Pirelli P Zero tires to be OE on '15 Mustang GT

Posted on January 14, 2014

Pirelli Tire North America Inc. says it has continued its well-established technical partnership with Ford Motor Co. in announcing that the 19-inch P Zero and 19-inch P Zero Nero all-season tires will be OE fitments for the 2015 Mustang GT model.

This latest fitment lines up alongside the other Pirelli tires that equip Ford models such as the Ford Edge, Ford Expedition and Ford F-150.

There are three engine variants for the new 2015 Mustang: V6, I4 turbo, and V8 (on the GT). Pirelli will provide P Zero fitments for the vehicles in these sizes:

  • 255/40ZR19 96Y P ZERO: front tire for Mustang GT and all around fitment on I4 EcoBoost Performance package;
  • 275/40ZR19 101Y P ZERO: rear tire for Mustang GT used with 255/40ZR19 PZERO front;
  • 255/40ZR19 96W P Zero Nero all-season: offered on I4 and GT; and
  • 265/35ZR20 99Y XL P ZERO: offered on I4 and GT.

Pirelli says the 19-inch P Zero Nero all-season has been developed to cope with the high performance demands generated by the latest generation iconic Mustang model from Ford. Thanks to its asymmetric all-season tread design, the P Zero Nero all-season is an UHP tire that offers enhanced winter traction, consistent grip for acceleration and braking and a high level of wet grip as a result of its four proportioned channels, which improve control in aquaplaning situations, the company notes.
