Pirelli named favourite performance tyre by eBay users

4th November 2011

Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli has been named eBay users' favourite performance tyre.

The online auction firm's motors division conducted its 2011 People's Picks survey, which asked users to vote in a number of categories including American muscle cars, motorsports, super cars, trucks, motorcycles and cars in culture.

Pirelli tyres were considered the best performance tyre, while NASCAR was named the greatest racing series and Jeep was voted the best 4 x 4 brand.

"This year's massive voter turnout reflects the incredible passion of the auto community, something we fuel every day on eBay Motors, where people are buying auto parts literally every second," said Famous Rhodes, eBay Motors' senior director.

"The automotive community has strong opinions not just on their favourite cars and trucks, but also on the brands that help them modify and customise those vehicles. People's Picks ultimately shows that brands matter when it comes to enthusiasts."

A total of 3.4 million votes were cast in this year's survey, ten times more than in 2010.
