I recently replaced the Michelin Latitude Tour tires that came with my Ford Edge with these Pirelli Scorpion Verdes and so far am very impressed. They actually feel more smooth than the Michelins and a slightly quieter ride. Haven't noticed any improvement on fuel mileage but that's not a major concern. I can say comparing these and the Michelins, for me these are a better tire.

Running on run flat tires was the worst tire experience I have ever had within my 40 years of driving.The stiff sidewalks transmit noise. No more bang from pot holes and my X5 is now quiet at high speeds. I purchased one of the last discontinued X5 factory spares kits, but a tow service membership is a great all-around protection whether with or without a spare. My old run flat tires lasted for 30 thousand painful miles and the lower cost of the new non run flat tires equates to 20 thousand miles to break even. This SUV is now set up to run on the highway and is not going to see much off-road adventure that would justify stronger sidewalls. This is my summer tire and so far so good. Just completed my 500 mile trip from the Sacramento Valley to the Central Oregon Coast up the I 5 corridor. The diesel motor loved the added grip and mini vans faded away thru the mountains.

I have never had a tire perform like these and last for 95,000+ miles. There was no question in my mind when it came time to replace them, I went right back for the SAME Pirelli Scorpion STR's. I am very happy with these tires.

Went to a custom size to fit these on Redline rims. Luv these tires, got me thru another harsh winter (for Ohio) and lacking the time & $$ to invest in summer tires right now, as I've read previously here I will take them into the summer months & keep an eye on treadwear & performance. I have some twisty S-turn hilly roads in my commute & the Scorpions got me up & down those roads this winter with nary a slip. Can't wait to get these for my wife's car as well!

These are one of the BEST cold-weather tires & possibly all-season as well. Pirelli: Keep up the great work!

I purchased these to replace a set of Prada Spec X when they only lasted 33K mi. and boy what an improvement. Tracking and handling is vastly improved as is road noise. Too soon to judge wet and snow, but judging from the tread pattern and dry performance I anticipate excellent performance there as well. Well Done Pirelli on the Plus.

I needed snow tires because I drove to Utah, Wyoming and Colorado for the winter almost every year, sometimes twice. I lived in Naples, Fl and left the tires on all year. I have bought tires from tire rack for all my cars since the early eighties. This is the best tire I have ever owned and served me well year round.

Just bought the new version (plus). I had the old version put on mistakenly for one day, and these feel and sound much better. Of course, 100 miles doesn't mean much, but I will update later. I chose this tire over the various Michellins because while they last forever, the cornering characteristics are a little less than what I prefer. We'll see if these LRR tires live up to Pirelli's claims in terms of tread wear and improved MPG. They also look really sharp! After the break in period I'll have a better idea about these shoes.

Much better than the OEM Goodyears... I've never been a fan of them -- they're not well engineered. Breaking distance is clearly shorter. I dumped these tires with 6 32s left because they didn't ride we'll on the Q5.

I recently switched to these Pirelli Verde tires from Michelin tires. I have always sworn by Michelins, and have run through quite a few sets over the past 30 years. The last set made an awful lot of road noise, making my Mercedes ML sound more like an econobox! From the beginning they always howled at certain speeds, and got louder as they wore down. As soon as I had the Pirellis installed I noticed an immense difference. They are amazingly quiet at all speeds. I am really very happy with them. They have good wet and dry grip. The ride is supple and controlled. The steering response is less exact and sharp compared to the Michelins. But who needs that in a big heavy diesel Mercedes!

Had almost no snow or ice this winter but lots of rain. As expected these tires handled the rain without issue. Superior wet weather performance.

After two mid-Atlantic winters these tires impress for their relative quiet, smoothness and overall competence on dry and wet roads. My mpg suffers only a little. I still have 12/32 tread on all 4 tires. Wear has been even, keeping the pressure at 38 to 40 psi.

Just (Mar 28, 2012) took them off for the summer. Put on a set of Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology on my OEM wheels.

After 5 Illinois winters and 5 snowy trips to MN in December, these are shot, but they have served their purpose. No accidents, no property damage, and strong piece of mine when driving on them. We are ready to purchase another set of the same, almost time to swap out for the 20's, summer is finally almost here. It's been a VERY long winter, and we've beaten our all-time snowfall record by almost 5" this year. Measurable snowfall 41 days this winter, also a record. I would absolutely recommend these to anyone with an SUV, and one of my friends has them on his CTS-V as well, and has been surprised by snowfall, and it's controllable with these tires as well.

I have been pleased with the Pirelli Scorpion STR tires. They have worn very well and I have not had any issues with them. I have several puncture repairs though so I recently replaced the Pirelli's with Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus tires. The Bridegestones have a better ride, but only time will tell if these wear as well as the Pirelli's did.

245/45R20 - Great tire for winter weather, which we have had a boatload of this year. The tire takes the worry right out of bad weather commuting. It cuts right through the snow and slush and seems to offer a decent grip on glare ice. Coupled with the car's AWD, it's like I'm driving a rally car/tank when other cars around me struggle to move. I probably drive with too much confidence, to be honest. The dry performance sees a reduction in steering precision and ultimate dry traction, which is standard for a winter tire. The noise is also somewhat elevated due to the open block design and high sipe density. I purchased a second set of these for my wife's SUV, which now enjoys the same benefits.
