Best Tires for the Mazda CX-5 and CX-9

The Mazda CX-9 and CX-5 are Mazda's mid-sized and full-sized crossover SUVs for the North American market. Despite their roomy interiors, these stylish crossovers have surprisingly nimble handling which makes them fun to drive. When the time comes to choose replacement all-season tires, consider the top tires from the Grand Touring All-Season and Crossover/SU...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I could have gotten 100k highway miles so can't complain much. Did get flat spots if it sat in the cold for a few days. Overall pretty good!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow

I had the factory summer tires still on the vehicle during our first snow of the year in Colorado. It was like Bambi on ice. I could not get a purchase on the road to save my life. It felt like I was on bearings. Once these tires were installed, the difference was night and day. I was cautious with my expectations being such wide tires. I thought that I may...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

When my wife's 2011 X5 was new I exchanged the Michelin Latitude Tour HP run-flats that came with it for regular non run-flat Latitude Tour HP's in an effort to fix the positively terrible ride quality. It helped a great deal but on the factory 19 wheels these new Latitude Tour's were extremely noisy -- I mean really objectionable. At about 40K miles...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Bought the Pirelli Scorpions after reading several positive reviews. Normally buy Michelin, which these replaced but took a chance. Very happy I did, these are great tires! My Q5 is definitely better in the rain vs. the Latitudes that were on it when I bought it. Very quiet and handle well. Wear is apparent at 15k miles with no apparent changes in the tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

This review is for a person that has a vehicle like mine (2013 Porsche Cayenne S) with 21 inch wheels & summer/performance tires and needs all-season or winter tires for some winter driving. There are no all-season tires available in 295/35/21 size. I just had the Tire Rack Perelli Scorpion Winter tires installed and from a driveability and noise standpoint...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I bought these shortly after buying my jeep used back in 2010. Since then i've gone offroading several times and these tires do great considering how quiet they are on-road. Where these tires fall short is snow traction and wear. For some reason the outer part of the tread is made almost half the depth of the inner part so after 20k miles my tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion STR

I am in Missouri, so I don't get too much snow. The OEM Bridgestones were replaced with these Pirellis, and during a recent storm with a layer of ice followed by 8+ inches of snow, the difference was like night and day. The only way the vehicle broke loose was when I tried to force it with excessive acceleration. In all other regards, the tires are a slight...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am not new to Michelin tires, so this was the obvious choice when I was shopping for winter tires. Having said that, I considered Blizzaks and Continentals before my purchase, but the Tire Rack and Consumer Reports reviews for the X-Ice made my decision much easier. Two seasons on these tires, and negligible wear thus far. They handle well for a winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

I live in South Florida (stay out of snow country) but the tires haven't blown me away but have performed acceptably so far. I don't expect to get much more than 5-6000 more miles before replacing them. I am waiting for Tirerack to test the new comparable tires first. I haven't eliminated these from my list of replacements.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

The tire performs very well when pushing the Jeep SRT towards its limits. Sometimes difficult to get the tires to even squeal during hard cornering. I understand why this runflat was spec'd for the SRT. It is not for safety concerns and runflat capabilities, but ultimately to take advantage of the stiffer sidewalls. Unfortunately the tire wears extremely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Ditch the OEM run-flat tires! The Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus tires are much smoother, ride quieter and provide a greater sense of road feel and manners than the OEM Bridestone run-flats, which were a rougher ride and wore out after less than 26,000 miles. Why BMW equips their cars w run-flats is a mystery to me since the run-flats ride is rougher, tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

This tire is a significant upgrade over the Hankook OE tire. The tread wear has been acceptable. The difference in ride quality between this tire and the OE tire is negligible, though hit does seem to have reduced road noise. Driving in snow is acceptable, but that may be due to the AWD in our automobile.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

very smooth and quiet tire for my XC90. I don't know if the mileage is any better, but this is my first Continental purchase and I'm quite happy. I was going to buy the Pirelli Scorpion Verde, but they don't make them in my needed size...I'm very happy that my second choice turned out so well.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Excellent tire in all regards-road holding, performance on very wet roads, quiet and smoothe. In terms of steering responsiveness the Pirelli Scorpion is a little better, but the Pirelli is not as quiet and is much more expensive. The Prada is the best value for money for an SUV tire and provides shockingly good performance across a broad range of road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Replacement tires to the originals on my 2010 Toyota Venza. I'm not an agressive driver and wanted good traction in snow/rain and quiet ride. Have not experienced snow on these tires yet since I just got them at the end of March, but the rain traction is excellent and the noise level is very low with a smooth ride. Very satisified to date with these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I have only had this tire for a few months, but compared to the OEM Yokohama Geolander it replaced, it's like night and day. Living here in Colorado, we see all types of driving conditions. A couple of months ago, we got 8 inches of hail and so I really wanted to test out these tires; I couldn't make them slide, couldn't make them slip, and they stopped...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

First set of Pirelli's ever purchased, bought mainly for good noise level and ride comfort reviews, plus price and rebate. Just completed 1,500 road trip from Bay Area to Seattle and tires were great, noise definitely reduced and ride was very comfortable and stable. All dry weather driving. Will be updating over the life of tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

I bought these Pirelli Scorpion Run-Flat tires to replace the original equipment Bridgestone Duelers on my 2009 BMW X5. Early on, I'm extremely satisfied.I never liked the way the Bridgestones held the road and took turns. The Pirelli Scorpions, on the other hand, hold the road like velcro with a slightly softer ride. During a downpour, they performed...  Read More
