PirelliP1 Cint is more of a comfort and mileage tyre, the treadwear is quite high and even thou is pricey but if you havent use pirelli before you can feel the difference in noise and ride comfort. There are differences in tyre depending on the tyre pattern P1, P7 is more to a comfort tyre its has lots of sipes and curvature, less blocky pattern for example high performance tyre is quite blocky so it will be quite noisy and also the ride comfort depends on the Ratio of the tyre the bigger the rim size the lesser the comfort is. Every tyre has its own characteristic depending on your driving style, Driving condition and the type of car you're driving. My recommendation try it i myself had tested numerous tyre all of them is good but which makes it better it depends on your judgement.

have a nice day ahead guys.

just based on forumer view...straight can tell this tyre is not suitable and kenot go up to 200 km/h?

Every tyre will tell whether what is the limit of the tyre whether this tyre is H or V rating...meaning what is the top speed this tyre can hit!
*
who said this tyre cannot go up to 200km/h?
what i have in mind is that, this tyre is considered a "softer" tyre, such as Michelin XM2...
not suitable for driver like me which drive aggressively... sweat.gif
u think the other way bro...

i am using this tyre now...
dry grip is excellent...compare to champiro bax 2...
road noise very subjective...if on nice tar road, damn quite...if on bad road, it is noiser than bax 2...

high speed around 110-130 using this tyre cornering before entering ipoh tunnel is damn nice...make the stereng too sensitive...
then high speed 160-180 10-20degree turn is very nice too...

no idea about wet grip yet...lately no rain...

I got quoted P1s for RFT. The price is low due to made in China. I wonder if that's bad being made in China.

RFT stands for what...

Hi Guys,

I owned a Jetta and it comes with Pirelli P7 (Made in Brazil) after 5 years. The style of my driving is city between speed to 0-100KM, i hate following a slow car in front. Highway usually top speed at 160KM. I am very happy with the tyre for the reasons as below.
Tyre spec (205/55/16)
- Good Grip (Both Wet and Dry) I never felt the car perform different on heavy rain or hot day.
- Noise (I dunno how to judge but the engine and the motobike is more nosier while in the car)
- Handling (I am very confident neg. corner at the preferred speed)

The car clocked in 30K mileage (low mileage) and the tyre is 5 years old and is time to replace.
*
whre u get ur hands on P7?
when i change to P1 few years back, there is only P1 available...
i was asking for P7 but no stock...
anyway, after 2 years using P1, the wet grip not really good when heavy rain(hardly road in front that kind of heavy rain)
can feel car sway left and right abit when speed is around 90/100km/h...

I am staying in Penang. Found 2 shops are selling P7 for 205/55/16, One recommended me P7 another one PS3. Another shop told me P7 do not have for 16" tyre in Malaysia.

I have another vehicle equipped with the Conti. CC5. The P1 and CC5 are entry level tyre as I learned lately. I too have the same problem as you experience on P1 for my CC5. Very shaky on high speed, neg. corner is nightmare.

You may check on https://www.facebook.com/PirelliTiresMalaysia/ which i stubmle upon through Google. I just message them to verify if P7 do have for 16" tyre in Malayisa.

i got my P1 from hock kee at bukit jambul there...
when i changed to P1, i do survey few shops and none got P7...

which shop u went?
the CC5 put on which of ur car?

P1 on my preve quite stable when cornerning even in hill roads from teluk kumbar to teluk bahang...and from tanjong bungah to teluk bahang...
but this is on dry roads...not wet roads...

I just check out on MICHELIN site @ http://www.michelin.com.my/Products-Servic...ot%20Sport%203#.

There were so many good reviews. Trying to convince myself for PS3. LoL..

Comment from other site who answered my query:
"Actually you already answered your own question. CC5 are entry level, MC5 and P7 mid level and PS3 are UHP tyres and all cost almost the same and since your priorities are more into handling and grip, PS3 is your answer.....lol"
*
i dont to keep my butt bumpy all the way as my car has quite stiff suspension...
PS3 is harder compound compare to PS3 and CC5....
and i'm not using it for racing...just normal driving...and straight road will speed abit...
