Pirelli Tires Review

We particularly like Pirelli tires compared to other more popular brands. Besides the comparatively lower price compared to tires from other more popular brands, Pirelli tires offer great performance in all types of driving scenarios and racing applications.

There is a reason why the LaFerrari and the McLaren P1 (both of which are among the fastest hypercars in production) are wearing Pirelli P Zero tires. If prestigious brands such as Ferrari and McLaren trust Pirelli tires, why shouldn’t you, right?

Let’s go back to the price. Off course, the price is relative to the performance characteristics of the tire. It is fair to pay a higher price for a tire that benefits from green technology and state-of-the-art tire compounds that offer elevated levels of grip in both wet and dry pavement, but it seems Pirelli takes it further by offering a lower price on their tires. Mind you, the Pirelli brand has been in the market since 1872, but their new generation set of tires are highly regarded for being more affordable without sacrificing wet and dry performance.

Pirelli & C. S.p.A. was founded by Giovanni Battista Pirelli in Milan, Italy back in 1872. Pirelli tires are included in the list of the largest tire manufacturers in the world behind Bridgestone, Michelin, Continental, and Goodyear. The brand is present in 160 countries in all five continents and is the OEM supplier of tires for over 2,300 car models across the globe.

Why Choose Pirelli Tires?

  • Affordable price

There’s no question Pirelli tires are among the best in the market, but they differentiate themselves further by offering a slightly lower price tag over other leading brands. We’re not saying Pirelli tires are cheap, but their slightly higher-than-average price tag is a big turn on for consumers who like sticking to a particular budget.

  • Motorsports pedigree

The sporting heritage of Pirelli tires dates back to 1907 in the Peking-Paris race. The brand is also a leading sponsor of Formula 1 and FIM Superbike racing. We like tire brands that are involved in the racing scene because this is the perfect testing ground to develop new and innovative products for the consumer market. What Pirelli learns on the racetrack is applied to our humble city roads and highways.

  • Great looks

We have said it again and again: it is foolish to judge a tire based on looks, but it always helps if the tire is stylish enough to enhance the styling of your vehicle. When it comes to cars and fashion, it is hard to argue with the Italians. Pirelli tires are among the best-looking tires in the business. Even the basic all-season tire from Pirelli looks the part without going overboard on the price.

2018 Pirelli Tires Review

In this 2018 Pirelli tires review, we will look into the most popular offerings in the Pirelli lineup of tires so can get an idea on the general characteristics and performance of each tire.

Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus Review - 1

The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus is an all-season touring tire that is applicable to compact cars, midsize sedans, and small crossover vehicles. This tire is all about the numbers: it offers 15% less rolling resistance to improve fuel economy, it is manufactured with 47% better tread life for longer wear, and it offers a 5% reduction in road noise to deliver a refined driving experience.

The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus are the perfect tires for normal day-to-day driving. It is not a sporty or high-performance tire that can adhere perfectly on wet and dry pavement, but it offers higher levels of traction and braking performance while remaining quiet and comfortable when you need it most. This tire starts at approximately $100 upwards.

Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus review - 1

 The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus is an all-season touring tire designed for small soups, sedans, and minivans. Featuring an aggressive looking tread pattern with an extra wide center rib, this tire is designed to offer superior traction and control. The reinforced shoulder design also offers excellent cornering, braking, and handling. The tire is equipped with multiple sipes on the face of the tread to enhance wet and snow traction.

But the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus is a touring tire from the core, so you can also expect a smooth, quiet, and comfortable ride along with low levels of road noise. This tire also starts at upwards of $100 each and is offered in 14” to 17” sizes.

Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus review - 1

The Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus is an ultra-high performance tire designed for all-season driving. It is the most basic performance derivative in the P Zero family but there is nothing basic about the features of this tire. It is equipped with four wide circumferential grooves to provide better performance on wet and slippery roads. It is manufactured using an advanced polymer and silica tread compound to offer higher levels of traction and grip with less wear.

What we really like about the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus is the good ride comfort and low noise. It feels like a high-performance touring tire on smooth highways. Even though this tire is one of the more expensive variants, it can enhance the road behavior and high-speed performance of your vehicle. In our book, this tire offers excellent value for money.

Conclusion

Check out our comprehensive Pirelli tires review if you wish to know more about the most popular and bestselling tires in the Pirelli lineup. You can expect to pay a bit more, but you can also expect your vehicle to perform better if you choose Pirelli tires for your vehicle.

Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus Review

Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus Review

  • Dry 90%
  • Wet 80%
  • Snow 70%
  • Comfort 90%
  • Noise 85%
  • Treadwear 85%
  • Overall 84%

The word ‘verde’ in Italian means ‘green’. The Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus is an eco-friendly tire for small to midsize crossovers and sport utility vehicles. This tire is primarily designated as an all-season touring tire but the ‘Scorpion’ moniker means it can also handle light off-road duty. Come to think about it, when was the last time you came across a touring tire with the rugged DNA of an all-terrain tire? But the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus is not just about on-road and off-road performance. This green tire also incorporates low rolling resistance and reduced weight to enhance the fuel economy while reducing the CO2 emissions of your SUV. It all sounds unbelievable, right? Well, you better believe it. The Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus offers all of that and much more. In reality, it has to be good since each tire will start upwards of $130 to $150 each. This is not the right tire to choose if you are short on cash, but very few SUV tires can offer the capabilities of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus. In this review, I was fortunate to acquire a 2012 Volvo XC90 SUV equipped with stock 20-inch wheels and Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus Tires. My test vehicle is the R-Design model with the 3.2-liter V6 gasoline motor and 6-speed automatic transmission.

I am entirely familiar with the merits of the Volvo XC90. It offers the refinement of a sedan and the off-road capabilities of a true-blue sport-utility vehicle. The owner told me he used to have highway-terrain tires on his ride. He decided to upgrade to a more rugged set of tires when he bought a piece of land that he turned into a chicken farm. That’s right, a chicken farm. How will the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus tires fare on a variety of smooth roads and rugged trails? That’s what I’m here to find out.

Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus Review: Features

I previously mentioned the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus is not the most economical choice for an SUV tire, but the tire is actually way cheaper than a comparable set of Michelin or Goodyear tires. The Scorpion Verde All Season Plus is built with Pirelli’s PNCS or Pirelli Noise Cancelling System. This technology utilizes a sound absorbing device applied to the inside circumferential wall of the tire top significantly reduce road noise. The tire is also equipped with optimized pitch sequence and phasing on the treads to further lower the internal noise. The tire also has a larger contact patch with four wide longitudinal grooves to offer better traction on wet and snow-covered roads. The tire is also equipped with a large number of longitudinal siping with high-lateral sipe density to offer excellent all-season performance even on light snow. The Scorpion Verde All Season Plus is manufactured by using a silica-enhanced tread compound to deliver exceptional all-season performance.

Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus Review: Test Drive

There is a reason why some car buyers still prefer the old Volvo XC90 over the new model. This is the type of SUV that you can really drive every single day. It is not as big and wide as the Ford Expedition yet it is more refined and spacious than a comparable Acura MDX or Ford Flex.

Dry Traction

This might sound like an overstatement, but the Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus tires were able to stick like super glue on dry pavement. The steering felt responsive and braking was superb given the size and weight of my test vehicle. Handling was also excellent as long as you remain judicious with your steering and throttle inputs. It really felt like my test vehicle was riding on summer tires in the dry. It was that good. Planning to do some off-road driving? No sweat. The tires are equipped to handle light off-road trails without a hitch.

Wet Traction

It’s sort of a mixed bag when you’re driving in the wet. At slow to moderate speeds, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus tires felt confident in the wet. But if you like driving at higher speeds on a wet highway, you better keep a firm grip on the wheel as the tires have a tendency to temporarily break traction as you drive on rain-soaked pavement.

Snow Traction

Traction and grip in the snow was quite admirable. However, if you are planning to take your SUV to a skiing holiday, it is better to upgrade to a proper set of snow tires since the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus is not designed to tackle heavy snow.

Comfort

The suspension tuning of my test vehicle was the perfect match for the comfortable nature of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus tires. Make no mistake about it since the Volvo XC90 is renowned for its ride comfort, but the tires were able to elevate the comfort levels to another notch. Considering the fact my test vehicle was riding on 20-inch wheels, this is high praise indeed.

Noise

Since the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus is basically a touring tire at the very core, it comes as no surprise that it rolled quietly even as I was breaching the speed limit on the highway. The tires were whisper-quiet at slow speeds and they remained muffled even at higher speeds. If you demand a comfortable and silent tire for your SUV, you don’t need to look further than this.

Treadwear

The Pirelli Scropion Verde All Season Plus tires in my test vehicle were purchased more than five months ago but the tires showed no signs of accelerated wear. I gave the tires a closer look and found minimal signs of wear on all four corners of the vehicle.

