A “Green Performance” winter tyre for city and compact cars developed to perform in all road conditions.
Made from eco-compatible materials that minimise environmental impact, both at the production stage and throughout the life of the tyre.
Already complies with the 2012 EU Directive on the reduction of noise, resulting in improved driving comfort.
The I.B.S. (Interactive Brickwork Siping) technology used for the sipe pattern improves performance on wet and dry surfaces. It gives a feeling of safety in extreme conditions and reduces braking distance.
The two wide lateral channels on the directional tread offer greater safety in the wet whilst the innovative siped longitudinal channels ensure traction for precise steering and improved “grip” on snow.
The winter tyre developed to meet all safety requirements for "city to compact cars" on roads in urban, country and mountainous conditions: providing high levels of safety in moderate to extreme winter conditions.
This is another significant advance in Pirelli’s move towards a more effective respect for the environment, without Highly Aromatic Oils in the compounds and with advanced low rolling resistance technology to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
|1 - Directional tread pattern design with wide longitudinal grooves||Improved water and slush expulsion||Reduced risk of aquaplaning|
|2 - Optimised pitch sequence||Reduction of high frequency noise||Excellent comfort and driving pleasure|
|3 - Thin sipe technology: reduced distance between tread's sipes||Wider contact area and compact tread pattern||Excellent handling and braking in all road conditions|
|4 - Siped longitudinal grooves||More effective "snow on snow" friction effect||Increased traction on snowy surfaces|
|Magazine||Issue||Pattern & size||Vehicle||Result|
|10/10||WINTER SNOWCONTROL™ SERIE II 195/65R15 T/H||VW Golf||GOOD|
|First class performance with short braking distance and safe cornering on snow, runs comfortable, low rolling resistance.|
|09/10||WINTER SNOWCONTROL™ SERIE II 195/65R15 T||Ford Focus||VERY RECOMMENDABLE|
|Good winter performances with reduced rolling resistance.|
Selecting a vehicle the interactive application will show you the Pirelli tyre most suited to your vehicle according to its technical features and homologation and a list of sizes that can replace those originally fitted.
These results are provided AS AN INDICATION and, BEFORE purchasing the tyres, BE SURE TO CONSULT a Pirelli dealer in order to check the technical and legal constraints that may be an obstacle to the replacement proposed.
