Initial Review, 100 Miles on Tires
January 06, 2014

Needed to get some good all-season tires for my Miata. I was previously on the original tires (2004 LS) which were basically racing slicks. Had zero traction, and was petrified of driving in any snow. I needed something for the brutal Cleveland winters.

Once the General AS03’s were on my car, my new found fear of driving in the snow was gone. I drive carefully in the winter (and like a demon in the non-winter), and as much as everyone thinks a Miata is an awful car in snow, it’s 100% what you have on the wheels. These tires are very grippy in packed snow, very stable in the brown slush, and do not waver on the packed ice the freeways get when it’s super cold. Yes, you can still do donuts and fishtail around the corners when you want to. But if you are an adept driver in awful conditions, this all-season tire is nearly as tight as the Graspix. I say nearly, because those tires are specifically winter tires and their tread is far more snow friendly.

What I do like about the AS03’s is that they are a fantastic middle-ground between winter and summer tires. My previous miata’s Pirelli tires were firm, and the ride was definitely abrasive. If you like that sticky, tactile, feel every bump kind of drive, the AS03’s are not it. The Graspix were absolutely terrible for summer driving, being very spongy in the corners and just basically a “mushy” drive. The AS03’s are right in between; far smoother a ride on dry pavement than the stock tires, but they feel like they handle well in the corners, firm enough sidewalls to take on-ramps twice the speed, but a tread that will let you take that same on-ramp at nearly posted speed in bad conditions.

Granted, I’m only a week in on these tires, I hear they wear pretty quickly, but at this price point it’s far easier for me to replace them every couple/few years than ripping through two sets of tires. Summer will tell when I get back to driving driving again, but for winter performance, these tires are very reliable.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the performance of these tires. I discovered them by doing a search on Tire Rack and reading other reviews. I replaced the oem 255-60-19 Goodyears with the Pirelli 255-55-19. I don't know how much of the handling improvement was due to going to a slightly lower profile and how much is due to the tire construction itself. But I do know that the improved snow and ice traction is all due to the Pirellis. I would highly recommend these tires. When it comes time to replacing these tires I will consider replacing them with the Michelins only because I have had good luck with Michelins in the past. But I would only do so if the reviews for the Michelins were as good or better as the Pirelli's, and the Mich's were very close in price. Otherwise, I know I won't regret purchasing the Pirelli's again and neither ill you.

This tire is flat out amazing! Over the course all my car ownership, I've changed out various kinds of tires, and this by far is the best I've had so far for the price. 25k miles later, they perform just as well if not better as new. The ride is smooth, fairly responsive, and fairly quiet. The best part however is the traction! Both dry and wet traction is pretty amazing. Wet traction shines, as you really gotta try to spin the wheels for them to spin on these boots & dry traction is even better. I've never managed to accidentally peel off, they just stick to the road and give a real sense of confidence. I would no doubt buy them again once these wear out, however would probably go for a 205/55 or 50, as the cornering stability just isn't as nice as 55/50 height. Nevertheless, I can take a 25mph steady speed turn and the car feel stable. On a 55, the same turn can be taken with 30mph.
I do recommend this tire, definitely!

I am so happy with my Pirelli Scorpion Verde's that I can't wait to buy another pair. I had Michelin Energy's on my X5 and yes they are a good all around touring tire, however the price is just outragious. Plus, Pirelli's Scorpion Verde's to me are a far more superior tire from the ride, the handling and the way the tire is built. For example, as soon as they arrived at my home, which was delivered by UPS within a day, I could see the quality of the tire and design that stood out from the Michelin tire. Nevertheless, I recently went on a business trip to Delaware and Philly and let me tell you the noise level was low and the comfort and ride was excellent. I've never seen such deep tread grooves on a tire. This tire can handle Rain, Snow and anything in my opinion. I saved over $150 dollars a tire, Verde $201 and Michelin $350. In closing, I have always wanted to have Pirelli's on my car and now I do and I absolutely love them and recommend them to all. You don't have to spend the big bucks on Michelin, really. Let me reiterate that the Pirelli Scorpion Verde is an ideal tire for a SUV that travels via city and highway and ultimatley gives you that confidence of driving in style and luxury. I will be placing my next order for the other pair by the end of the week. Travel Safe!

