Luke,
What is the story on the new PZero? I've read all the traditional info but I was curious what the driving habits of this tire are like. (vs Pilot Sport, S02PP's, etc)

I remember the old PZeros as being sticky as hell dry, noisy as hell, scary in the wet, and a bit "backstabbing" near the limit. What is your take of the new/old P-Zero family?

Thanks...Lee

Well, I'm not Luke, but I just read a story about them in the August issue of European Car. They seem to loose a little traction on the dry, but gain a lot in the wet area. They are also supposed to be quite quieter. They appear to be most impressive. I am thinking of buying a set. I would also like to hear Luke's comments on the tire.

The main reason for the "Rosso" design change was to reduce the noise that the asy makes. They did achieve what they were trying to accomplish. I just wish they went to a modern tread design and made them perform up to the standards set by Pilot Sport and the S-02. They are quieter but will turn you around without much warning and do not outperform the others in any catagory.
Thanks, Luke
