Pirelli has expanded its range of all-season tyres with the addition of 22 new sizes between 16 and 19 inches for its Cinturato All Season Plus and Scorpion Verde All Season SF families.
Both ranges are available with Pirelli’s ‘Seal Inside’ technology, which allows drivers to keep going with no loss of tyre pressure, in case of punctures up to four millimetres.
Pirelli claims the new additions mean it covers around 90 per cent of the potential all-season market.
The Cinturato All Season Plus, for cars with 15 to 20 inch wheels, is designed for people who primarily drive in cities without having to worry about weather or regulations that oblige winter tyres.
This evolution of the original Cinturato All Season range benefits from a special directional tread pattern design that optimises water expulsion through two wide longitudinal and lateral channels, reducing aquaplaning. The innovative design also means reduced noise, both on the inside and the outside, enhancing driving pleasure.
Another distinctive trait of the new Cinturato All Season Plus is its 3D blades. The pattern is designed to optimise the movement of the tread blocks to guarantee better performance under braking and through corners. This also makes the wear profile of the tyre more even, while extending tyre life.
In snowy weather, the blocks open out and capture snow, delivering excellent roadholding. That’s why the All Season Plus is marked with the M+S symbol as well as the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol: the hallmark of total safety in winter conditions.
Pirelli offers the Scorpion Verde All Season SF for drivers of SUVs or crossovers: a tyre well-suited to both summer and winter that’s also marked with the M+S as well as the three-peak mountain snowflake symbols, guaranteeing safety in cold weather.
The specific design of the tread pattern and blocks delivers excellent handling both in snowy and wet conditions, with perfect traction and lateral stability, along with low road noise. Completing the attributes of this tyre is a long life and low rolling resistance, helping to save money on fuel.
The Scorpion Verde All Season tyres are also available with Pirelli’s ‘Self-Supporting Run Flat’ option.
These tyres are specifically designed to keep the car stable in the event of a puncture, allowing motorists to drive another 80 km safely at a maximum speed of 80kph. It works thanks to reinforcements built in to the tyre’s sidewall, which are capable of supporting the weight of the car as well as all the forces acting on it: even with no internal tyre pressure.
The all-season range is rounded off by the Carrier All Season for vans and light commercial vehicles. This tyre is very easy to drive, with a long life, low rolling resistance and excellent performance in all conditions. Furthermore, the Carrier All Season is a class leader in wet conditions and equipped with the M+S and three-peak mountain snowflake symbols to guarantee performance in moderate winter conditions.
