Pirelli Winter 210 Sottozero 2 Reviews (newest first) - Page 1

Given 73% while driving a Ford Mondeo (205/55 R16 H) on mostly country roads for 1,327 easy going miles
Not much snow this year for me to try them out but felt confident in the wet at temperatures around 0-4 deg C. Fuel consumption dropped by about 7%. Road noise lets you know you have a big tread pattern. Am swapping them for summer tyres now to save wear. Have towed a caravan with them and driven with a full load (4 adults, 2 dogs, child and presents) at Christmas with no drama. I have not been near the limit for corner grip so cannot comment re progressiveness but overtakes are not a problem. At 1327 miles this winter I hope never to have to replace this set but if I change my job I would consider on a new car.

Given 60% while driving a Volvo s60 D5 (163) (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
Positive: great tyre on wet and dry road quite good in snow
Negative side - extremely noisy compared to other big brands and that's enough for me not to buy them again. On previous winters I've used Vredestein Wintrac, Dunlop Winter Sport, Good Years and Marangoni Meteo HP but NONE of these were as noisy as these pirellis.
My advice: If you think spending well over £100 for a tyre just avoid these pirrelis as you'll be disappointed unless the loud tyre noise won't bother you.

Given 90% while driving a BMW 320D (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 2,000 easy going miles
Recommended by BMW, & put on all 4 wheels. I have had no problems in snow & ice & they have performed as expected. I feel confident driving with these tyres.
