Written on: 16/04/2010 by ernie77 (1 review written)

Tecently returned to the Pirellis following Goodyear and Dunlop on the same and very similar cars. At £65 fitted from a local garage they are little more expensive than the 'budget'tyres and significantly better than those mentioned earlier.
No confidence issues, although they do wear a little quicker than others I've used. At the right price, there is little better… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2010

My advice would be to avoid these tyres like the plague. They are absolutley rubbish in wet slushy snow. I have them on my saab and despite being a front wheel drive was unable to move the car for 3 weeks even a slight amount if ice or snow is impossible. Every one of my neighbours were able to get their cars moving. Cant wait to replace them… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2010

Decent tyres - best priced premium tyres. Picked these up off Blackcircles.com online - cheapest by far - and local fitter said that these tyres were good value.
They grip the road well, even when pushed. Not the best looking tyre - but when you are throwing your car into a corner you want performance not looks.

will be back for another set of these when they are due for replacement… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/11/2009

My wife has them fitted to her BMW and told me that she was very nervous about them as she wasn't at all happy with their roadholding. As the tyres were fairly new, I thought that it must have been down to road conditions, or dare I say it, bad driving. But I used her car last week and skidded heavily in a roundabout, on a dry surface. Very dangerous in my view and I'm arranging for the tyres to be changed immediately… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/10/2009

Bought two new P6000 (225/45/17/91Y) last November. 13000 miles and need to be replaced. Don't like them for noise. My last Volvo (205/55 R16 91w)had Michelin Pilot Primacy HP's and were far superior. Particularly regarding road noise. So I will be replacing all four with new Michelin's very soon. I wouldn't advise anyone to buy these Pirelli's… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/10/2009

I have run these tires for the last 2 years, they generally cost more but I think that they are better than both Dunlop SP300E and Michelin Primacy.
However the technology in this tire is old, 1995, and Pirelli don't even mention them on thier website. My P6000's lasted approximately 20,000 miles and there was 3mm of tread left. I think that this is reasonable given that they have a relatively low treadware index at 180. The tires are rather noisey which is probably due to the rather stiff… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2009

I've driven 32000 miles with these on the front of my Skoda Superb diesel. Many of my miles have been on the motorway. They are not as good in the wet as they are in the dry, but I've never felt like I was in trouble. They've just passed the MOT, although they warned me that they will soon need replacing. Not bad though! I'm replacing them with a new set of P6000s, of course - from Black Circles on an offer of £68 each… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2009 by achristo (1 review written)

I drove many cars for 30K Miles per year...always hard, I don't do school runs or weekends.
Latest 2 cars were front wheel drive, tuned Fiat Marea at 235 BHP and Tuned Skoda Octavia VRs at 270 BHp.

I ran Goodyear (OK), Toyo (humm OK) etc always looking for good grip and a comfortable drive espcially with the skoda that drives like a brick on stilts in an echo chamber.

The Skoda was so bad and understeering like a real pig so I even bought SMALLER wheels to be able to go back to P6000s....and… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/05/2009 by smmg (1 review written)

I have two Pirelli P6000 tyres on the rear of my VW Golf mk4, and I drive this car for about 3 weeks. I drive smoothly, but already had the feeling that these tyres may not have such a good grip on dry weather. Yesterday I was absolutely sure that I must replace them urgently. With just a few drops of rain, cornering at about 10-15km/h, I found myself perpendicular to the road. When trying to get back to the correct position, the rear tyres just slided and turned me perpendicular again, this… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/04/2009

Pirelli P6000 provided good grip in a variety of conditions and continued to grip well right up to the wear blocks. I drive nearly 2000 miles each week and spend much time in Europe at high speeds so give tires a battering these tires lasted 18,000 miles on the front which is good and better than Dunlop SP which I had before 12,000 miles. Have now put on Michelin to see if I can get an improved life… Read Full Review

I have the Pirelli P6000 tyres on the back of my BMW 740 and I drive the car hard especially as I like to get the back out a bit.
These tyres last me at least 20k which I think is plenty for this type of driving style… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/08/2008

My Jaguar X type has a full set on it and they are great! I do 600 miles in 2 days every week and only check that the pressure is right once a month! (It never drops by more than 1 psi). I've never had anything go wrong with the tires only a ripped tire wall from avioding a BMW in a carpark! The rubber is soft but that is why they have high levels of grip… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/08/2008

I had the Pirelli P6000 on an SLK230 the inner side walls began to bulge one after the other. I changed them for Bridgestones, no problem with these. I then had a Saab Aero convertable with these same tyres fitted. Low and behold, I had the same problem. The tyres were fairly young with plenty of tread too.
Anyway I complained bitterly to my garage and asked them if they would pass on a formal complaint. They said Pirelli would probably not respond. So far they haven't. I now refuse to ever… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/08/2008 by ddblack92 (1 review written)

The Pirelli P6000 must be the worst tyre for wet weather grip I have driven on in over 30 years. Wet weather grip is diabolical, even at low speeds, such as when negotiating roundabouts and T junctions. Damp surfaces have the car slithering around dangerously, and wheelspinning when pulling away even cautiously… Read Full Review

Pgbenson's Response to ddblack92's Review

Written on: 15/12/2008

Totally agree with ddblack92. I only realised after I replaced them with a different brand. I have a C220 Merc which is hardly the most powerfull car in the world. Even in the slightest rain the wheels will spin when driving off any faster than a crawl. I am glad to say that I never had to test their stopping power but I can only imagine that the ability to stick to the road is similar.
