Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season
Follow-Up Review: 17,500 miles on tires
Tires are wearing even all around with rotations at 7500. No need to spin balance since new.<br> Still a quiet tire and great handling. <br>Have about 50% tread left. On track for getting about 40K out of these tires. Not too bad for a SUV.
Initial Review: 3,000 miles on tires
Replaced my factory Continental 4x4 which only gave me 20K miles. Compared this Pirelli Verde tire to Michelin Latitude. Price was about the same ($200) although as of this writing I notice Pirelli went up to $224 a tire on this site.
These tires made a big difference in the ride of my XC 90. Vehicle is much more quieter and I am definitely seeing an improvement in gas mileage at about 1.5 miles more a gallon on average.
Also took advantage of Tirerack.com connection to Merchants tire. Tires were delivered in two days and took an hour to install. Merchants recommended tire rotation at every oil change of 7500 miles.
