Bought a Volvo V50 2.4 D5 which had 4 new Pirelli P6000 (unfortunately). Size 205/50 17. Wet grip is very poor and the tyres cannot handle the power. Even my old car with a much less powerfull engine had grip problems in the wet. Unfortunately even that one had P6000. So in the wet I would say they are very poor under acceleration, breaking and in corners. In the dry they are half decent. Reasonably quite, decent comfort and feel. Tyre wear seams good. Will definitely go back to Michelin… Read Full Review

I'm a low mileage user, so although I've had the tyres for 4 years there is still 4mm of tread left. They've travelled 12000 miles from new. But at my MoT inspection today the tester pointed out cracking running all the way around the sidewalls of both P6000 tyres. Not a fail, but advised to keep a close eye on it. I've got cheaper Firestones on the rear wheels, and they're doing fine… Read Full Review

Bought these in a hurry after a puncture destroyed another tyre. I drive a Honda FRV diesel people carrier. The car had Uniroyals on the front and P6000 were fitted on the rear. Dry grip is about average but wet grip is shockingly poor as I found out when the rear end broke away going round a roundabout at moderate speed. Basically, these tyres slip and slide on anything even mildly moist and are just short of lethal when road conditions are at all greasy. Adding insult to injury, they also… Read Full Review

I have these p6000 pirelli's fitted to my car and they are fine in the dry; reasonably grippy, hard wearing, maybe a bit too much tyre roar but overall they are OK. However, the fun starts in anything other than bone dry conditions! These tyres have no grip at all on damp/greasy/wet/frosty or cold road surfaces, I would say they are borderline dangerous in the wet. I drive an average family car (diesel saloon), not a sports car, and it is still very easy to break traction and wheelspin… Read Full Review

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

Even at 40 mph on the M25 in heavy rain the car was aquaplaning so bad I had to slow to 20mph. Now fitted Goodyear F1 and have never had a problem. Will never buy a pirelli again.they are no better than a budget tyre… Read Full Review

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

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

anyone who owns a mercedes should know these are the best tyres for performance, handling and price. my car is twenty two year old, rear wheel drive, automatic and i have owned her for nine years so ive tried out other tyres and found there is no comparison. its not just my car, my father-in-law owns a top of the range S class and guess what tyres he uses????????… Read Full Review

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

These tyres last me at least 20k which I think is plenty for this type of driving style… Read Full Review
