Pirelli Tires is expanding its all season tire range with 22 new sizes – between 16 and 19 inches in the Cinturato All Season Plus and Scorpion Verde All Season SF Families.
These are available for the aftermarket with Seal Inside technology as well: a system from Pirelli that allows motorists to keep driving even with a puncture. With these new sizes, Pirelli will be able to cover around 90% of the potential All Season market in Europe.
Cinturato All Season Plus
The Cinturato All Season Plus, for cars with 15 to 20 inch wheels, is designed for people who primarily drive in cities without having to worry about weather or regulations that oblige winter tires. This evolution of the original Cinturato All Season range benefits from a special directional tread pattern design that optimises water expulsion through two wide longitudinal and lateral channels, reducing aquaplaning. The innovative design also means reduced noise, both on the inside and the outside, enhancing driving pleasure. Another distinctive trait of the new Cinturato All Season Plus is its 3D blades. The pattern is designed to optimise the movement of the tread blocks to guarantee better performance under braking and through corners. This also makes the wear profile of the tire more even, while extending tire life. In snowy weather, the blocks open out and capture snow, delivering excellent roadholding. That’s why the All Season Plus is marked with the M+S symbol as well as the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol: the hallmark of total safety in winter conditions.
Scorpion Verde All Season SF
Pirelli offers the Scorpion Verde All Season SF for drivers of SUVs or crossovers: a tire well-suited to both summer and winter that’s also marked with the M+S as well as the three-peak mountain snowflake symbols, guaranteeing safety in cold weather. The specific design of the tread pattern and blocks delivers excellent handling both in snowy and wet conditions, with perfect traction and lateral stability, along with low road noise. Completing the attributes of this tire is a long life and low rolling resistance, helping to save money on fuel.
Carrier All Season
The All Season range is rounded off by the Carrier All Season for vans and light commercial vehicles. This tire is very easy to drive, with a long life, low rolling resistance and excellent performance in all conditions. Furthermore, the Carrier All Season is a class leader in wet conditions and equipped with the M+S and three-peak mountain snowflake symbols to guarantee performance in moderate winter conditions.
Seal Inside Technology: No need to worry about punctures
The Cinturato All Season Plus and Scorpion Verde All Season are also available with ground-breaking Seal Inside technology, which allows drivers to keep going with no loss of tire pressure, in case of punctures up to four millimetres. It works thanks to a special mousse on the inside of the tire, which instantly wraps around any foreign object puncturing the tire and so prevents a loss of air pressure. Once the object is removed, the mousse expands to further plug the gap. This mousse is in turn covered in a special film that also protects it before the tire is fitted to the wheel. The Seal Inside option extends the mobility of the car with no worries, guaranteeing performance in all conditions and protecting against punctures.
Run Flat Technology
Scorpion Verde All Season tires are also available with Pirelli’s Self-Supporting Run Flat option, guaranteeing safety without compromising driving pleasure. These tires are specifically designed to keep the car stable in the event of a puncture, allowing motorists to drive another 80 kilometres safely at a maximum speed of 80kph. It works thanks to reinforcements built in to the tire’s sidewall, which are capable of supporting the weight of the car as well as all the forces acting on it: even with no internal tire pressure.
