Montreal, Quebec – Pirelli has announced the introduction of a new light alloy wheel in Europe. The wheel, featuring the emblematic long Pirelli “P”, is licensed by Pirelli and produced in Italy by Antera.
The ultra-light wheel is a modern restyling of a Pirelli wheel launched in the early 1980s that quickly became popular with European car tuning enthusiasts. The design provides exceptional stability and sufficient space for oversized brake systems. The wheel will be launched in Germany in 2007 in 17-, 18- and 19-inch variations, sold only as fitted units with Pirelli P Zero Nero or P Zero Rosso tires. The company is also considering introducing the wheel to the North American market.
