Pirelli Scorpion ATR
Initial Review: 15,000 miles on tires

I purchased these tires to replace the Bridgestones on the truck when I bought it. It got to be a real pain blowing out the thin sidewalls on the Bridgestones every time they rubbed up against an exposed root or rock on some of the country roads I frequent. The ride quality got a little rougher from moving up to the load range d tires, but stability has greatly improved. I do a fair amount of driving through soft ground ( yup, in a 2WD truck ) and have thus far motored right on through up to 8 deep mud with nary a slip or slide. We don't see much snow and ice this far south and I have no intention on driving north far enough to just to try them out, but a trip to the beach is in the near future. I'll be going along with a 4X4 just in case, but the way these tires handle in the mud, it will interesting to see if the do as well in loose sand. I'd have gone with a set of Dunlop RVXT, but they're no longer available in any size I can use. A great big SCREW YOU to Goodyear for that. I'm thinking I'll put a lift on my Expedition now and put a set of these Pirelli's on it too. Tread wear has been pretty dadgum good too. I'm running 45 psi on a 5600 lb truck and have lost just about 1/32 tread in the 15K miles I've put on them. Dealing with Tire Rack is always a pleasure. Thanks for a great deal on a great set of tires.