Bought these tires to replace the ONM Continentals, which were horrible. At the time I lived in PA, so I wanted tires that could handle moderate snow, which they performed well. Initially the tires were very good in wet conditions, but as the tread wore down some slippage developed from a standing start, but they never hydoplaned. These tires are of block design and I learned the hard way that rotation is essential at every oil change or 5K miles. I let the tires go due to a minor misalignment and they became very noisy. I had them shaved to even out the tread and with frequent rotation I got another 20K out of the tires. Just replaced the tires with 4/32 ends left, so the tread wear is excellent, even after shaving off some tread. These are good rugged tires and I would recommend them for heavy duty use. I went with a different brand this time as snow is no longer an issue for me. One more item, in five years the price of these tires has almost doubled,

A good tire for the price, a little noisier than expected, but if I wanted a quiet tire I would have gone with michelins. Previously had pirelli scorpion atr's, they were the best tires I ever had on my truck, did everything far beyond my expectations, but the price jumped up $300 for the set so I started looking at other options. Decided to try these out, I liked the all terrain tread for the snow and driving on the beach. So far holding up well, probably get 35 to 40,000 out of them, not bad for the way I drive. A lot of tread squirm for the first 2-3,000 miles but settled in after that, had to slow down a lot for the on/off ramp almost felt like I was going to lose it, but never lost traction though. But, after 2-3000 miles the uneasiness went away and the back end didn't fell like it was going to pass me anymore. They definitely don't handle like the pirelli's they replaced, it helps to remind me I'm driving a full size truck and not a sports cars. I'm sure I added about 10,000 miles to the life of the tires because of it. Not necessarily a bad thing.

I think I am the only review here that has these "SUV" tires on a luxury passenger car. I bought these solely on price and reviews on Tire Rack, and I'm very pleasantly surprised at the outstanding quality and value. I came off a set of Hankook V-12's that were an excellent summer tire in all ways except tread life. Since I plan to sell this car in a year or so, I got the "cheapest" tire available. In terms of ride and quietness (2 traits most important to my wife), these even exceeded the Hankooks, which were in themselves vastly superior the the OEM Pirelli P-zeros. In deep snow in Colorado during a ski trip last month, they were outstanding; I did better than a guy in a Grand Cherokee (2wd) we were following during a heavy snow!
Anyone seeking a really good tire at an amazing price, don't hesitate getting these for ANY vehicle.

I purchased this tire after speaking with a customer service representative when I asked for a viable option to the factory Michelin Pilot tires. I have been nothing short of delighted with these tires. They have a slightly harder tread compound than the Pilots did they maintain the cornering stability of the Michelins. Overall, I feel that they driver better than the Michelin Pilots and offer a better value due to better treadware and come in at a lower price point. I would enthusiastically recommend that you consider these tires as an excellent performing, outstanding value replacement tire for heavier SUV's that are used on-road.

These were the factory tires on my wife's 2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS. Overall, not a bad tire. I was very surprised to get 40k miles, although they really could have been replaced 5,000 miles ago, but the weather has been very dry so we've put it off a bit longer. I would call this an average tires. Its got some good things and bad things about it. The worst thing I would say is the road noise as they wear down. Although they were never quiet, they were not an issue the first 20,000 miles or so. After that, they have gotten noticeably louder. If you have more of an economy car like the Elantra that doesn't have good sound deadening for the interior, these tires will get pretty noisy about half way into the tread life.
As far as how they drive, I would say they are great on dry roads, average on wet roads. We've only driven with ice or snow a couple of times since we are in Fort Worth, so we don't have enough feedback to give an honest opinion on ice and snow.
As far as value, I think there are a lot better options available at this price or spend a few bucks more per tire and get something great. We are ready to replace and are going to choose between Pirelli or Yokohama.

I've had these tires for a couple months and have several thousand miles on them now. I waited till Jan. 1st to buy them, as the price dropped drastically...there was a drawback though...they're terrible in cold weather; I live in Virginia Beach, VA and figured it wouldn't be a big deal, as its not like I live in Minnesota (anymore). Anyway, Good luck trying to get traction in the cold..they are after all summer tires! Needless to say, I expected it and do not give a negative rating for that reason. When it warms up, they respond perfectly...rain or sun, they're great tires!!! I do think they'll wear really quick, but just based on a visual check. Oh, and the white letters look a little funny...I think I like it though; but it took a while to get used to it on my BMW! ya don't see white lettered tires on a Bimmer too often haha. Overall, great tires!!!!! Good thing it doesn't get too cold here in VA!

