation to promote high-speed durability.
