Pirelli Winter 240 Sottozero Tire Reviews

Product Details
Winter 240 Sottozero tires are Pirelli's "dual-season" Performance Winter tires that were developed to be effective as temperatures approach freezing and below from mid-autumn until early spring by offering hot performance compared to summer tires when driven on dry, wet or icy cold surfaces. Winter Sottozero tires are for the drivers of high performance sport cars, coupes and sedans who don't let their enthusiasm for driving cool off in winter.

The Winter Sottozero tread compound utilizes cap and base technology that combines two different compounds. The upper strata (cap) that comes into contact with the road surface uses Pirelli's latest generation silanes to bind the silica and polymer to provide greater stability during hard driving in both wet and dry conditions. The sub-strata in contact with the casing (base) uses nano-composites (aluminum silicates) dispersed throughout the polymer to provide the stiffness that enhances stability and driving precision. The tread compound is molded into an asymmetric tread pattern divided into distinct inner and outer elements to blend traction in light snow and on ice with drivability on dry and wet roads. On the inside, they utilize Pirelli's ultra high performance tire structures to offer levels of performance not normally associated with winter tires.

All Winter Sottozero Performance Winter tires meet the industry's severe snow service requirements and are branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol.
