Pirelli is an experienced tire manufacture that has been in business since 1872. Their slogan “Power is nothing without control” likely arose from back in their early days when they were designing a tire that could the speed and power the latest rally cars. Since those times, Pirelli has constantly perfected its tire technology to win races while also meeting the demands and safety standards of everyday drivers.
Pirelli Tire Warranty
The Pirelli Tire Warranty guarantees that any Pirelli Passenger Car Radial or Light Truck Radial Tires will be free from inconsistencies in workmanship and materials. The initial warranty period lasts one year from the date of original retail purchase (purchase receipt required) or within the first 2/32" of original tread, whichever occurs first. If a Run Flat tire becomes unserviceable due to workmanship or material irregularities or road hazard injury during the initial warranty period, the tire will be replaced to the owner at no charge. Run Flat tires have the same mileage warranty as the standard tire line they are part of, up to a maximum of 30,000 miles.
Pirelli Tire Technologies
As mentioned above, Pirelli has specialized knowledge in manufacturing tires that won’t fail under high demand. Pirelli tire technology allowed race cars to drive faster and harder without experiencing a blowout. As such, Pirelli prides itself on its run-flat tire technology.
Seal Inside Technology – Some form of puncture accounts for nearly 85% of accidental tire pressure losses. Luckily, Pirelli’s Cinturato P7 tire can protect you with Seal Inside Technology. This innovation in run-flat tires allows you to drive on a punctured tire without losing tire pressure (so long as the puncture isn’t large enough to ruin the structural integrity of the tire).
Run flat self-supporting technology – Several different elements combine to form Pirelli’s run flat technology. Sidewalls made from new generation compounds increase fatigue resistance and allow for the support of the car’s load in the event of pressure loss. The external Ply-Lines Radii – designed for comfort in normal inflated conditions – provides good handling levels in a low-pressure condition. That’s what allows Pirelli tire models, like the PZero and the Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico, to travel up to 50 miles at a maximum speed of 50 MPH.
