If snow and heavy rainfall is a common occurrence during the winter months where you live, and you don’t like switching tires every time the season changes, you can’t go wrong with the Pirelli P4 Four Season Plus. An all season tire designed to keep the drivers of coupes, sedans and minivans happy and safe all year-round.

Building a tire that can handle a variety of weather and driving conditions is a tricky challenge, but the clever folks over at Pirelli are clearly up to the task.

The Four Season Plus does it all. It delivers a nice balance of responsive handling,ride comfort, winter traction, braking in bad weather and longevity.

So what’s its secret? How does the Four Season Plus maintain such a high level of performance throughout the year?

To reduce rolling resistance and enhance bad weather traction, the Pirelli Four Season Plus employs a silica rich tread compound that’s molded into a symmetric tread pattern and features a continuous center rib for more secure handling and stability. Regardless of the weather conditions, with the Four Season Plus on your car you can count on cornering and steering to remain balanced and predictable.

How does it manage winter driving conditions?

In the winter when the rain is pouring down, you want a tire on your car that instills confidence. So how does the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus perform when the going gets wet?

In an effort to balance dry handling with consistent traction on wet and wintry road conditions, the tire’s independent tread and shoulder blocks use computer-designed siping to ensure you remain stuck to the road at all times.


To fight off hydroplaning and clear water away from the tire and the road surface, the Four Season Plus utilizes two circumferential grooves along with numerous variable-angle lateral grooves for superior traction and braking performance on wet pavement.

Now snow performance is always a weak point in an all season tire, but the Four Season Plus will catch you by surprise with its traction and handling in the white stuff. If you suddenly get caught out in a blizzard, this is an all season tire you can actually rely on to get you home safely. They won’t have you ripping through deep snow like a dedicated winter tire, but compared to many other touring all season tires, winter performance is outstanding. Certainly up there with the best in its class.

However, you should take note that these tires are not designed to handle extremely low temperatures, deep snow or black ice due to their narrow sipes.

Enjoy a smooth and comfortable ride

Pirelli recognized the fact that you not only want a tire that’s reliable and performs well, but you want it to be comfortable too.In an effort to combine long wear, ride quality and durability, the P4 Four Seasons Plus features a redesigned casing profile in tandem with twin steel belts that are spirally wrapped with nylon. What you’re left with is a tire that’s quiet on the pavement and absorbs bumps and potholes nicely, so you can always enjoy your drive in peace and comfort.

Along with incredible winter performance, fuel economy and tread life are definitely two of the major benefits of buying this tire. The Pirelli P4 Four Season Plus boasts one the longest tread lives in the all season category, which Pirelli have been confident enough to back up with a generous 90,000 mile tread warranty.

The Pirelli P4 Four Season Plus is a great economical tire that welcomes weather in all four seasons to ensure you’re safe and enjoying you’re driving from one end of the year to the other.
