225/50YR16 PIRELLI P-ZERO™
Manufacturer Name: Pirelli
A 225/50 R16 radial tire has a width of 225mm, and its sidewall height is 50% of that width, suitable for 16-inch diameter wheels. 225/50YR16 PIRELLI P-ZERO™ – First developed in 1986, the Pirelli P-Zero series represents a culmination of Pirelli’s technological advancements and research over the years. The P ZERO™ features an asymmetrical tread pattern, which has been engineered to deliver consistent performance on both wet and dry surfaces. This design ensures traction and stability during various driving conditions.
The 225/50YR16 Pirelli P-Zero tire incorporates contemporary compounds, a result of research and development conducted at racetracks. Its complex carcass structure is bolstered with Kevlar reinforcements, indicating the tire’s focus on durability and strength. This particular model is designed primarily to function as a front tire. In optimal setups, it’s paired with the asymmetric 255/50YR16 P-Zero Assimetrico for the rear. These two tread patterns have been developed to fulfil specific roles and performance criteria.
Historically, these tires have been chosen for vehicles like the Ferrari Testarossa, Ferrari 288 GTO, and Ferrari 512TR & 512M, with the 255/50YR16 P-Zero Assimetrico typically positioned on the rear. While the 225/50YR16 size might fit vehicles such as the Porsche 928 and Porsche 944, for a balanced front and rear tire setup, the 225/50 R16 Pirelli P7 would be a more appropriate choice. Additionally, for certain Porsche models, the 205/55YR16 P7 & 245/45YR16 P7 are also viable pairing options.
