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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I have a 2013 Ford F150 4x4 crew cab with HD tow package. The tires are OEM. In the 2 1/2 years that I owned the truck, I have put on 55K miles of which 25K miles is pulling a traveler trailer weighing 7K. I could get 5 to 10K more mileage from the tires. But I am planning a 7K mile trip and would rather be safe than sorry. If weather conditions get really...  Read More

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

I replaced a set of General's tires that were noisy. These are much, much better. This matters to me because of hearing impairment. I could not participate in a conversation with my prior tires. Too soon to say anything about tread life.   Read More

What Tires are Best for Your Audi Q7?

First available for the 2007 model year, the Audi Q7 has been a popular choice in the full-size luxury SUV/CUV market. Drivers love the vehicle's style, comfort and overall luxurious performance. And you can't forget about the quattro all-wheel drive system. When it comes to replacing tires, there are four popular sizes offered by Audi. Below are some of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion STR

Best tires ever on my Avalanche's. Very quiet, smooth, so far little wear. I use these mainly in spring to fall in PA, then switch back to OE wheels/tires (Bridgestones)for the bad weather. Just completed a 2500 mile trip and really appreciated the performance of the Pirelli's.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

Thought that a tire review after a few years of ownership would be more beneficial than one done immediately after purchase. The Scorpion Verde tires have been on my wife's CRV since Nov 2011 and now have +41K miles. Tread wear is outstanding. Ride is smooth, grip in rain is excellent, and noise is no more than the original tires (maybe less, but CRVs are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HP2

I recently purchased a full set of Hankook Dynapro HP2 tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler's on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum in 20 P235/55R20. The OEM tires lasted about 30,000 miles with regular rotation ever 7,500 miles. I was a little skeptical about the Dynapro HP2 but have to say, after driving them in the dry, rain and in some light New...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion STR

I am getting a new set after the initial set that came with my Ford Edge lasted 56,000 miles, they would have been on for at least 3,000 more, but a hole in one did not seal so I decided to replace the set. I was amazed at how long they have lasted, and I live on Long Island--lots of driving. Once I had 8 inches of heavy wet snow in my driveway, when my...  Read More
