    Best All-season replacement for stock 205/40R17 Pirelli P-Zero Nero Three-season?

    Hi all,

    About to sign dotted line for a bianco Abarth with the 17-inch gloss white wheels / three-season 205/40R17 Pirelli P-Zero Neros.
    However - living in New England, guess I'll have to quickly replace the stock 3-season rubber with an all-season equivalent.

    Any suggestions/thoughts on the best choices for closest comparable all-season replacement for the stock Pirellis?

    Also: I see on the sun visor wrapper sleeve of important notice info - Fiat warns the equipped tires should not be operated in temperatures less than 40 degrees F. So I realize the 3-season can't be used in snow/ice, but is there any inherent risk of use in dry conditions with temps <40F? Is there any danger with the integrity of the rubber under the 40F temp?

    Sorry for the noob questions.

    Thanks everyone!

    You will regularly see sets of the Abarth 16" wheels and tires for sale on here and ebay. Buy a set of those for the winter - that's what I did.

    Same here.

    And when the all seasons wear out, I will put a set of true winter tires on the 16" rims.

    The P7 is a great tire as long as we don't get too much snow but all around excellent in wet and dry.

    Can't help you with most of your questions but definitely don't buy Nitto's as they are frightful even on cold wet roads. I did and I'm sorry. I won't be using mine in the snow and ice. That's what my wife's Jap appliance is for.

    i'm not sure if they have them in the correct size but i have had great success with the Continental DWS's. they do well in snow for an all season tire and handle well too.

    I tried to go with the DWS myself but sizes suck. Ended up with the Kumho Ecsta 4X A/S for my winter tires. Haven't driven in snow yet so can't comment on that but have them on the C30 with no major issues. The stock P-Zeros likely won't get hurt by using them in cold temps - they'll just lose traction compared to higher temps. Drive below their limit and it's not a biggie.

    Ahh.. good! Then maybe I can consider not swapping the P-Zeros... I should be able to work something out to keep the car off snow - but definitely can't avoid temps under 40 degrees F, which of course is a pretty high percentage of southern Connecticut winter.

    I was pretty bummed as well, to see the DWS's were not available in a size to fit the Abarth. They wear great and are very quiet! I ended up running them year round because the ride was great and the performed awesome in the rain!

    Just watch out for cold AND wet - talk about lack of traction. I drove my S2000 with the OEM summer tires in the cold with no problems but made sure I knew where the limits were and stayed below them.
