As car enthusiasts, we take tyres very seriously. Having the correct tyre for the road conditions can make the difference between life and death. Luckily for us based in the UK, we have access to companies such as . The Oxfordshire based company makes the process of ordering new tyres a whole lot easier.
More Than Just a Tyre Shop
MyTyres.co.uk website has a wealth of information that helps educate you on the correct tyres for your car and have gone to the extreme of defining over that some people may not know already.
Looking at their available stock they have some great products on offer. We have specifically tested the Pirelli Cinturato All Season tyre which I really can’t recommend enough. Take a look at the details of the tyre below.
Pirelli Cinturato All Season Tyre Overview
Pirelli’s All Season tyre is designed to perform very well in both summer and mild winter environments; conditions quite similar to the UK seasons. I have first hand experience of the features on the tyre and I will tell you about them below. For me, one of the greatest features is the Seal Inside technology, which means that tyre can survive punctures without the loss of air pressure.
Pirelli Cinturato Design
The Cinturato All Season has had huge amounts of research and development to make a great all-round tyre. A couple of its key features include:
Compound – A refined compound that has been specifically developed to have optimal grip in a temperature range from around 2°c up to 22°c. This means the tyre works better at low temperatures than a standard summer tyre would.
3D Sipes – The All Season has 3D Sipe technology. This is basically cuts in the tyre that allows the rubber to flex around more and as a result help to provide grip in wet and snowy conditions.
Directional Thread Pattern – The Cinturato All Season uses a directional-based thread pattern that means the tyre has to be fitted in the correct direction. This tread has been optimised for maximum water expulsion from the underneath of the tyre, which increases the grip on wet surfaces and lowers the risk of aquaplaning.
Dry Road Performance
I tested the tyre on warm dry roads in a city car and I was very happy with the level of grip and comfort of the tyre; in fact, I was unable to fault the tyre. I don’t even think that I would have been able to tell the difference between the Pirelli Cinturato All Season tyre and the Pirelli summer tyre, it was that good.
I was also able to push the tyres past their normal road going limits on a track test. During the test we cornered the cars on both wet and dry surfaces to feel how the grip differed. Once again, I was impressed with the tyre. The level of grip in the wet gave me huge amounts of confidence and, for a tyre that works so well in the dry, I was shocked with the level of performance it had in the wet. It was unreal. Take a look at the video below.
After the previous two performance tests with the tyre, I wasn’t sure how well it would perform on the snow. But when it came to testing it, I was blown away. I was able to drive the car a lot harder and more recklessly than I ever would drive in the snow and the Pirelli Cinturato All Season tyre still had lots of grip and was able to provide me with great control over the car.
There is no doubt that the Pirelli Cinturato All Season tyre will be a hit in the UK market. The tyre is the only piece of the car that touches the road, and after testing this one out I don’t see why you would choose any other type of all year round tyre. The added feature of having Seal Inside technology takes away some of the hassle from motorists and can really make your car instantly more reliable.
