Guest's review of Pirelli P6000

★★☆☆☆

“Average in dry, lethal in wet”

Written on: 03/08/2012

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 went out shape causing a loud whine at speed between 40-50mph. Took me a while to find this problem which is evidently common with these tyres.

I have had to bite the bullet and replace them with about 4mm of tread remaining.

I have used (and preferred) P6000's in the past, and I always thought they were very good, although they wore down quicker than, say, Michelins.
Legal tyre tread is 1.6mm across 75% of the tyre, so yes you have changed early, but at about 3mm tyres lose a heck of a lot of water displacement ability, especially on wider tyres.