Conclusion

If you can afford it, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus is one of the best tires for sport-utility vehicles and luxury pickup trucks. This is the type of tire that can perform exceptionally well in all types of weather and road conditions without sacrificing comfort and a silent ride.

Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus Review

Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus Review

  • Dry 75%
  • Wet 75%
  • Snow 70%
  • Comfort 85%
  • Noise 85%
  • Treadwear 90%
  • Overall 80%

Similar to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus, the P4 Four Seasons Plus is also an all-season touring tire that is perfect for sport coupes, small and midsize sedans, and even family minivans. But unlike the Cinturato P7, the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus is primarily designed to deliver a comfortable life and exceptionally long tread life. In fact, the P4 Four Seasons Plus is backed by a 90,000-mile treadwear warranty compared to the Cinturato P7’s 70,000-mile warranty.

For this review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus, I was able to acquire a 2010 Mercury Grand Marquis as a test vehicle. This will be my first time to drive a Mercury Grand Marquis. From what I heard, the car handles like a boat, which is typical of an ancient American sedan. But despite the nautical handling characteristics of the sedan, my colleagues told me the car can cruise effortlessly due to the soft and compliant suspension set-up.

My test vehicle was fitted with stock 17-inch wheels and Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus tires, which were acquired about 3 months ago. Also standard was the 4.6-liter V8 motor paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission. The Mercury Grand Marquis had a spacious interior and can accommodate six passengers inside the cavernous cabin. My test vehicle was particularly in good shape, save for some paint oxidation and a couple of dents on the equally enormous body.

Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus Review: Features

The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Tire is equipped with a more aggressive tread pattern compared to the conservative and bland tread design of the Cinturato P7 all-season touring tire. The P4 is equipped with a CAD-optimized tread profile which is designed to promote long wear. The silica-rich tread compound is also designed for longevity and low rolling resistance to further increase the life of the tire. The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus is designed with reinforced shoulders to enhance handling and cornering. The tire is engineered with central longitudinal grooves and a wide center rib to enhance stability and performance on wet pavement. The treads are designed with variable angled grooves to offer better performance in all types of weather, hence the name ‘Four Seasons’. The treads are equipped with computer-designed sipes to offer solid traction on wet and snowy roads. It seems the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus has got all the bases covered, except the price. This tire is a bit more costly compared to the Cinturato P7, but in exchange, you get the promise of longer tread life and better fuel economy.

Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus Review: Test Drive

However, fuel economy was the farthest thing in my mind as I hopped aboard the Mercury Grand Marquis. My test vehicle is equipped with a primitive 4-speed automatic and burly V8 motor so it is rather absurd to expect good fuel economy. With that being said, it is time to find out how the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus performs in a variety of road conditions.

Dry Traction

The tires offered high levels of traction and grip on dry roads. Even though the suspension of my test vehicle was more oriented towards comfort (hence the floaty sensation), the tires were able to deliver solid traction and grip even as I pushed hard on the pedal. The steering is not what you would call precise, and the brakes felt spongy to say the least, but the tires were able to corner and stop my test vehicle without much fuss and drama. Of course, handling was a different issue altogether. Even if you equip the Grand Marquis with high-performance rubber, you will need balls the size of Mount Rushmore and the abilities of a racing to corner the large vehicle at speed.

Wet Traction

In all fairness, the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus performed well on wet roads and slippery tarmac. Braking was also admirable given the size and weight of my test vehicle. However, you will still need to be careful if you are attacking a winding corner in the wet. The tail has a tendency to slide out if you are overly aggressive with the steering and the throttle. But if you drive it sanely, you can expect to navigate smoothly over the wettest road conditions with nary a complaint.

Snow Traction

The tires were tolerable on light snow, and that’s about it. Anything more than two or three inches of snow or ice will result in a driving sensation similar to skating on thick ice. However, the computer-optimized siping on the treads were able to provide adequate grip even on slippery road conditions.

Comfort

There is no doubt the Mercury Grand Marquis is a comfortable highway cruiser. The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus was able to elevate the comfort factor of my test vehicle by another notch. Potholes, craters, and road undulations on tight city streets were reduced to almost nothing with the Pirelli P4 tires. The tires were also comfortable on the highway.

Noise

The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus tires rolled quietly on smooth concrete and asphalt. The tires also offered a silent ride even if you happen to be traversing over crude patches of tarmac. You will still hear some tire roar as you pile on the speed, but it seems these tires are quieter than the Pirelli Cinturato P7.

