Thumbs up Pirelli P7000 SS 500 mile review

Well, I've had my Pirellis (in stock RS size) on for about 500 miles now, and I figured I'd post my impressions about them, whether you want to hear it or not.

First, for some perspective. My previous setup was stock 1995 L suspension with 13" General tires. They were the cheapest I could find, so you can imagine how horrible they were. Now with the Pirellis and RS suspension, all I can say is WOW! What a difference. There are a set of turns that I'm very familiar with (in a basically empty industrial park) that I could formerly take at full speed (with a 1.8L, that's not much) and get a nice drift in a couple of them. Now, I can't work up enough speed for it to even be exciting. The speed is pretty much the same, mind you, it's just pretty drama free.

They are very quiet, except when pushed hard. I really like the way they give you auditory feedback; when you push them just a little too hard, they make a bit of noise but still hold on. Push harder and they warn you more, and gradually wash out. Very nice, very predictable, very easy to handle.

I haven't driven them in rain or snow yet, but I think they will do ok (in the rain anyway). One downside that I have seen is that they tend to follow pavement ruts pretty badly at low speed, but it's nothing an attentive driver should mind too badly. So far so good, and as of now, I think I'd buy these tires again.
