The P-Zeros are not dangerous.
If you’re not aware of the limitations of your vehicle and drive to the conditions then you shouldn’t be on the road.
Ok... I call this bullshit and bite.... if you drive a high powered car- you have a responsibility to be able to handle it and bring it back under control. This stuff can happen inadvertently and catches out the unwary...... just look at mums against mustangs on facebook. Apart from being the single most funny thing.... except the rude silvianin families thing- forest friends.... it shows what can happen if you don't understand your car.
If you drive to the limits then you then you don't know what will happen when it goes tits up.... the key issue is where you drive beyond the limits.. ideally you should practice at an off track day ( we don't mention these much as bad hand tends to go in one car and come home in another... not tyre related of course)
so ultimately, the issue with p zeros is when they let loose.... for me as an experienced high power car driver they break to quickly. i enjoy it as it test me... but at first and I will be honest enough it caught me out and I looked a tit. I was only saved by living in 'merica with big wide roads and they just thought i was another inbred local with a couple of chromosomes missing, rather than the debonair and sauve british guy that i am.
So bottom line - if your self esteem is as low as your driving standards - stick with the pirellis. if you want to be safe and sound on the road invest in some off road track time, trash your zeros and buy some decent rubber that will run out before you run out of talent and when you do you might have a chance of protecting your arse and whomever's bottom is around you
sermon and beer mode off...
fell free to discuss or call me what ever....
