Default Opinions about this tyre ?

Just had new front tyres fitted..... ( Pirelli P zero 245/40 R19 98Y )..........previous ( Falken fk453 245/40 R19 98Y )

I have noticed quite a difference with feedback from the steering , feel much more in control of the car , where as before if you go over slight bumps on the road , the car would wander all over the place ? , also the
ride feels slightly softer ?


I noticed after the tyres were fitted , they are not the same as the pic above , was told these are the newer Pirelli P zero tyres ?

Not really sure what your question is but all of the things you noticed improvements in are simply attributable to two things:

1. They're brand new Pirellis.

2. Pirelli P-Zipps are acknowledged as world class leading, right up there with Michelin PS/PSS. IOW, there's very little comparison between a $300 P-Zipp and a Falken that isn't a race tire (like the UTQG 200 615s). I sold Falkens a few years back and they are decent bang-for-the-buck tires but are not in the same class as the Pirellis.
