I think you might be confusing these with the old Pzero Assymetricos, which were not all that great.

my rear tires wore out in last than a year, went bald in less than 10000 miles. Front tires were half worn. Performances were ok but not really for spirited driving. -- Review Submitted 2004-03-17

I intially purchased the Neros because of the fantastic price, but Im very happy with the performance that theyve given me. Ive been driving aggressively on these tires for almost 10,000 miles now including 4 autocrosses. Theyve been holding up great and look like they will last for at least another 5,000 miles. They have been competitive in my region, helping me bring home a few trophies. I previously ran Yokohama ES100s and Im much happier with the Pirellis. -- Review Submitted 2004-03-11

If you live in Southern Cal and drive the freeways, this tire will scare you. I replaced a set of Yoko ES 100 with the Nero and took them off two days later. Very bad tramlining on the grooved freeway sections. I am back on ES 100 and very happy. The Neros may be a good tire for other parts of the country but not LA. -- Review Submitted 2004-02-07

1995 BMW M3

Miles driven on tires:

4.50

Location: Redondo Beach , Ca

Driving Condition:
Combined Highway/City
Driving Style: Average



On Southern California freeways, I am petrified with these tires. They tramline so severely to the extent that drivers around me back off because they think Im drunk. Its all I can do just to hold onto the car. On paved roads, they are vague at best. I have tried various pressures. I thought Pirelli was making a comeback. Even at $105 each, they would not be recommended by me. -- Review Submitted 2003-09-29

Terrible!

Pros: None
Cons: Everything

These were the OE tires on my Boxster S. They were noisy and thumpy from day one. Balancing and alignment helped only a little bit and only for a short time. Handling was only average. Wear was average (25,000 miles), but I would have been better off if they had worn out sooner. Overall, these were the worst tires I have had in 20 years!
