Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow
Follow-Up Review: 11,500 miles on tires
Super winter tires as experienced in the mid-Atlantic area. Performance doesn't fall off with cold temperatures. Comfort levels are near all-season-radial tire values; not that much worse than the ProContact Conti tires I purchased (which deliver OK performance but will be worn out by about 30,000 miles). Scorpion's mediocre cornering stability and steering responsiveness (big, deep tread blocks) are in tune with minivan's inherent lack of performance. Surprisingly good tread wear. I'll likely replace my all-season-radials with Pirelli tires based on how well these winter Scorpions perform.
Initial Review: 7,500 miles on tires
Had almost no snow or ice this winter but lots of rain. As expected these tires handled the rain without issue. Superior wet weather performance.
After two mid-Atlantic winters these tires impress for their relative quiet, smoothness and overall competence on dry and wet roads. My mpg suffers only a little. I still have 12/32 tread on all 4 tires. Wear has been even, keeping the pressure at 38 to 40 psi.
Just (Mar 28, 2012) took them off for the summer. Put on a set of Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology on my OEM wheels.
