Pirelli Winter Sottozero

The Winter Sottozero tire is Pirelli's "dual-season" Performance Winter tire that was developed to be effective from mid-autumn until early spring by generating its maximum performance on minimum grip surfaces in cold temperatures compared to summer tires. Currently available in selected low profile sizes, the Winter Sottozero tire is for the drivers of high performance sport cars, coupes & sedans who don't let their enthusiasm for driving cool off in winter.


The Winter Sottozero tread compound utilizes cap & base technology that combines two different compounds. The upper strata (cap) that comes into contact with the road surface uses Pirelli's latest generation silanes to bind the silica & polymer to provide greater stability during hard driving in both wet & dry conditions, & the sub-strata in contact with the casing (base) uses nano-composites (aluminum silicates) dispersed throughout the polymer to provide stiffness to enhance stability & driving precision. The tread compound is molded into an asymmetric tread pattern divided into distinct inner & outer elements to blend traction on snow-covered surfaces with drivability on dry & wet roads. On the inside, they utilize Pirelli's ultra-high performance tire structures to offer levels of performance not normally associated with winter tires.

Pirelli Winter Sottozero Performance Winter tires meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements & are branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol. The Winter Sottozero radials feature blackwall styling & are available in H- & V-speed rated, selected 55-, 40-, 35- & 30-series sizes for 16", 17" & 19" wheel diameters.

Install Pirelli Winter Sottozero tires in sets of four only.

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