Pirelli Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT

The Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT (Series 2) is Pirelli's V-speed rated Performance Winter / Snow run-flat tire developed for the drivers of premium, high performance vehicles facing challenging wintertime road conditions as they drive their cars year-round. Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT tires feature Pirelli Self-Supporting Run Flat Technology that enhances safety and convenience by providing temporary extended mobility in the event a puncture allows complete loss of air pressure. Pirelli Self-Supporting Run Flat Technology allows tires to literally "run flat" for up to 50 miles at 50 mph (80 km at 80 km/h) unless otherwise specified by the vehicle manufacturer for Original Equipment tires.

The Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT was developed with the philosophy that winter / snow tires must perform in a variety of unpredictable weather conditions and aren't just for use in the snowbelt states. Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT tires are designed not just as winter / snow tires, but as seasonal tires suitable for the weather and road conditions typically experienced in parts of the U.S. between November and April by providing traction and handling in dry, wet, cold and wintry conditions.

Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT tires use a tread compound featuring new polymers and mixing processes that allow them to be ecologically friendlier because they are free of aromatic oils. Pirelli's Temperature Dynamic Compound technology optimizes the compound for wet and icy surfaces to provide improved traction in winter's near freezing and lower temperatures. The tread blocks feature Pirelli's Interactive Brickwork Siping where the sipes create a brickwork pattern that increases both lateral and longitudinal stability while providing more biting edges to increase snow traction. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped polyamide that enhances thermal stability and makes the tires less sensitive to changes in road and air temperatures.

Pirelliís extended mobility solution is made possible by their MIRS computer-controlled robotized manufacturing system, a production process that assures consistency in the application of the additional sidewall reinforcements that provide the self-supporting run-flat capability.

Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT tires meet the industry's severe snow service requirements and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol.

Install Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT tires in sets of four only.

Due to the traction capabilities of the Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT tires, Pirelli recommends using Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II RFT tires only in sets of four to provide the best handling characteristics and tire performance.
