Pirelli PZero Corsa System
P Zero Corsa System Track &
Competition D.O.T. tires have been developed for the drivers of
high-powered, super sports cars primarily for extreme road use, as
well as track use at drivers' schools and lapping days. Original
Equipment for the road versions of Ferrari 360 Challenge,
Lamborghini Gallardo and Porsche GT2 & GT3 cars, the P Zero Corsa
System was designed to maximize a car's performance to satisfy even
the most demanding driver in terms of dry handling and braking
without abandoning wet performance and noise comfort. The P Zero
Corsa System incorporates Pirelli's racing experience to enhance
driving satisfaction at the limits. P Zero Corsa System tires are
not intended to be driven on extremely wet roads with standing water
where there is the risk of hydroplaning, in near-freezing
temperatures, through snow or on ice.
The P Zero Corsa System features two Pirelli competition-type tread
designs that include P Zero Corsa Direzionale tires for the front
and P Zero Corsa Asimmetrico tires for the rear. The directional
front tires penetrate the water surface, clearing a path for the
rear tires, that continue water dispersal for increased driving
The P Zero Corsa Direzionale tires mold Pirelli's innovative racing
tread compound into a semi-slick, V-shaped directional tread design.
The tires' internal structure includes ultra-light, flexible belts
reinforced by spirally wound nylon and a very stiff sidewall
construction resulting in a wide footprint area to enhance dry grip
while directional grooves increase hydroplaning resistance.
The P Zero Corsa Asimmetrico's tread design features a semi-slick,
low void ratio and a large external shoulder structure with a
minimum number of grooves to eliminate the blocky structure of a
conventional pattern. The P Zero Corsa System Asimmetrico's
asymmetric and directional tread design requires separate left and
right side tires for the vehicle as branded on each tire's sidewall.
The tires' internal structure includes highly flexible steel belts
reinforced by spirally wound nylon to enhance cornering stability
and provide high-speed capability while reducing weight.
NOTE: While it is recommended that P Zero Corsa Direzionale tires
only be used on the front axle positions of mid- and rear-engine
cars, P Zero Corsa System Asimmetrico tires can also be used on all
of a vehicle's wheel positions, as well as can be combined in axle
pairs with P Zero Corsa (non-System) tires on the other axle.
The P Zero Corsa System tires are molded with 6/32" to 10/32" of
tread depth in their grooves and are left unshaved for use on damp
tracks or shaved to approximately 4/32" of tread depth to begin
competitive road racing/track use in dry conditions.
Caution: P Zero Corsa System tires are not recommended for
high-speed driving on extremely wet roads/tracks with standing water
where there is the risk of hydroplaning. This is especially true of
shaved or worn tires. Drivers should drive cautiously at reduced
speeds in these conditions.