Excellent tire! 35k so far and I'll probably get another 10k, commendable for a 40k rated tire. They have worn evenly with regular rotation. I pull trailers and a boat regularly, drive back trails for camping and atv riding. These tires have never let me down. They have got me thru several good size mud holes, some w/o having to use 4wd. Highway performance and noise level is surprising given it's an offroad tire. I definitely will put these on my truck again. Great return on the price!!

Replaced original Conti contact Pro that where on from factory with these Extremes, a much better feel for less money. They feel tighter control, more responsive. But ya know as tires wear out and then you put new tires on, things always are better. But these do certainly have a tighter grip and steering response from the seemingly slightly maybe softer OEM Conti contacts. They certainly do feel great in pools of water at highway speed, no hydro planing that I can sense. Great tires, priced right. Even got the same ones different size for the Tiguan SEL 4 motion , which replaces OEM Pirreli Scorpions..Extremes from Conti are almost half the price! And people don't seem thrilled with the Pirelli Scorpions. I have always had good luck with Conti stuff, these Extreme Contact feel good. The GTI responds extremely well. with them.

I haven't had these long, but from the tires that were on my car to now it's such a drastic, dramatic improvement. My other vehicle has top end tires that aren't this quiet nor this good on wet/dry traction. At 70 mph it's so quiet I can whisper to my wife and she can hear me. No kidding. It's still very early on to report on tread wear. I've pushed these hard in both rains and dry road on turns, braking, and both combined. They didn't fail. I know tires, and for the price and recognized performance to date, I haven't owned s better set yet. Highly, highly recommended!

The Scorpion Verde All Season is labeled as a Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire because most of the sizes offered cater to mid-size SUVs. However, with many SUVs today being based off of successful car platforms, the tire can go on a wide range of vehicles. I have had many customers use the 255/40R19 on high-end luxury sedans with great success. This would include luxury sedans/wagons like:

  • Audi Allroad
  • Audi A6
  • Audi A8
  • Buick Lacrosse
  • Cadillac CTS Sedan/Wagon
  • Volvo XC70 (Cross Country)

Purchased these tires based on reviews and price. Driven year round for the past two years, grip has been exceptional all season round, winter grip was actually better than the winter set of Pirelli's I drove with previous winters. Two issues with the tires to date: i) Road noise is considerably higher than the OEM bridgestone RE060; ii) Tread wear on rear tires - although I have done extreme driving in them (Toronto - Florida 19 hours non stop averaging 75 mph) the rears are bald while front still in good shape. Purchasing a set of two to replace the rear, but definitely won't buy again in future. I'll move back to the OEM bridgestones, or to Michelin.

This is a performance tire. I have no idea how anyone could get much more than 25-30,00 miles out of these tires..and you should not expect to. Tires have always seemed quiet to my expectations. Didn't have any issues w/ hydroplaning until I got to the wear bars. FYI, don't drive your Mustang in the snow much..not fun. I will almost certainly go w/ these tires again.

I don't regularly rate "10s" on surveys but am making an exception here. I made sure to get the "new" Turanza Serenity plus when ordering based on some excellent reviews and am NOT disappointed a bit! The Turanza's are this car's 3rd set of tires (102k total miles on car) replacing Pirelli P-Zero Nero's (at 100k)that replaced the HORRIBLE OEM Good Year RS-A's (at 48k). Thought the Pirelli's were a great all-around tire until mounting the Bridgestones. Noise is lowest ever and traction in wet and light snow is phenomenal vs the Pirelli's (which was not horrible) and light years better than the Good Year's (which made the car downright scary to drive in wet / slick conditions). Last night's ride home was in a torrential downpour with seriously flooded pavement in places and the Bridgestone's never felt challenged! Had resigned myself to giving up a bit of responsiveness for quieter, longer life but that is not the case. The same "spirited" corners that had the Pirelli's squealing and the Good Years giving up produce great grip with no complaints. I know there are higher performance tires out there for specific conditions / applications but as an all-around performer at a decent price for a vehicle that is not a track day special, I couldn't be happier!

Great all around tire, with a surprisingly cheap price compared to others for my '06 Monte Carlo. No complaints whatsoever in dry and wet conditions. It is a little noisy on the highway, but that may be unfair to the tire because PA highways are mostly in bad shape. The tires like asphalt a lot better than concrete. Winter has been exceptionable in light snow, I have yet to experience anything heavy. Great traction, with average stopping ability.
