Acknowledging tyre growth in all-season tyres in the UK, Pirelli continues to recommend the use of winter tyres for its target performance car market, especially in extreme conditions. The manufacturer states that this position is reflected in its winter range, which includes both specialist and all-rounder products for the relevant segments.
By the time the cold months are upon us again, Pirelli will have introduced its new Cinturato Winter range. This aftermarket successor to the Snowcontrol Serie 3 is aimed at compact and mid-sized vehicles and, according to the tyre maker, is the beneficiary of a transfer that sees the technological innovations typically found in performance car tyres, especially those related to safety, introduced into standard tyres for medium-sized cars. The result? Upon unveiling the Cinturato Winter in June, Pirelli claimed to have produced a tyre that offers the “driving pleasure and comfort more normally associated with a summer tyre” while simultaneously ensuring “maximum safety under all conditions.”
