Pirelli Zero Nero A/S in Snow?

I have the stock Pirelli Zero Nero A/S 245/45/19 tires and will be doing my first winter with them this year...For those that own them, how well do they work in the cold/snow/ice?

I managed last year in rural Indiana with no issues. Didn't even add weight in the trunk. I was going to order some Blizzaks but figured I would try them first, was hugely impressed.

Of course, if you drive like an idiot no tire will save you.

On my 2006 I drove through 4 winters on the Pirelli Pzero Nero all seasons; 45 mile each way commute in SE Michigan. Not a problem at all. The last set of tires on the car were the Nitto Motivo all seasons and I liked those better than the Pirelli. Quieter riding tire and better grip in the rain and snow.

The Pirelli P Zero Nero all season, or as I like to call it the Pirelli P Zero season, are overly expensive under performers with an abundance of tread noise. I've never been impressed with these tires.

Will your car spontaneously do back flips in the snow with these tires? No. But on the same token they are not great in cold wet conditions from my experience. Add in some ice and it could get hairy.

Nothing is better then a dedicated set of winter tires. Find some old beater rims on ebay and get a decent set of winter tires that will last you several seasons.

I have the standard 18s on my GT, still running the P Zeros, and ice/snow last week in Michigan was an interesting introduction to rear-wheel handling in low-traction conditions. It was very difficult to get started from any stop. I'm keeping them for fall/winter use since DC never gets real snow, but if I lived in the Midwest still I would drop them for Blizzaks or X-Ice.

The pirellis are IMHO a big mistake for the 5.0 or any rear wheel drive performance car. If it rains just enough too dampen the road it's like driving on ice. I have 245/ 19" all around and I'm changing the rears very soon. I almost lost it getting on the interstate at 40 miles an hour when I kicked to get in with traffic. Tightened my shorts up!!!!

I have the P Zeros on and drove home last weekend in a snow storm, they weren't bad at all but I am planning on getting a dedicated set of studded snow tires. Of course as soon as I put snow tires on, we won't get any snow.
