Pirelli and McLaren collaborate on bespoke winter tire package

Pirelli has worked with McLaren to develop to a new winter wheel and tire package for McLaren Sports Series models. The set consists of four, 14-spoke lightweight forged wheels in stealth finish, fitted with Pirelli MC Sottozero 3 winter tires, equipped with McLaren TPMS.

Carl Whipp, aftersales director at McLaren Automotive, said, “Regardless of whether winter tires are a legal requirement, having them ready and waiting on a second set of wheels will allow customers to switch to the optimum tire choice quickly and easily when winter arrives – which is why we have teamed up with our tire partner, Pirelli, to offer the McLaren Winter Wheels and Tyres set exclusively through McLaren retailers.”

The Pirelli MC Sottozero 3 rubber features a tread pattern with a high drainage level, which reduces the chance of hydroplaning and ensures maximum grip. The tires are said to work on both wet and dry roads when temperatures are low but not necessarily at freezing point; as a guide, once the ambient temperature regularly drops below 7°C (44°F), both McLaren and Pirelli recommend the use of winter tires.
