Pirelli P Zero Nero

Hi,

Anyone running Pirelli P Zero Nero? I've heard lot of good thing about these tires. Just like to get some feedback from fellow E46 fanatics

How's the grip on dry and wet pavment? How hard does it let loose when you lose grip? How long do they last? Any other recommendation on tires?

Thanks!

We've had very good experiences with these tires. I'd say they're just a slight step down in grip/steering response from an S-03 or GSD3, but have a bit better ride.

Check out :

and go to 'test results' toward the top of the page for a bit more info.

Tirerack is the first place I checked for info about these tires, I checked the test results and read all the feedbacks

Ok thanks for your input. The tires are going to be used on the street, no track. So the slightly lesser dry grip isn't too much important compared to all the other advantages of the Nero.
