Pirelli to produce winter tyre package for McLaren
Italian tyre-maker Pirelli has teamed up with British sports car maker McLaren to deliver a new winter wheel and tyre package for McLaren Sports Series models. Developed by McLaren and Pirelli engineers specifically for the McLaren Sports Series family – the 540C, 570S, 570GT and new 570S Spider – the set comes fully assembled and ready to fit, allowing owners to swap quickly and easily to winter tyres. The McLaren Winter Wheels and Tyres set is available from McLaren Retailers in the UK, Europe and North America. The tyres set consists of four, 14-spoke Lightweight Forged wheels in Stealth finish, fitted with Pirelli MC Sottozero 3 winter tyres, incorporated with the McLaren tyre pressure monitoring system.
Carl Whipp, Aftersales Director, McLaren Automotive said that choosing the right tyre to suit seasonal weather and road conditions should be a priority for every McLaren driver wanting to enjoy car safely all-year round.
“Regardless of whether winter tyres are a legal requirement, having them ready and waiting for the second set of wheels, will allow customers to switch to the optimum tyre choice quickly and easily when winter arrives – which is why we have teamed up with our tyre partner, Pirelli, to offer the McLaren Winter Wheels and Tyres set exclusively through McLaren Retailers,” he added.
