    If I'm seeing this correctly the optional tire for 2015 was the P Zero "summer tire" and the optional tire for 2016 is now the P Zero "three-season" high-performance tire?

    The concern many have explained is the "summer tire" is severely compromised at temps of 40 & below.

    Curious if the 2016 "three season" tire is an improvement at the lower temps??

    Maybe it's the exact same tire with a more attractive name ---------- 1 season vs 3 seasons ????

    Thank you!

    No, three season tire is the same three season tire. Less dry traction, better cold weather performance. Not suitable for winter driving where there is snow or cold weather.

    Thank you ----- just to make sure I understand this: For 2016 there are 2 tires; the "all season tire" which is standard ---- and an optional "performance" tire, essentially the same as 2015? The dealer he had no specific info on exactly what the optional tire is, but assumed it was identical to the 2015 summer tire.

    PZero Nero - All Season
    PZero - 3 Season

    Same tires from 2015; just a price change for the 3 season
