Homologated tyres are those that have been approved directly via a manufacturer. These tyres are ones that have met the standards and regulatory requirements of the manufacturer.
The energy lost when a tyre is in motion is known as 'rolling resistance'. This has a direct impact on fuel consumption.
A tyre's rolling resistance score ranges from A to G. Over the life of the tyre, fitting an A rated tyre could save you up to 6 litres of fuel when compared to a G rated tyre.
A tyre's wet grip capacity is expressed in Grades from A to G.
The difference in braking distances between each grade is roughly 3m - an average car length. This makes average stopping distance between an A and G rated tyre 18m. That's 4 car lengths.
The exterior noise grade of a tyre is expressed in decibels - accompanied by one, two or three sound waves, with one wave being the best noise level performance.
To achieve the best grade, a tyre’s noise level must be at least 3dB under the legal limit set by the EU.
The P Zero Corsa Asimmetrico System combines a Directional tyre (front axle fitment) with an Asymmetric tyre (rear axle fitment).
The Asymmetric tyre features longitudinal grooves that reduce the risk of aquaplaning, whilst the wide outer shoulder with its narrow grooves enhances road holding when cornering.
Developed from Pirelli's motorsport activities, P Zero Corsa Asimmetrico is made with a 'racing-type' compound. It combines exceptional steering precision, excellent braking and good performance in the wet.
P Zero Corsa Asimmetrico features a wide and stable contact area with improved rigidity and can with stand extreme levels of handling in all situations.