Treadwear

The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus tires fitted on my test car were still relatively fresh at the time of this review. I inspected all four tires and found no signs of premature wear on the treads. The owner of my test vehicle said the primary factor he chose the Pirelli tires is the long tread life and 90,000-mile treadwear warranty. Even the hardworking fellas at the neighborhood tire store were convinced on the long wear characteristics of the P4 Four Seasons Plus.

Conclusion

The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus is a brilliant choice for an all-season touring tire. The price may be a turn off for some buyers who are looking to save money on a brand new set of tires, but it more than makes up for it in terms of all-season performance and low wear.

Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus Review

Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus Review

  • Comfort 75%
  • Noise 85%
  • Treadwear 80%
  • Overall 80%
In the family of ultra-high performance P Zero tires, the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus is considered the tamest of them all. This tire is designed to meet the demands of sports cars, coupes, and sedans and is particularly crafted for all season performance, even on light snow.

I said the P Zero All Season Plus is tame since it comes with a conservative and plain-Jane asymmetric tread design. However, don’t be fooled by the looks because the enhanced silica and polymer compound is formulated to offer exceptional wet and dry performance along with excellent handling and braking.

In this review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus, I searched long and hard to find a sporty European or Italian test car so I can test the capabilities of the tire.

All I managed to find was a 2014 Acura RLX sedan fitted with large 19-inch wheels and P Zero All Season Plus tires, which was more than enough for this review.

The car was equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine with variable cylinder management and direct injection. The engine churns out 310 horsepower to the front wheels courtesy of the six-speed automatic transmission.

I have to admit I’m not a big fan of Acura vehicles, but I was excited to put the Acura RLX sedan through its paces to test the handling, braking, and comfort levels of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus tires.

The owner of my test vehicle bought the tires about six months ago and was able to drive his car on a variety of road conditions including winter driving on light snow.

He told me that he loves the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus since the tires were able to deliver luxury-car levels of comfort without compromising wet and dry handling.

Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus Review: Features

The Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus is equipped with four circumferential grooves to quickly disperse water and improve handling and grip on wet roads.

The enhanced silica and polymer tread compound were specifically formulated to deliver excellent all season traction and grip with lower wear characteristics.

The tire is also equipped with variable-sized tread elements to minimize road noise at low and high speeds.

The inner blocks are equipped with winter siping technology to provide adequate grip on snow-covered roads.

The lateral siping on the outside shoulder block is designed to maximize dry grip and cornering performance to improve the overall handling and stability of your ride.

Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus Review: Test Drive

The Acura RLX is not what you would call an all-out luxury sedan even though it is equipped with a spacious and comfortable cabin. It is a luxurious sports sedan with sharp handling and a rev-happy V6 motor.

However, the car had unusually large yet uncomfortable seats and the steering felt a bit disconnected to be properly classified as a sports saloon.

The standard 19-inch wheels also gave the car a firmer and harsher ride.

Will the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus improve the handling and ride of my test vehicle? Let’s find out.

Dry Traction

Despite the minor drawbacks with the steering and the ride, the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus felt excellent on dry pavement.

Acceleration and braking were pretty strong given the size and bulk of my test vehicle.

I was able to navigate over fast and winding corners without upsetting the overall balance and composure of the Acura RLX.

However, the numb and disconcerting steering will require a lot of corrections if you wish to conquer twisting mountainous roads.

I really felt my test vehicle was more at home on the highway than attacking corners at speed.

Wet Traction

It was raining hard during the first part of my review. This gave me ample time to discern the characteristics of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus on wet pavement.

The tires offered good grip in the wet and braking felt confident as I was hauling down the large sedan to a full stop from higher speeds.

Acceleration was also excellent as the tires were able to grip the wet tarmac even in the presence of some mud, dirt, sand, and water puddles.

Snow Traction

I didn’t get the chance to test the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus on snowy roads.

I talked to the owner of the Acura RLX about this and he told me the tires were more than adequate on light snow.

Of course, you will have to exercise restraint as you accelerate from a full stop since stabbing the gas pedal will only turn on the traction control system of the vehicle as the tires hunt for traction on slippery pavement.

Comfort

It is hard to judge the comfort levels of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus since my test vehicle came with 19-inch wheels and unpredictable suspension.

The ride was a bit harsh to be quite honest, and the suspension can’t seem to make up its mind as you traverse over rough patches of tarmac.

However, the suspension will settle down as you glide on smooth roads.

Noise

The Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus tires rolled silently even if the ride was a bit disconcerting.

The tires remained hushed even as I sped on the highway and they were still relatively silent as I navigated my way in the city.

