Pirelli's performance tires are known for their cupping problems. I've heard many people over the years complain about this. I don't know why they have this problem but obviously it must be in the way they are constructed.

Personally, I can't imagine how they are able to continue to sell there performance tires with their long history of this problem.

I'll bet if you changed to another brand of tire you're cupping problem will be history!

You should post your question on the "tire rack forum". I'm sure the guys at Tire Rack will give you an honest (and educated) answer.

: A while ago i noticed that my front tires were cupping on the inside edge of my p7000 supersports. Today i noticed that back tires are doing the same thing. Is this just a problem with these tires. Many people on the board seem to have complained about the same thing. I have had 2 alignments done at the dealership and the car is not lowered. If i switch to a different brand of tires will this fix this problem

: Thanks
