: 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
