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!

 

Special Sale on Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season in 255/40R19

Friday, February 22, 2013 by Zig Ziegler

The Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season is a premier Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire. It has continually been ranked in customer surveys and internal tests as a perennial favorite. This eco-friendly option features a quiet and smooth ride, as well as some of the highest marks in wet traction according to "Testing the Newest/Popular Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season Tires".

Scorpion Verde All Season tires mold a silica tread compound into an asymmetric tread design that features an optimized rubber-to-void ratio and uniform contact patch to blend dry road traction and performance with uniform wear. Four wide circumferential grooves displace water to resist hydroplaning and improve wet traction while longitudinal siping for lateral stability on loose surfaces and high-density lateral siping enhance wet and wintertime traction.

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)

Shop by vehicle to see if the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season is offered for your SUV or luxury sedan and take advantage of the current sales price of $135 per tire in the 255/40R19 size.

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.

OEM tires for my 19" wheels. Always impressed w/ traction and handling of these tires. Have worn them down to racing slicks at just under 20,000 miles though..but I do like to drive her hard. 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. Tire prices have gotten ridiculous, still these are about the best deal out there.

Tires bite through snow and slush even up to 6 in. deep,and grip extremely well in icy conditions. Lane changes, going up hill, downhill and braking were executed without a problem. Best tire at this price point -- Highly recommended!

I bought these because it was original equipment, I should have known when I bought the car it had 18,000 miles on it and it needed tires. But I did it anyway and only got 22,000 miles and almost paid double that of a non run flat tire and Im sure I would have gotten double the miles if I had bought the regular tire at half the price

Good all around performance. Nice balance of handling, comfort and value for a 3 season tire. Ride comfort may not be quite soft as some all season alternatives. Our car isn't soft to start with, and the tires can be a little stiff on rough pavement, seams, etc. They don't -----up city bumps like a touring tire. But the trade-off is crisp steering response, no jiggle in loaded corners, and no howls, squeals or complaints in fast cornering, or quick transitions. Despite the all-season rating, I wouldn't recommend it for winter. Tried it briefly, and they do not compare to our dedicated snow tires in snow/ice driving here in Denver. Noise is far better than the Pirelli factory tires. Since install, I've never made mental note of noise being an issue at all. A good option if you don't need all-out Summer Tire price/performance, but would like to avoid soft touring tire pitfalls, and get better wear and improved handling.

I kept the staggered set-up despite advice to use a narrower rear tire. The ride and handling in cold, dry conditons remained fine, and I am definitely glad I maintained the original set-up. This tire is outstanding in snow. Despite having rear wheel drive I was able to safely drive through 6-8 inches of snow and slop before the streets were treated. Last year I was caught with summer tires and got stuck in a suprise snowfall of only 1-2 inches. With these tires even the 8 inches of snow in my unplowed driveway couldn't keep me out of my garage. Have not had them long enough to gauge the treadwear. However, it feels great to no longer have to change vehicles when snowfall is predicted. These tires have given me peace of mind. P.S., Tire Rack's price, customer service, and fast delivery was great too.

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.

I originally tried the P Zero because of a Tire Rack special and a significant price differential to the comparable Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 A/S. These are great tires! Very quiet with a comfortable ride and (in my opinion) better than average dry grip. I even took these to a car control clinic and one auto-cross event and they managed pretty well. These are definitely worth a try if you're looking for a high-performance all-season tire with good wear characteristics.

Actually purchased these in the summer to use as winter skins, as my previous Pirelli Subzero was not available in my weird tire size anymore. On initial install (after storage for three months), experienced vibration and poor wet performance. However, after the first 1000 miles these gremlins vanished. Now wet performance is a good 80% of my autocross Yokes and snow performance is comforting. Was worried that the Generals would be poor in the cold and ice/snow, but this is not the case. Drove through the most recent Iowa blizzard at reasonable pace, easily out maneuvering most of the snow bound traffic. Roads are ice covered now and the G-Max does very well in stopping (most important) and have not had an issue with getting started. Very satisfied with the tire and the price is competitive. Compared to Continental Extreme Contact DWS (my daughters cars), performance is slightly better in the wet/dry and almost equal in the snow, for less money. Cannot comment on wear, as I have just started the winter season. However, I always default to better performance vs. longer life. Life is too short to buy cheap tires.

Save on 225/45R17 and 205/45R17 Run-Flats for Your E90 BMW and MINI Cooper S

Tuesday, January 8, 2013 by Cy Chowattukunnel

Regardless of how much they're liked or disliked, run-flat tires are here to stay. Are you a BMW or MINI driver who loves his or her car and has decided to stay with run-flats? Then you need to take advantage of the specials currently on the 225/45R17 size for your E90 BMW and 205/45R17 for your MINI Cooper S.

The 225/45R17 Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP is marked down from $200 to $129*. If you're already looking for a summer tire, consider the 205/45R17 Pirelli P Zero Run Flat which is now listed for $131*.

Not only are you getting a great deal, you're also getting some awesome tires. The non-run-flat version of the Michelin Primacy MXM4 delivers a great combination of wet grip, steering response and low tread noise for its class. Pirelli P Zero Run Flat's crisp steering response and high grip level make it a good choice for a spirited Mini Cooper S driver. Derived from 100 years of motorsport experience, this Max Performance Summer tire offers a great combination of wet and dry traction with the convenience of temporary extended mobility in the event of complete air pressure loss.

It's also possible to change from run-flat tires to non-run-flat options. These conventional tires will fit your Original Equipment wheels with your driveline, suspension and traction working as normal. To find the best tire option for your BMW or MINI Cooper S, shop by vehicle.

Initial impression, which I will update... The tire, as other WRX owners have said, a noticeable difference in handling! However, it is a winter tire with lots of siping for hard snow/ice grip..it can't be as stiff as the original Dunlops. I also can't wait for my snow test! The ride is quiet..I'm running them at 42 PSI front, 40 PSI rear....seems like at that pressure you get just enough tread on the road..about 1/2 inch from the shoulder....

Purchased them on a set of TireRack private label wheels....Sport Edition. CANNOT BEAT THE PRICE and the wheel seems to be nicely finished! Seems like a lot of wheel weights which makes me wonder about the manufacturing...but..the balance seems perfect..up to 75.

TireRack is great...got them the NEXT DAY...mounted and balanced. I'll update this in a few weeks after some cold weather/snow miles!

I've had these tires on a previous car and would not, under any circumstance, recommend spending $1,500 on them. They're reasonably quiet, but so are a lot of other tires. Traction, both wet and dry, is terrible. After being disappointed with Pirelli tires on several cars (I've owned 29), I would never again put them on another. The Michelins are fantastic (but pricey), and Hankooks that replaced the Pirellis on another car I had were quieter, handled better, and rode better for half the price.
