Latest Tire Test Results

2022 Tire Reviews Winter Tire Test - 4th of 9 tires

  • Positive - Enjoyable dynamic tire to drive in all conditions, short dry braking, good snow handling, lowest internal noise.
  • Negative - Low aquaplaning resistance, weaker snow braking, high rolling resistance.
  • Overall - The new Pirelli Cinturato Winter 2 was the most fun tire to drive in all conditions. It was the winter tire of the group that seemed to focus more on lateral grip than longitudinal grip, and while it wasn't the best in snow braking or the aquaplaning tests, it was great in snow handling, wet handling and dry handling and a very likable tire. A deserved fourth overall and a tire I recommend.

Given 86% while driving a SEAT Leon (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
I bought this tire last year after suggestions from my tire dealer. I was looking for a good tire for cold and rainy winters with some occasional trip to the mountains. These tires were highly satisfactory in terms of dry and wet performance, plus they felt great in terms of subjective road feedback and handling. Car seems attached to the ground in all situations. Downsides are higher noise and fuel consumption, but I say this with respect to my summer tires, which may not be a fair comparison. I only tried them on snow once and they were fine.

Brand new, to replace my old Pirelli Sottozero 3, come at the end of their Life. Dry: These Cinturato Winter 2 are proposed as touring tires, and so they do: compared to the more sporty precursors, the road feedback appears rougher and less direct. Likewise, handling in the dry is poorer, less precise, however decent for a touring tire. Breaking in the dry appears on the other hand fairly good, with more than reasonable stopping distances. Wet: drivability in the wet is not too bad. Wet handling is decent, breaking is good as well as aquaplaning resistance, both in the straight line and in the corner. Snow: Compared to the Sottozero 3, the performance of these Cinturato Winter 2 on snow is improved: either traction, handling and braking are significantly ameliorated, providing in challenging conditions of snow, snow/mud or snow/rain a greater sense of safety. Ice: Although not nordic or studded tires, these Cinturato Winter 2 do fairly good with the ice, letting you get off on it, as long as you drive with due prudence. Internal noise: These tires make themselves felt, as expected, especially during high-speed driving. Fuel consumption and wear: in the middle for a quality winter tire. Price: high-priced but less expensive compared to many competing models of other premium brands.
