Overall, the Pirelli Cinturato P7 C2 summer tyre performed well on dry roads with good steering and braking capabilities, but struggled in wet conditions with mediocre grip and longer stopping distances. It also received mixed ratings in terms of environmental performance, with decent fuel efficiency but only average wear and tear. Some tests praised its low noise and comfortable ride, while others highlighted its lack of sharpness and unevenness. However, a recent updated version of the tyre showed significant improvements, providing balanced performance and low rolling resistance, with the only notable weakness being average aquaplaning resistance. Despite its past shortcomings, this Italian brand's latest iteration of the P7 is highly recommended by testers.
