Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part 2)

As the vehicle has grown, so has it's tire and wheel size.  In this follow-up post, I will cover recommended tires for the third-, fourth- and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I can't tell if the tire comfort is great for this particular application - it seems fine to me. You don't buy a Cayenne Turbo expecting it to be a quiet vehicle, but I've never noticed extra noise from the tires. Handling and acceleration are great as far as SUV standards go.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Initial tires on my Q7 were summer tires. 20,000 miles and worn out. Had a very difficult time finding a 21 inch tire that was not a summer tire. Bought these tires and could not be happier. Quiet, smooth riding, handles wonderfully. Highly recommend. Also recommend the customer service representative that I talked with. Even though the web site showed no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Compared to the stock Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico tires, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ in 255/45R20 size are better in every way. Most notably the ride comfort and road noise are excellent. Wet and dry traction are much improved over the Pirelli. There are not very many choices of tires in this size but regardless I am completely satisfied with these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I have approximately 52,000 miles on these tires and they have performed well on our Touareg. I plan on replacing these tires with the same tire at approximately 60,000 miles. I live in Louisiana and I usually replace my tires a little earlier due to the constant rain. Hydroplaning is not an option when driving on the Causeway.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Travel from Washington to Wisconsin requires good winter tires. I have been very pleased with the Scorpions in any/all conditions encountered. 90% of the time it's dry, so I want to be able to drive like summer tires and also have them quiet. These do both, yet when the wind howls with blowing snow across the Dakotas, they stick and handle very well in that...  Read More

What Tires Are on a Lexus 2017 RX350?

In the luxury midsize SUV market, the Lexus RX350 ranks as one of the best. It’s easy to see why thanks to a great looking interior, spacious room for the driver and passengers, good power and impressive standard features. With a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, the RX350’s tires need to be ready to handle that power and translate it into comfort and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

I purchased these to replace the Bridgestone Duelers Run Flats that came on the vehicle. These Pirellis are easily better in wet and dry conditions and are quieter, smoother, and handle road irregularities much better than the Duelers. These tires finally provide the ride quality I expect from my SUV.Turn in is sharp, handling is precise, and wet traction is...  Read More

This is my second set of these tires, but first set on the Charger. I live in Park City, and just went through a storm of 100 inches of snow in 10 days. The tires have been fantastic.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I drive from Portland to the SF Bay area every winter. I have come across hazardous driving conditions almost every year, with ODOT frequently stopping all traffic requiring chains in order to drive through the various mountain passes. This is the first year I decided to use a dedicated set of winter tires, as I previously thought that all-seasons with my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I bought a 2016 Toyota Highlander in October 2016 and had the dealer swap out the OEM tires with the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus based on a recommendation by a tire rack advisor. The tires were outstanding on dry and wet pavement in October and November. I thought these were the best tires I'd ever put on an SUV based on the performance over the...  Read More

I just put these tires on before snow storm hit Chicago just a couple of days and it is performed very well in 3 inches of snow. The ride comfort and noise is much better than pirelli winter carving edge that I used to have. The tires noise is the same as my pirelli scorpion verde all season. Very impressed with this   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

The first pair of A/S tires I've had to purchase for any vehicle. Performance is great during the few dry day drive and while the roads are wet. Avoid every standing puddle at highway speeds exceeding 60mph, the tires have a tendency to pull hard to the side of the puddles and occasionally causing a brief ESP warning. The water is evacuated fairly fast, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion STR

I average 25K miles per year. As I approach 2 years on these tires (45K miles on them) I have decided to re-purchase them again. I will end up replacing them a little early due to the time of year rather than running them down to the ware bars. Mid January in middle Ga can get a bit slick, and it's not worth pushing them to see how far they will go. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

These things are amazing. So much better than the Pirelli Scorpions that came OE on the Edge. I did up the width by 20mm, diameter stayed the same, but they haven't hydroplaned like the OE tire would in heavy rain. The Edge handles like a much smaller vehicle now, my wife even noticed the difference. I haven't noticed any wear as of yet, and our mileage has...  Read More