Treadwear

The Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus tires in my test vehicle were aging gracefully. Yes, I found traces of wear upon close inspection on all four tires but this is par for the course, especially when I found out the tires were purchased more than 6 months ago.

Conclusion

The Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus tires fitted to my test vehicle are not what you could call cheap, but they are one of the best ultra-high performance all-season tires for the money.

Before we proceed to the features and review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus, allow me to disclose something unique about this tire: it was specifically designed for the luxury touring market in North America.

Pirelli also offers the Cinturato All Season and All Season Plus with a large center block and directional tread design. The ‘Plus’ moniker refers to Pirelli’s Puncture Control Technology called Seal Inside. This technology will enable you to still drive your vehicle safely even after a puncture.

This review will focus on the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. The tire has a rather bland and conservative asymmetrical tread design and is built mainly for passenger cars and small crossovers. Sedate driving is the key to enjoying the merits of the Cinturato P7 All Season Plus since the tire is not chiefly designed for sporty driving.

With that in mind, I was fortunate to get my hands on a 2013 Toyota Camry SE with the 2.5-liter four-banger and six-speed automatic transmission.

My test car came with stock 17-inch wheels and was previously fitted with Michelin MXV tires.

I asked the owner why he chose the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus over the Michelins and he told me he didn’t want to spend more than $500 on a brand new set of tires.

It actually makes sense, right? The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus will start at around $100 each, which is a slight difference compared to the price of the Michelin tires.

But are the Pirelli tires better than the old Michelins despite the lower price?

Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus Review: Features

The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus offers a 15% reduction in rolling resistance compared to comparable all-season tires. The Cinturato P7 is desgined and manufactured to offer 47% better tread life and a 5% reduction in road noise to deliver a quiet and refined ride.

The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus is equipped with an optimized tread pattern with pitch sequencing and phasing that effectively cancels or lowers internal noise.

The tire has four wide longitudinal grooves that helps in dispersing water on wet roads.

It is also equipped with longitudinal siping and a high density of lateral sipes for better all-season performance even in light snow.

The tire is backed by a 70,000-mile limited treadwear warranty and 30-day trial. If you are not satisfied with the performance of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus, you can return it within 30 days. When was the last time that a cheap tire was able to offer that kind of warranty?

Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus Review: Test Drive

The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires on my test car were approximately 5 months old and have traversed a rough total of 4,500 or so miles.

The Camry is not what you could call a sporty sedan, but so is the Cinturato P7 All Season Plus.

From the moment I hopped inside the Camry, I felt the Pirelli tires were a perfect match to the road manners of my test vehicle.

Dry Traction

The tires offered excellent traction and grip on dry pavement.

I took the Camry for a high-speed run on an empty stretch of secluded highway and the tires performed admirably despite the presence of sand and dust on the highway.

Handling and cornering was on the average side of the spectrum since the body roll and dull steering of my test vehicle will prohibit you from pushing it to the max when attacking tight corners.

Wet Traction

There was a light drizzle in the evening and I got the chance to test the tires in the wet. The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus were just as good in the soaking wet pavement as they were in the dry.

You will feel the tires hunting for grip if you really push it on wet roads, but like I said before this review, the Camry is not a car that you should drive aggressively.

Snow Traction

I was also able to test the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus in the snow.

The tires felt confident on light snow but you will need proper snow tires if you live in colder climates.

I guess the sipe density on the tread of the tires did their job well, but don’t expect the tires to acquit themselves in a blizzard.

Comfort

The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus is basically an all-season touring tire, so I was expecting the tires to be smooth and comfortable on the highway. I wasn’t disappointed.

The tires were one of the most comfortable touring tires I have tested. I was a bit surprised since the tires are basically cheaper than a comparable set of Bridgestone or Michelin touring tires.

Noise

The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires are not only comfortable, they were relatively quiet as well.

As with other touring tires, the road noise is relative to the speed of the vehicle. Tire roar is more pronounced at higher speeds, but it wasn’t enough to upset my driving experience.

The tires were a bit noisier on coarse patches of tarmac and asphalt as well.

I took the Camry for some city driving and the tires were whisper quiet at low speeds.

Treadwear

Pirelli designed the Cinturato P7 All Season Plus to deliver exceptional wear characteristics.

The tires on my test vehicle are not what you would call brand new, but the treads were still fresh with minimal signs of wear.

I talked with the local tire dealer and they said some customers were not impressed with the wear characteristics of the Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. I guess this will all depend on your driving style.

Conclusion

I highly recommend the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season tires. Considering the price and performance of the tires on wet and dry pavement, this is one of the best affordable tires that I have tested so far.
