Features & Specs - Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season[H]
Speed rating Speed rating. This letter denotes the maximum sustainable speed and is found directly after the load index. For S-speed-rated tires, it's 112 mph; for T, 118 mph. Speed ratings for other tires include Q, 99 mph; H, 130 mph; V, 149 mph; and Z, 150 mph plus. While such speeds may seem wildly impractical, tires with higher speed ratings tend to provide better handling at legal speed limits. Choose tires that have a speed rating at least as high as the one specified on your vehicle's placard.
Treadwear warranty Commonly used by tire manufacturers to market tires, the warranty describes the typical tread life of the tire. Consumers should view the warranty an indicator of tread life only. Actual mileage will vary with vehicle type, driving style, road, and weather conditions, just to name a few variables. Nearly all treadwear warranties are based on pro-rated amount based on the usable tread worn off the tire.
UTQG treadwear UTQGS, which stands for Uniform Tire Quality Grading System, is a federal government required grading system for passenger tires excluding winter tires. Key information includes Treadwear, Traction, and Temperature appearing on the sidewall of a tire. UTQG treadwear, an index developed by the government, compares a tire's tread life with that of a reference tire graded at 100. A tire with a grade of 300 is predicted to last three times as long as one graded at 100. Treadwear grades are just one indicator of tread life, but actual tire life will vary due to a number of factors including road conditions, driving habits, vehicle, and maintenance.
UTQG traction UTQGS, which stands for Uniform Tire Quality Grading System, is a federal government required grading system for passenger tires excluding winter tires. Key information includes Treadwear, Traction, and Temperature appearing on the sidewall of a tire. UTQG traction indicates the tire's ability to stop on a wet surface with Government grades of AA, A, B, C, from best to worst.
UTQG temperature UTQGS, which stands for Uniform Tire Quality Grading System, is a federal government required grading system for passenger tires excluding winter tires. Key information includes Treadwear, Traction, and Temperature appearing on the sidewall of a tire. UTQG temperature indicates the tire's ability to resist heat build-up under test conditions with Government grades of A, B, C, from best to worst.
These came stock on my 2015 VW GTI and while they handle well, the come with no mileage warranty and one failed after 1200 miles. My rear right tire was losing air, which set off my TPS. America's tires found the split in the sidewall where it meets the tread, but could not explain how it was damaged. There was no puncture mark. America's Tires called Pirelli, who said they would give me 10% off a new tire. Worthless. Would not purchase again.

Work Fine For Me
Good In Snow
Good In The Wet
None so far
Replaced stock Korean tires on new Soul+ with P7 Pirellis. These are quiet, have had NO traction issues no matter the weather or conditions. They do pretty well in the snow, are fine in the wet, and overall I'm quite pleased with them. They hold pressure very well. I see complaints about tread life. I'll rotate them at 7500-8000 as per KIA recommendation and report back if there are issues. I see no discernible tread wear. Chinese company is buying Pirelli.

Do not buy these tires
These tires are horrible. Installed on '09 328 x drive. After 10K started getting loud. Sounded like it could bearings, but it was not.<br /><br />Between 40 and 60 mph it has become unbearable.<br /><br />Pirelli blames it on the alignment. Paid for alignment, it was perfect.<br /><br />They come with NO mileage warranty. That was my missed red flag.<br /><br />Do not buy these tires.
