The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
The Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3 is a winter tyre designed for mid-range and premium passenger cars. Thanks to its directional tread pattern, the model quickly disperses water, minimising the risk of aquaplaning and thus maintaining grip and safety, whatever the weather.
The compound used to make the tyre maintains excellent flexibility across a wide range of temperatures, increasing the contact surface between the tyre and the road, resulting in better driving stability. Optimal traction on snow is provided by the tyre tread with a wide central rib, fitted with blocks in the shape of double arrows. The 3D blades are responsible for good manoeuvrability on dry roads and excellent grip on snow. On wet roads, two longitudinal grooves quickly disperse water and improve driving precision. The rounded side of the tyre helps effectively disperse water and maintain stability when going round corners and during dynamic manoeuvres. Thanks to its innovative compound and optimised tread pattern, the model has a longer lifetime and is more resistant to mechanical damage. The designers of the Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3 have also achieved an even distribution of pressure on the tyre. This means that the tread wears evenly and the tyre offers its full performance specifications for its entire lifetime. The model is a very good solution for drivers who value both optimal performance and good driveability on any surface, as well as safety and comfort in difficult conditions.

I was pondering the purchase of the winter tyres for a long time and i'm quite happy that i chose Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3. I was a little afraid to fit a budget tyres to the heavy car with rear-wheel drive so instead i went for these. It is true that the winter was not too severe, but it snowed a few time and i didn't get buried, even once especially when i was driving through some forrest roads. As you may know you won't skid while driving the rear drive unless you want to. For they are fine for a moderate driver. I had to disable the ESP because I wasn't able to do a 180 turn when parking next to my house :) After driving one season they still look like new. I see that with my driving style they will serve a good several years. After all this i will surely choose Pirelli tyre for the dummer as well. I wrote a lot, but I recommend :)
Mounted Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3 in the size of 255/45/19 in 2014. In the beginning of winter in March 2015 I've had almost 10,000 miles covered and I am happy with these tyres. When mounting and balancing maximum weight that was used was 15 grams, I do not feel vibration or anything like that. With Dynamic acceleration (350 hp) I didn't experience any skidding on either dry or wet. It is difficult to assess the benefits of winter tires on snow and ice that winter 2014/2015 was exceptionally mild for drivers and therefore couldn't have had any real issues. The car handles very well, but it can also be the due to A8 D4 and air suspension, though, even in fast tight turns and fast is not necessary to expect to correct the track. Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3 are so good that you couldn't see the ABS being active.
I'm very impressed with the Pirelli Sottozero 3, after using Nokian and Verdestein tyres during winters and I was a bit worried to go to PIRELLI but they were available at great price and had good reviews. I did not know how they would be on a 245 than my previous 18 vehicles were much narrower 16-inch wheels. Took on a very steep slope after a heavy snow shower one evening. the tyre chewed through and would slip at very high acceleration. No other 2WD vehicle made up the hill. Very quiet on the highway. Excellent in the dry, it is better in the wet, but certainly not real issues. I highly recommend it if you can get them at good price. You can not comment wear yet, but certainly does not seem excessive.
Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3 tyres were bought recently, but I can clearly say that they are excellent! I have bmw e60 with a power of 218hp, tested those with the "H" symbol, which are limited to 210km / h, but to test these and their strength and noisei had to go beyond 240km / h. Noise - quiet tires, great ride. Adhesion - I have not had a situation where I can check 100% of the grip, but sharp turns and dynamic driving are no problem for these rubbers. The best winter I have had so far. As for the durability i have too little to say about them... yet. I will know more after some more mileage. Price for quality as for me at 6! And bmw looks great in these tyres. Regards!
At first glance, you can see that the Pirelli SottoZero Serie 3 tyres are of high quality which was also recognized by a mechanic who fitted them. If someone wants to experience how different the grip can be on your own skin, I would recommend exactly that. Dry and wet road are indistinguishable, slush is practically imperceptible. Driving on snow is slightly worse but only a bit. The worst is the clay mud - tires advise to deal with it, but the difference compared to summer tires is minimal. The main disadvantage is the tyre noise level. I must admit I underestimated what it can be in case of these tyres. It does sound as though the wind was whisltling at a high volume.
