Thread: Pirelli P6000 tires Asymmetrical

    Pirelli P6000 tires Asymmetrical

    In looking at Pirelli's web site and others, the Pirelli P6000 tires are asymmetrical.
    Learning that asymmetrical tires supposedly have inside and outside markings, I can not find anywhere on these tires that show writing, arrows, or other tire designation indicating inside and outside.
    I should also say these tires are mounted on wheels on the car. Makes it a little difficult to see under the car.
    Any Pirelli experts out there that will assist me in locating the markings inside and outside? Like maybe even a photo of the marking.
    Thank you

    I have an old set of Pirelli P6000 Sport Veloce tires and they are not asymmetrical.

    Ok, perhaps I need to qualify my question and query a little better.

    These are Pirelli P6000 and the DOT is 2021. I don't see Sport Veloce anywhere on the tire.
    They are 180/70 R 15

    I would tend to say that the sister P Zero tires are the asymmetrical ones…

    The P6000 tread pattern looks identical if it were flipped either way, leading me to believe they aren't directional.

    Checked my cars with P6000. Can speak only for N1,N2 and N3 marked Porsche spec P6000.DOT 2016/17/18/20/21.
    My P6000 have neither an Inside/outside nor an arrow marking, so symmetric.

    Thanks for the chart. I'll take another look at the Pirelli website as suggested earlier.
