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 control.

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.
