new rubber for 355

Discussion in '348/355' started by rossomonza355, Nov 9, 2003.

  1. any comments or experience with Pirelli P Zero tires on a 355? My 98 Berlinetta has 5,800K with the original Bridgestone rubber. I have used the Pirellis on Porsches before, but am new to Ferrari.
    Thanks for helping the newbie out.

    I just put a set of P-Zero's on my 95 355. They were great although I did not track the car...

    I am using S03s on my F355; 225/40ZR18 front and 275/40ZR18 rear. Basically, I get 5,000 street miles and 15 track days on a set. These tires last 3 times as long as the brake pads.......at the track...

    I put Pzeros on after the Bridgestones wore out, (99 355F1 15,000mi)
    In my opinion the Pzeros are not quite as grippy as the Bridgestones on the track, but are more consistent, not as prone to going away after a few laps. All in all, they seem to be a good all around tire. Now the tires outlast the brakes, which was not the case with Bridgestones.

    If you put anything else other than the P-Zero Corsa, you are missing out. A Fantastic race/street tire. The CORSA was designed specifically for the Stradale. That should say it all, but I'll say more.
    These tires are simply the best tires I've every had on a track/street car. Amazing grip on the track, and comfortable enouph to drive everyday. Forget all others. The CORSA is it.

    The PZeros will last longer, but don't stick as well. For street use, it makes no difference. If you're going to track the car, then the S03s are probably better. I've had both, and frankly prefer the Pzeros.

    There are two different Pzeros. The Pzero CORSA is the new tire.
