The P Zero Corsa is Pirelli's DOT-legal
Competition tire primarily developed for use on high performance
cars at drivers' schools & lapping days conducted on race tracks.
The P Zero Corsa incorporates Pirelli's racing experience to enhance
driving satisfaction at the limits of performance.
On the outside, The P Zero Corsa uses a
high hysteresis tread compound that transfers the vehicle's
horsepower to a dry track by developing inspiring grip at high tread
temperatures. This tread compound is molded into a unique asymmetric
& directional tread pattern that features a sturdy outer shoulder
to provide lateral stability & cornering grip, while grooves in
the tire's central & inner tread areas enhance wet track handling
& braking. The P Zero Corsa's asymmetric & directional tread
design requires separate "left" & "right" side tires for the
vehicle as branded on each tire's sidewall. On the inside, the P
Zero Corsa features highly flexible steel belts reinforced by
spirally wound nylon to enhance steering precision & provide
high-speed capability while reducing weight.
The P Zero Corsa is molded with 6/32"
of tread depth in its grooves & is available unshaved for use on
damp tracks or shaved to between 3/32" to 4/32" of tread depth for
use on dry tracks.
The P Zero Corsa is not recommended for driving on extremely wet
roads 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.
Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires feature
black letter styling & are available in selected 50-, 45-, 40-,
35- & 30-series; Y-speed rated sizes for 17" & 18" wheel
Unlike other Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, the 215/45R17 87Y size
features a unique tread compound molded into an 8/32” deep
directional tread design. It is assigned a UTQG rating of 140 AA A.
