Oh and one more thing, I'm old enough to remember the original Cinturato. And this is purely personal, but I never got on with them. They certainly delivered an amazing tyre life and when fitted to VW Beetles, were a definite improvement on the factory fit Michelin ZXs. However, that's not saying much as ZXs had the worst wet performance of any contemporary tyre. As others have pointed out, the look is NOT deceptive and IME the Cints didn't work well in the wet. I've not tried the new ones, obviously - and Pirelli may have used a better compound this time around - but nothing much is going to help that original design tread pattern, which may have been OK for 60s cars performance, but has now been surpassed by modern tyre tech. Since I DO give my cars a bit of welly from time to time, i'd rather have a tyre that works best than one that looks period. Again, purely my own personal taste.
TL;DR Sometimes function trumps form.
With those 4 tiny patches of rubber being all there is between me staying on the road and being in a ditch, and as Steve says, I'll opt for the vastly improved modern compounds and computer designed/tested tyres with years of development over something designed by a bloke (bound to have been) in the 70s with a pencil and fag packet, even if it looked nicer.
