Pirelli Winter 210 Sottozero is a high performance winter car tyre for use in sports cars, sports coupes and sedans. A dual-season tyre, this Pirelli can be used from mid-autumn to Spring and also during severe, freezing temperatures. Hence, ideally, it is a dual season tyre.
Pirelli Winter 210 Sottozero features an asymmetric tread design with many intermediate tread elements distinct enough to provide traction on snow and ice and good performance on dry and wet conditions. The tread elements are aggressively siped which provide biting edges on snow and ice, while even distribution of pressure across the tread promise good dry performance. The tyre comes with dual compound technology – the cap and base technology. This means, the upper strata (the cap) which is in contact with road is made with different materials from the lower strata (the base) that is in contact with the carcass. The cap in Pirelli Winter 210 Sottozero has Pirelli's latest generation of silicates, while the base has nano-composites or aluminum silicates. Both these compounds stability while driving through wet and winter weather conditions.
Pirelli Winter 210 Sottozero comes with the snowflake on the mountain symbol which means the tyre meets all the severe snow requirements of the industry.

The Italian manufacturer Pirelli was declared favourite by renowned automobile magazines after the summer tires tests, held in Germany, in 2006. Very appreciated by the critics, these tires received attributes going from "very recommended" to "highly recommended". Founded in Milan, at the end of the 19th century Pirelli has definitely won its place among the greatest tire manufacturers in the world. Design and high technology: the Italians imposed their marks on the field with their perception of the tire mixing both the technical perfection and the most "design" aesthetics. In 2004, Pirelli "showed off" with Subaru, in the World Rally Championship. More recently they have become associates with Ford, who chose Pirelli as a strategic partner in 2006.
