To be honest, I prefer not to buy products from France.
The Pirelli P Zero can hold it's own with the Michelin PS2 performance wise.
Wet traction, dry traction, treadwear, tire weights, etc. are all very close.
The P Zero beats the PS2 by a slim margin in some categories, while the PS2 edges out the P Zero in others.
So it's a tougher call than some would think...
I have recommended both tires over the years, and they each seem to have a loyal fan base in the high-performance tire market.
With all that said, I would only recommend the Pirelli Zero for wheels with tricky offsets that require a skinny width tire
within a given size.
, I would never
buy a Pirelli high-performance tire.
lol...on your France comment.
