Pirelli, the Italian tire manufacturer, has unveiled the custom-made tires that were developed excuslively for the new BMW M8.
As you already know, the BMW M8 models are using a V8 4.4 liter engine which can deliver up to 625 horsepower via an automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system. The not to 100 km/h is done in 3.2 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 250 km/h.
In order to cope with this amount of power, BMW has called Pirelli to do some special tires. The P Zero product was specially modified and developed for this amount of power developed by the M8.
The development means that the BMW-homologated tires, distinguished by a star marking on their sidewall, offer greater performance in the wet and dry, under braking, and on track compared to the already known P-Zeros.
The tires comes with a special tread pattern and different layer constructions used in the tire carcasses. The tires are 275/35 ZR 20 on the front and 285/35 ZR 20 on the rear. The fronts are featuring a symmetrical carcass structure, while the rear have an asymmetrical structure.
