An additional set of wheels

Pirelli and McLaren have teamed up once again. The Winter Sottozero Serie 3 which was already approved and available as original equipment for several Sport Series McLarens, will now also be available as an additional winter wheel and tyre package for the 540C, 570S, 570GT and 570S Spider.

The objective of this new option is to increase the use of winter tyres among drivers of the British brand’s sports cars. Customers will therefore be encouraged to choose between summer and winter tyres as original fitment for their car. Depending on the set of tyres chosen, McLaren will supply complete wheels – with light alloy rims – equipped for the other season. Ready to fit, and easy to store, these wheels will help to extend tyre life.

“Choosing the right type of tyre to suit seasonal weather and road conditions should be a priority for every McLaren driver wanting to enjoy their car safely all-year round” said Carl Whipp, Aftersales director at McLaren Automotive. “Regardless of whether winter tyres are a legal requirement, having them ready and waiting on a 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”.

The wheels are available from all McLaren retailers in Europe and North America.
