Yokohama AVS ES 100

OR

Pirelli P Zero Nero http://www.ca.pirelli.com/en_CA/tyres/catalog/tyre_product.jhtml?selected=desc&catid=CAE_UHP&productid=9163

Which one is the better tire? They are both under the ultra high performance category. Just want to know what mileage ratings are like based on personal experiences. Feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Actually, I've found a place selling them for the same price. $219 each.
I'm not too concerned with prices, I just want a good tire.

Make sure you're getting just regular PZero's and not PZero M+S, they're totally different tires. M+S is their all season version.

I'd go with the Yokohama's. The pirelli's tread pattern doesn't look like it would get rid of water properly. Plus I hate Pirelli, they make shit tires. They are not sticky enough for the road.

I'm running Yokahama tires both on my M3 and 540i. I love them.

If you're not concerned with prices...why not get a better set of tires?

Pirreli's are great bike tires...not to fond of them on cars though...not sticky enough, especially if you run your car hard, it may slip on tight curves

A lot of misinformation here. The Nero and the Nero M&S share the EXACT same tread pattern, the M&S version just has a higher silica content, for low temperature capability. It isn't really a hindrance unless you're tracking the car for a long time, the M&S version is much better, especially for our climate.

The ES100's will have better steering response, and that's about the only area they are better in. The Nero M&S is an amazing all-arounder, and the 400 treadwear rating is a bonus. Read the Tirerack test reports (NOT the consumer reviews, as worthless as forum dribble), and you'll see what I'm talking about.

If price is not a concern then Michelin Pilots are the better way to go.

S-03's, PS2's, and T1-R's are all better tires than the outdated original Pilots, IMO.

Sorry the new Michellin Pilot Exalto tires. There are better tires, however you will pay a lot more.

Indeed they are.


He may also want to try a set of BF KD's/KDW's, or Falken Azenis/Ziex's...incredible bang for the buck tires(huge grip without the price). SP9000's were an excellent tire aswell.

I'm running 19" Pirelli P-Zero Nero tires and i LOVE them. I have never had a smoother tire, and it is sooooooooooo quiet while driving. It feels like my car is brand new over the bumps compared to my old 18" Toyo's. *th-up*
