These were a huge improvement over the Mich. stock tires. I will buy a new set mainly because of their excellent handling and traction. I was getting cut off on the highway doing 70, and all I did was a slight turn of the wheel; the response was perfect--no swaying and no need for heavy breaking. That was the day I swore I'd buy them again. I still have about 5 or 7K left, and they still handle nicely, but with road trips coming up I will replace them tomorrow. They've provided me with over 30K miles of safety and great handling.

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.

OEM on my Denali XL, put 110K on them and replaced them with the same thing. That is not a typo--110,000 miles on this set of tires. They did need replacing, but they weren't bald--had 3/32 of tread left at worst point. Never expected to get that kind of mileage out of a tire. Key is to rotate every time you change your oil. These are very fairly priced for what you get with this tire.

I am now on my second set of these tires on my 2005 WRX wagon. Unfortunately I hit a big pothole with my first set and one of them was damaged so I had to replace them prematurely. They were at 7/16ths tread depth and I was on my third summer season with that first set. I just had a new set installed today. I didn't think twice about buying these tires again.

These are my summer tires in Colorado, and I commute over 50 miles per day. I absolutely love these tires. To sum them up, they are comfortable and quiet on my daily commute, but when I go for spirited drives they provide all the performance I need. Sure they're not track tires, but they are grippy and responsive, and they communicate their limit well. For me they are the perfect summer tire for a commuter who likes to have fun driving without worrying about their tires. And I've never had any issues in the rain either. I highly recommend them!
